The PDS is initiated or “kicked off” by a fast, non-NMDA-mediated EPSP and sustained by a prolonged, NMDA-mediated EPSP. Compared with the usual NMDA-mediated slow EPSP of approx 10–20 ms, the PDS is longer (30–50 ms) with many more action potentials on top of the depolarization. ). The PDS is followed by a large “post-PDS hyperpolarization” (asterisk in Fig. 5B), which serves to terminate the PDS and stop, at least temporarily, the rampant firing of action potentials. Note that a PDS in neuron 1 may activate a similar PDS in neuron 2, and so on, such that a whole network of neurons can be rapidly recruited into firing in a synchronous manner.
