Vertebrate studies
The goal of my study on vertebrat CNS is to use whole-cell patch clamp technique in hippocampal slices from juvenile rats, and to analyse the involvement of glutamat- and GABAergic transmission in long-term-depression (LTD). To this aim, quantal analysis of spontaneous and evoked postsynaptic currents was performed in control conditions and after induction of LTD. I learned tfhe preparation of hippocampal brain slice from juvenile rats and I am recorded also glutamatergic currents evoked by local stimulation
