The role of pertussis toxin (PTX)-sensitive G-proteins in corticostriatal synaptic transmission and long-term synaptic depression (LTD) was examined using extracellular field potential and whole cell voltage-clamp recordings in striatal slices. High-frequency stimulation (HFS) produced LTD, defined as long-lasting decreases both in synaptically driven population spikes (PSs) measured with field potential recording and in excitatory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs) measured with whole cell… CONTINUE READING
