Presynaptic plasticity at two giant auditory synapses in normal and deaf mice

Oleskevich, Sharon; Youssoufian, Monique; Walmsley, Bruce

Description

Large calyceal synapses are often regarded as simple relay points, built for high-fidelity and high-frequency synaptic transmission and a minimal requirement for synaptic plasticity, but this view is oversimplified. Calyceal synapses can exhibit surprising activity-dependent developmental plasticity. Here we compare basal synaptic transmission and activity-dependent plasticity at two stereotypical calyceal synapses in the auditory pathway, the endbulb and the calyx of Held. Basal synaptic...[Show more]
