1990). When examining the possible mechanisms of mechanisms of modification of inhibitory transmission, we focused our attention on several features. First, this modification is input-specific, since LTPi developed as a result of the stimulation of inhibitory inputs, but was not observed on unstimulated inhibitory inputs (Komatsu, 1994). Second, we have shown that LTP of inhibitory inputs to a target cell could be induced simultaneously with LTP of one or two excitatory inputs to the same target cell.
