Spontaneous network activity transiently depresses synaptic transmission in the embryonic chick spinal cord

Fedirchuk, Brent; Wenner, Peter; Whelan, Patrick; Ho, Shi Hui (Mirabelle); Tabak, Joel; O'Donovan, M


We examined the effects of spontaneous or evoked episodes of rhythmic activity on synaptic transmission in several spinal pathways of embryonic day 9-12 chick embryos. We compared the amplitude of synaptic potentials evoked by stimulation of the ventrolateral funiculus (VLF), the dorsal or ventral roots, before and after episodes of activity. With the exception of the short-latency responses evoked by dorsal root stimulation, the potentials were briefly potentiated and then reduced for several...[Show more]
