Endocannabinoids (eCBs) are feedback messengers in the nervous system that act at the presynaptic nerve terminal to inhibit transmitter release. Here we report that in brain slices from rat, eCBs are released from vasopressin (VP) neurons in the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus following coincident bursts of presynaptic and postsynaptic spiking. eCBs transiently depress glutamate release from excitatory terminals and, in doing so, prevent the synapses from undergoing long-term… CONTINUE READING
