Induction of Long-Term Depression of Synaptic Transmission in a Co-Culture of DRG and Spinal Dorsal Horn Neurons of Rats


In a co-culture of dissociated neurons of lumbar dorsal root ganglia (DRG) and spinal dorsal horn (DH) neurons of newborn rats, we examined peculiarities of induction of long-term depression (LTD) of synaptic transmission through synapses formed by primary afferents on DH neurons. Induction of LTD was provided by low-frequency (5 sec−1) microstimulation of… (More)
