Activity-dependent synaptic plasticity regulates the flow of information in neuronal networks and has important implications for the expression of behavior. We find a functional role for short-term synaptic enhancement (STE) such as facilitation, augmentation, and post-tetanic potentiation at central synapses in the sea slug Aplysia californica. Consummatory feeding in Aplysia such as rhythmic biting is controlled by command-like cerebral-buccal interneurons (CBIs) that drive rhythmic motor… CONTINUE READING
