MK-801 Prevents the Induction of Long-Term Potentiation
The effects of the pre-incubation of hippocampal slices with MK-801 was examined on synaptic events in the Schaffer collateral-commissural pathway. Treatments which blocked NMDA receptor-mediated synaptic responses also prevented the induction of long term potentiation.
