The identified interneuron L10 in the abdominal ganglion of Aplysia was stimulated to fire action potentials in a random sequence while the early inhibitory potential of its follower cell L2 was recorded. Application of Wiener nonlinear analysis to these data yielded a predictive model of the facilitating postsynaptic potential. The model shows that facilitation changes both the time-course and the magnitude of the early synaptic potential. The facilitated response has a longer duration than… CONTINUE READING
