Endocannabinoids Mediate Synaptic Plasticity at Mixed Synapses

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

3 Scopus citations


Endocannabinoids are generally known to suppress excitatory or inhibitory synaptic transmission. Now, in an elegant series of experiments, Cachope et al. reveal a novel signaling pathway whereby endocannabinoids indirectly potentiate mixed chemical and electrical synapses. Gap junction-mediated transmission can thus be potentiated via distinct frequency-dependent mechanisms.
