Precise control of synaptic strength is critical for maintaining accurate network activity and normal brain functions. Several major brain diseases are related to synaptic alterations in the adult brain. Detailed descriptions of the normal physiological properties of adult synapses are scarce, mainly because of the difficulties in performing whole cell patch-clamp recording in brain slices from adult animals. Here we present the portrait of excitatory synapses and intrinsic properties of medium… CONTINUE READING
