Abstract

The actions of the neuromodulator serotonin (5HT) in Aplysia sensory neurons can be dissociated on the basis of their sensitivity to the 5HT receptor antagonist cyproheptadine, and their concentration requirement to 5HT. Here we summarise a series of experiments that suggest that mechanistically distinct processes contribute to the different physiological components of short- and long-term synaptic plasticity.
