- What is the sequence of firing between the 4 major regions of the hippocampus?
- Entorhinal cortex > Dentate Gyrus > CA3 > CA1
- Can LTP can be associative (as in classical conditioning)?
- LTP can be associative (as in classical conditioning) in which the close pairing in time of a weak and strong stimulus elicits a response via both the weak and strong synapses. Weak stimuli, when paired with strong stimuli, gain strength in causing the post-synaptic neuron to fire. Think of a conditioned eyeblink response. A previously neutral stimulus comes to elicit a response based on past experience (being paired in time with a strong stimulus).
- Where is FIELD CA1 and how does it ouput?
- Part of the hippocampus, output via fornix
- What is an NMDA receptor?
- A glutamate receptor that controls a calcium channel that is normally blocked by Mg++ ions.
- What has to happen for Calcium to enter the post-synaptic cell?
- GLU must be bound to the NMDA receptor AND Mg++ must be out of the channel.
- What has to happen for the magnesium that is blocking the calcium channel to open?
- The post-syn neuron must depolarize.
- Calcium entry thru the NMDA receptor is ____ and _____ dependant?
- n.t., and voltage
- What does calcium entry mean in terms of its long term effects?
- -more/better functioning of AMPA receptors (CaM-KII is released, no longer needs calcium)
-feedback to pre-synaptic neuron (nitric oxide sythase, enzyme)
- What does CaM-KII do in terms of LTP?
- Once phophorylation takes place, CaM-KII stays active and no longer needs calcium. CaM-KII is essential for new AMPA receptors to be put in place at posy-syn. membrand
- improves conductance of existing channels
-overall more AMPA receptors means it is easier to depolarize the post-syn neuron.
- What is classical conditioning?
- Learning an association between stimuli such that a response developes to a previosly neutral stimulus.
- If a post-synaptic neuron was simultaneiously fired upon by a strong & weak input, the LTP changes should feedback to both inputs making both ___ ?
- What are two possibilities for the occurance of LTD (long-term depression)?
- -Input was particularly weak
- input happened when post-syn. neuron was hyperpolarized
- Ultimately LTD (long-term depression) results in?
- -Decreased AMPA receptors
-Decreased GLU output from pre
- LTP in basal ganglia is important for what kind of learning?
- instrumental conditioning
- LTP in amygdala is important for what kind of learning?
- classical conditioning
