The monosynaptic field excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) evoked in the optic tectum of the frog (Rana remporaria) in vitro by different patterns of stimulation of the contralateral optic nerve were studied using extracellular recording. Pulse trains at frequencies of less than or equal to 0.033 Hz elicited field potentials of stable amplitude, whereas in the range 0.33–1.0 Hz EPSPs showed a depression in the first few responses subsequent to the first one, followed by a partial… CONTINUE READING
