  1. Nicolelis, MAL (2002). Depression at thalamocortical synapses: the key for cortical neuronal adaptation?. Neuron, 34(3), 331-332. [11988163]
    (last updated on 2019/01/19)

    Neuronal adaptation to repetitive sensory stimuli is ubiquitous in the mammalian cortex. Despite its prevalence, the cellular mechanisms underlying this basic physiological property remain a matter of dispute. In this issue of Neuron, Chung et al. provide conclusive evidence that depression of thalamocortical synapses may play a significant role in the expression of neuronal adaptation in the rat somatosensory cortex.
