Chloride-Mediated Feedforward Inhibition Is Not Involved in Long-Term Potentiation
Long-term potentiation (LTP) can be defined as a semipermanent increase in synaptic efficacy that can be induced by tetanic stimulation of afferents. The cellular mechanisms underlying LTP are still unclear. Both presynaptic (Dolphin et al., 1982; Lynch et al., 1985) and postsynaptic (Lynch and Baudry, 1984) changes correlated with LTP have been reported.
