The putative role of a postsynaptic cell in plasticity of a synaptic contact was investigated. Intraccllular high frequency stimulation of giant parietal interneurons increased the amplitude of EPSPs evoked in these cells by testing nerve stimulation for 20 min. As a control, the amplitude of the synaptic response evoked by the same testing stimulus was monitored in a functionally similar, simultaneously recorded neuron. The EPSP amplitude habituated in the non-stimulated neuron, while it simultaneously increased in the stimulated one. Only stimulation with 15 Hz frequency was effective. Possible mechanisms of effectiveness of high frequency stimulation are discussed.
