Status Epilepticus Enhances Depotentiation after Fully Established LTP in an NMDAR-Dependent but GluN2B-Independent Manner

Figure 5

Comparison of posttetanic potentiation (PTP) and LTP in all experiments. (a, b) Box-whisker plots show posttetanic potentiation (PTP, panel (a)) and long-term potentiation (LTP, panel (b)) of all experiments presented in Figures 1, 2, and 4. Note the higher skewness of the data obtained from post-SE slices in both calculations. There was one control slice (indicated by an arrow) which showed a posttetanic depression and consequently LTD rather than PTP and LTP. While PTP was not statistically different between control and post-SE tissues, enhanced LTP in post-SE slices reached statistical significance (; Mann-Whitney test).
