Short-term depression shapes information transmission in a constitutively active GABAergic synapse

Scientific Reports

Dec 4, 2019

Hagar Lavian, Alon Korngreen

Abstract

Short-term depression is a low-pass filter of synaptic information, reducing synaptic information transfer at high presynaptic firing frequencies. Consequently, during elevated presynaptic firing, little information passes to the postsynaptic neuron. However, many neurons fire at relati...read more

Synaptic Junctions

Synaptic or neuronal junctions are the site of transmission of electrical nerve impulses between neurons or between neurons and effector cells. Discover the latest research on synaptic junctions here.

RNAi & Gene Silencing

RNA Interference (RNAi) pathway is involved in post-transcriptional gene silencing, transcriptional silencing and epigenetic silencing as well as its use as a tool for forward genetics and therapeutics. Discover the latest research here.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Secondary Parkinson disease

Secondary Parkinson disease refers to a group of disorders that present similarly to Parkinson disease but have different etiology. Secondary Parkinson disease is caused due to the blockade of or interference in dopamine’s action in the basal ganglia. Here is the latest research.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.

Corticobasal Degeneration

Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD)is a rare, neurodegenerative disease of the cerebral cortex and the basal ganglia, characterized by movement disorders. Discover the latest research on CBD here.
