1. We investigated the effect of reducing transmitter release on the time course of multiquantal, evoked synaptic currents to test for transmitter "cross talk" between neighboring synaptic release sites within a calyceal synapse. By using a brain slice preparation, neurons in the chick nucleus magnocellularis (nMAG) were voltage clamped and individual presynaptic axons were stimulated to evoke excitatory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs). 2. Application of 100-microM baclofen or 50-microM GABA in… CONTINUE READING
