We have previously found that the induction of hippocampal long-term potentiation (LTP) is modulated by neuron activities in the basolateral amygdala (BLA). However, little is known about what neurotransmitter system in the BLA contributes to modulation of hippocampal LTP. In the present study, we investigated possible involvement of BLA dopaminergic system in the induction of LTP at the perforant path (PP)-dentate gyrus (DG) granule cell synapses of anesthetized rats. The induction of PP-DG… CONTINUE READING
