Differing effects of intracortical circuits on plasticity


Practice of a motor task leads to an increase in amplitude of motor-evoked potentials (MEP) in the exercised muscle. This is termed practice-dependent plasticity, and is abolished by the NMDA antagonist dextromethorphan and the GABAA agonist lorazepam. Here, we sought to determine whether specific subtypes of GABAA circuits are responsible for this effect… (More)
