Plasticity of Horizontal Connections at a Functional Border in Adult Rat Somatosensory Cortex

Figure 3

LTP induced by a pairing paradigm given to both continuous representation and discontinuous representation pathways. (a) Schematic drawing of the pairing protocol. Both pathways are paired alternately to induce synaptic plasticity. (b) Example of PSPs from a cell where both pathways underwent LTP. Gray traces are averaged baseline PSPs. Black traces are averaged traces 20 minutes postpairing. Traces are averaged over 5 minutes (15 traces) for both pre- and postpairing PSPs, (c) % change of PSP amplitude over time for the cell shown in 2. PSP amplitude change was averaged over five minute intervals.
