Types of synaptic transmission of importance at the microcircuit level

The significance of the following synaptic characteristics for the operation of microcircuits will be detailed:

Depressing, and facilitating synapses - fast synaptic interaction, gap junctions at soma-dendritic and axonal levels, slow synaptic transmission, retrograde dendro-synaptic modulation, paracrinic mechanisms and spill over.
