Synaptic depression was studied using capacitance measurements in synaptic terminals of retinal bipolar neurons. Single 250 msec depolarizations evoked saturating capacitance responses averaging approximately 150 fF, whereas trains of 250 msec depolarizations produced plateau capacitance increases of approximately 300 fF. Both types of stimuli were followed by pronounced synaptic depression, which recovered with a time constant of approximately 8 sec after single pulses but required >20 sec for… CONTINUE READING
