BACKGROUND The effects of low-frequency conditioning stimulation (LFS, 900 pulses at 1 Hz) of glutamatergic afferents in CA1 hippocampal area using slices from two different strains of adult (3-5 month-old) and aged (23-27 month-old) rats were reinvestigated regarding the discrepancies in the literature concerning the expression of long-term depression (LTD) in the aging brain. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDA-R) dependent LTD was examined in both adult (n… CONTINUE READING
