Abstract

The interaction between spontaneous miniature end plate potentials and evoked end plate potentials was investigated at the frog neuromusclular junction using focal extracellular recording techniques. End plate potentials evoked immediately after a spontaneous miniature potential were facilitated by up to 20%. The percentage facilitation was negatively correlated with the average quantal content of the end plate potential.
