Spatially restricted actions of BDNF

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

25 Scopus citations


In this issue of Neuron, Zhang and Poo present evidence for localized BDNF-induced synaptic potentiation that is accompanied by spatially restricted calcium influx and requires local axonal protein synthesis. These results are consistent with a synapse-specific role for BDNF and provide a potentially novel way to think about cellular mechanisms for potentiation of neurotransmitter release.
