The effects of superfusion of norepinephrine (NE) on perforant path (PP) evoked potentials in the dentate gyrus were evaluated in the rat hippocampal slice preparation. Superfusion of NE (10 microM) produced a facilitation of the PP evoked responses. Facilitation of the synaptically-evoked responses was expressed in the field potential as an increase in extracellular excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) (117% of control), a decrease in population spike onset latency (94% of control) and an… CONTINUE READING
