Dorsal root afferents form synaptic connections on motoneurons a few days after motoneuron clustering in the rat lumbar spinal cord, but frequent spontaneous synaptic potentials are detected only after birth. To increase our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the differentiation of synaptic transmission, we examined the developmental changes in properties of spontaneous synaptic transmission at early stages of synapse formation. Spontaneous postsynaptic currents (PSCs) and tetrodotoxin… CONTINUE READING
