Recent reports indicate that the exposure of brain tissues to transcranial magnetic stimulation induces persistent changes in neuronal activity and influences hippocampal synaptic plasticity. However, the modulation of synaptic efficiency by magnetic stimulation in vitro is still unclear. In the present study, we investigated whether high-frequency magnetic stimulation (HFMS) can induce long-term potentiation (LTP) in rat hippocampal slices in vitro. During baseline recording and after HFMS… CONTINUE READING
