Early onset long term depression (LTD) during the first postnatal week has rarely been demonstrated at the medial nucleus of trapezoid body (MNTB) - lateral superior olive (LSO) synapses in spite of many favorable conditions, such as depolarizing synapses and glutamate co-release from MNTB terminals. Thus, we tested the early expression of LTD at MNTB-LSO synapses during the first postnatal week using circling mice, whose main transmitter is glutamate at MNTB-LSO synapses. Tetanic stimulation… CONTINUE READING
