Synaptic plasticity in the CA1 and CA3 hippocampal region of pre- and postnatally lead-exposed rats.

Abstract

The effects of low level lead exposure on synaptic plasticity in hippocampal regions CA1 and CA3 were determined in adult rats in vitro. In the CA3 region the NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate)-independent mossy fiber-CA3 synapse potentiation was not influenced by chronic pre- and postnatal lead exposure, while in the same rats, in the CA1 region the NMDA… (More)
