This chapter considers methods for measurements of postsynaptic responses and simple approaches to the estimation of parameters of quantal release in synapses of the central nervous system of vertebrates. The use of these methods is illustrated by the analysis of single-fibre and "minimal" monosynaptic postsynaptic potentials (PSPs) or currents (PSCs) recorded from neurons of the frog spinal cord and rat hippocampus. First, we briefly discuss traditional methods of the response measurements… CONTINUE READING
