Synaptic long-term enhancement (LTE) induced by a heterosynaptic neural input.

Abstract

The slow excitatory postsynaptic potential (s-EPSP) response of cat stellate ganglion can be enhanced for hours (long term enhancement, LTE) following a conditioning preganglionic train of low frequency pulses, even when test s-EPSPs are elicited by an unconditioned input line. This provides another model for associational alterations of synaptic efficacy.
