- Differences in kainate receptor involvement in hippocampal mossy fibre long-term potentiation depending on slice orientationJohn L Sherwood
MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity, School of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Bristol, BS8 1TD, UK
Neurochem Int 61:482-9. 2012..Transverse slices have denser fibre tracts but a smaller proportion of giant mossy fibre boutons. These results further demonstrate a considerable heterogeneity in the functional properties of the mossy fibre projection...
