Presynaptic and postsynaptic mechanisms underlie paired pulse depression at single GABAergic boutons in rat collicular cultures

Kirischuk, Sergei; Clements, John D; Grantyn, Rosemarie


Paired pulse depression (PPD) is a common form of short-term synaptic plasticity. The aim of this study was to characterise PPD at the level of a single inhibitory bouton. Low-density collicular cultures were loaded with the Ca2+ indicator Oregon Green-1, active boutons were stained with RH414, and action potentials were blocked with TTX. Evoked IPSCs (eIPSCs) and presynaptic Ca2+ transients were recorded in response to direct presynaptic depolarisation of an individual bouton. The single...[Show more]
