Chemical and stimulus-induced NMDA-dependent plasticity and the possible involved mechanisms
Long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD) are considered as the most important forms of synaptic plasticity involved in learning and memory. The traditional way to induce LTP and LTD is by electric ...
Plasticity of the developing glutamate synapse in the hippocampus
Synapses are highly plastic, i.e. they have the ability to change their signaling strength both in the short- and long-term (e.g. long-term potentiation - LTP) in response to specific patterns of activity. In the developing ...
