The Amplitude of Evoked EPSPs is a Continuous Function of Membrane Potential in the Soma of the Presynaptic Neuron

Figure 20. Graph of the average EPSP amplitude versus membrane potential in the cell body of the presynaptic neuron for 5 different connected pairs of layer 5 pyramidal cells.  The average facilitation is approximately 30% per 10 mV depolarization.
