This is a new model of the short-term dynamics of glutamatergic synaptic transmission, which incorporates multiple mechanisms acting at differing sites and across a range of different time scales (ms to tens of seconds). In the paper, we show that this model can accurately reproduce the experimentally measured time-course of short term depression across different stimulus frequencies at the calyx of Held. The model demonstrates how multiple forms of activity-dependent modulation of release probability and vesicle pool depletion interact, and shows how stimulus-history-dependent recovery from synaptic depression can arise from dynamics on multiple time scales.
