Abstract

Excitatory and inhibitory synapses show long-term plasticity, but spike timing-dependent plasticity was seen only at excitatory connections. No longer. In this issue of Neuron, Woodin et al. demonstrate that coincident pre- and postsynaptic activity acts on the neuronal K+/Cl- cotransporter KCC2 to shift the reversal potential for Cl- and thus alters the effectiveness of GABAergic synapses.
