Synaptic transmission is a dynamic process. Postsynaptic responses wax and wane as presynaptic activity evolves. This prominent characteristic of chemical synaptic transmission is a crucial determinant of the response properties of synapses and, in turn, of the stimulus properties selected by neural networks and of the patterns of activity generated by those networks. This review focuses on synaptic changes that result from prior activity in the synapse under study, and is restricted to short… Expand
Short-term ionic plasticity at GABAergic synapses
TLDR
A form of activity-dependent plasticity that is somewhat unique to GABAergic transmission is examined, which involves short-lasting changes to the ionic driving force for the post-synaptic receptors, a process referred to as short-term ionic plasticity. Expand
Short-Term Synaptic Plasticity in Central Pattern Generators
TLDR
CPG networks produce rhythmic patterned outputs without patterned input and central pattern generator (CPG) are best understood in the analysis of rhythmic motor activities such as locomotion and respiration. Expand
ASTROCYTE-MEDIATED SHORT-TERM SYNAPTIC DEPRESSION
Short-term synaptic plasticity, the activity-dependent regulation of synaptic efficacy that occurs in the timeframe of milliseconds to seconds, is a fundamental property of the synapse, mostlyExpand
Synaptic Heterogeneity and Stimulus-Induced Modulation of Depression in Central Synapses
TLDR
An optimization method is developed that allows rapid characterization of synapses with multiple time scales of facilitation and depression and emphasizes that synaptic efficacy depends on both the individual properties ofsynapses and their past history. Expand

TLDR
It has been postulated that short-term facilitation could be due to a specific high affinity calcium sensor that binds calcium for hundreds of milliseconds and increase release probability, and the fact that manipulation of mobile intracellular calcium buffers can affect the time course of the facilitation without altering phasic release at some synapses argues in favour of this putative second sensor.

Synaptic plasticity and Hebbian cell assemblies
Synaptic dynamics are critical to the function of neuronal circuits on multiple timescales. In the first part of this dissertation, I tested the roles of action potential timing and NMDA receptorExpand
Long-term plasticity determines the postsynaptic response to correlated afferents with multivesicular short-term synaptic depression
TLDR
To understand how correlations from synaptic dynamics and from presynaptic synchrony shape the postsynaptic response, a model of multiple release site short-term plasticity is studied and exact results for the crosscorrelation function of vesicle occupancy and neurotransmitter release are derived.

The Role of Presynaptic Dynamics in Processing of Natural Spike Trains in Hippocampal Synapses
TLDR
A simple mechanistic model of STP, derived in large part from basic principles of synaptic function, that reproduces this highly nonlinear synaptic behavior and predicts strong calcium dependence of synaptic filtering properties, which is verified experimentally in rat hippocampal slices. Expand
Components of Activity-dependent Synaptic Plasticity Phases of enhanced synaptic transmission
Chemical synapses are rarely static transmitters of information between neurons. Their effectiveness waxes and wanes, dependent upon frequency of stimulation and history of prior activity. At mostExpand
Acute changes in short-term plasticity at synapses with elevated levels of neuronal calcium sensor-1
TLDR
It is shown that increases in the calcium binding protein neuronal calcium sensor-1 (NCS-1) can switch paired-pulse depression to facilitation without altering basal synaptic transmission or initial neurotransmitter release probability, and it is concluded that separate mechanisms are responsible for determining basal synaptic strength and short-term plasticity.

Switching Off and On of Synaptic Sites atAplysia Sensorimotor Synapses
TLDR
This analysis shows that both synaptic depression caused by homosynaptic activity and synaptic facilitation induced by an endogenous facilitatory transmitter occur by means of the shutting off and turning on of synaptic sites, without intermediate changes in the probability of release. Expand
Short-term synaptic plasticity.
TLDR
The evidence for this hypothesis, the origins of the different kinetic phases of synaptic enhancement, as well as the interpretation of statistical changes in transmitter release and roles played by other factors such as alterations in presynaptic Ca 2+ influx or postsynaptic levels of [Ca 2+]i are discussed. Expand
Multiple overlapping processes underlying short-term synaptic enhancement
TLDR
Results suggest that these processes can now be distinguished mechanistically by the site of their induction within the presynaptic terminal: FI and F2 appear to be induced by a rapid, high concentration of Ca2+ at or near the sites of exocytosis, whereas AUG and PTP seem to beinduced by lower levels of Ca 2+ with slower kinetics, possibly within the core of the terminal.

Synaptic depression: a dynamic regulator of synaptic communication with varied functional roles
It appears that a bewildering array of processes can contribute to the mechanism of synaptic depression. Markram and Tsodyks argued that the depression they observed in cortical cells was probablyExpand
Interplay between Facilitation, Depression, and Residual Calcium at Three Presynaptic Terminals
TLDR
The interplay of facilitation and depression dictates synaptic strength and variability during repetitive activation, and the resulting synaptic plasticity transforms the timing of presynaptic spikes into varying postsynaptic response amplitudes. Expand
Activity-induced changes in synaptic release sites at the crayfish neuromuscular junction
TLDR
Electrophysiological studies suggest that the number of “active” synapses contributing transmitter quanta at low frequencies of stimulation increases during and after a train of high-frequency stimulation, but not all released quanta produce a voltage change in the postsynaptic muscle cell. Expand
Properties of synaptic transmission at single hippocampal synaptic boutons
TLDR
Key functional characteristics of individual presynaptic boutons of hippocampal neurons in culture are described, raising the possibility of a very effective mechanism for coordinating synaptic strength at multiple sites throughout the dendritic tree. Expand
Mechanism and Kinetics of Heterosynaptic Depression at a Cerebellar Synapse
TLDR
Results indicate that presynaptic GABAB receptors can sense extrasynaptic inhibitory neurons increases of several micromolar and that they rapidly regulate the release of neurotransmitter primarily by modulating voltage-gated calcium channels. Expand
Residual Ca2 + and short-term synaptic plasticity
TLDR
It is found that facilitation, augmentation and potentiation are caused by the continuing action of residual Ca2 + acting at a separate site fromfacilitation, and these sites are different from the molecular target triggering neurosecretion. Expand
Metaplasticity of Mossy Fiber Synaptic Transmission Involves Altered Release Probability
TLDR
It is suggested that lasting changes in neurotransmitter release probability caused by neuronal activity may be a powerful mechanism for metaplasticity that modulates both short- and long-term plasticity in the mossy fiber-CA3 synapse after status epilepticus. Expand
