The supramammillary nucleus (SUM) of the hypothalamus sends neural projections to the hippocampus and is supposed to be involved in learning and memory. To test the possibility that SUM afferents modulate hippocampal functions, we investigated the effect of electrical stimulation of the SUM on the induction of long-term potentiation (LTP) at medial perforant path (PP)--granule cell synapses in the dentate gyrus (DG) of anaesthetized rats. High-frequency stimulation of the SUM (100 pulses at 100… CONTINUE READING
