Description

The aim of this study was to examine: (1) whether long-term potentiation (LTP) can be induced in slices from adult rat visual cortex under conditions where inhibition is not antagonized, and (2) the role of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in its induction. The field potential elicited in layer III in response to stimulation of the subcortical white matter consisted of a component with peak latency 5-8 ms (N1) and, in most slices, a second component with peak latency
