The mechanism of the potentiating action of phorbol diacetate on synaptic transmission in the hippocampus was studied by the quantal analysis technique. Thin transverse sections were prepared from guinea pig hippocampus and intracellular potentials were recorded from CA3 neurons. Unitary excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) were induced in the impaled neurons by brief glutamate pulses administered to granule cells. The amplitude of the unitary EPSPs fluctuated according to Poisson… CONTINUE READING
