Quantal analysis of synaptic plasticity in the rat hippocampus

Abstract:

Long-term potentiation (LTP) is a long-lasting increase in efficacy shown by some synapses in the brain and elsewhere that might be involved in certain types of learning and memory. It has been most intensively studied in the hippocampus, a brain area known to be important in memory. LTP induction is triggered by a rise in calcium concentration inside the postsynaptic cell. Whether LTP is expressed presynaptically or postsynaptically ...
