Article Title: The two sides of hippocampal mossy fiber plasticity (Review)
Abstract: Two studies in this issue of Neuron (Kwon and Castillo and Rebola et al.) show that the mossy fiber-CA3 pyramidal neuron synapse, a hippocampal synapse well known for its presynaptic plasticity, exhibits a novel form of long-term potentiation of NMDAR-mediated currents, which is induced and expressed postsynaptically.
