Increased mIPSCs frequency indicates an alteration in the presynaptic terminal, leading to the increased probability of synaptic vesicle fusion and neurotransmitter release, whereas increased mIPSCs amplitude reflects an increase in postsynaptic receptor sensitivity to the released GABA, possibly due to changes in receptor subunit composition or number.[sup][18] Propofol slows the decay time of mIPSCs, showing that propofol might act at postsynaptic sites.
