1. Field potential recordings were used in rat motor cortex (MI) slice preparations to investigate the potential for activity-dependent modifications in the effectiveness of synaptic connections formed by layer II/III horizontal projections. 2. Long-term potentiation (LTP) of synaptic efficacy in MI horizontal pathways could be produced at short (0.5 mm) and long (1.0 mm) distances by theta burst stimulation (TBS), but only during local, transient application of the gamma-aminobutyric acid-A… CONTINUE READING
