Previous studies reported that exposure to an acute stressor of restraint and intermittent tailshock impairs long-term potentiation (LTP) in area CA1 of the rat hippocampus. In the first experiment, the longevity of the stress-induced impairment of LTP was determined. LTP of the excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) was impaired 2 but not 4 days after stressor cessation. Exposure to the stressor also persistently enhanced the synaptic response to the tetanic stimulation patterned after theta… CONTINUE READING
