The objective of this study was to evaluate the role of beta-adrenergic receptors in modulating associative long-term potentiation (LTP) induced at CA1 synapses. Two independent Schaffer collateral pathways were stimulated in hippocampal slices. The field EPSP (fEPSP) response evoked in one pathway (the weak pathway) was small, whereas a large response, usually 80-90% of the maximum, was evoked in the strong pathway. After recording of the baseline fEPSP evoked at 0.033 Hz, LTP of the weak… CONTINUE READING
