Long-term potentiation (LTP) is probably the most widely studied form of synaptic plasticity in the mammalian central nervous system. In the early descriptions, the term referred to a sustained increase in synaptic response following a brief high-frequency electrical tetanus. Apparently unique properties of the phenomenon triggered considerable excitement in the field: for many, LTP offered the promise of a potential substrate for learning and/or memory. In the more than 20 years since LTP was… Expand
The plasticity–pathology continuum: Defining a role for the LTP phenomenon
TLDR
A plasticity–pathology continuum model is introduced that is designed to place the various forms of neural modification into proper context and in vitro and kindling receptor regulation studies are used to provide a basis for evaluating the specific synaptic/cellular response modification along the continuum of events. Expand
Long-term potentiation: what's learning got to do with it?
TLDR
It is proposed that LTP may serve as a neural equivalent to an arousal or attention device in the brain and may facilitate the induction of memories at distant synapses. Expand
Progress in Understanding the Factors Regulating Reversibility of Long-term Potentiation
TLDR
The recent data concerning putative depotentiation mechanisms and the implications of this phenomenon in the mechanisms of "forgetting" are summarized, and the prevention of saturation of the storage capacity of a neuronal network is discussed. Expand
The history of long-term potentiation as a memory mechanism: Controversies, confirmation, and some lessons to remember.
TLDR
The empirical evidence strongly suggests that LTP serves as one of the mechanisms affording learning and memory storage in neuronal circuits, and provides valuable insights to neuroscientists exploring the relations between brain and psychological states. Expand
LTP and Kindling: Phenomena of Activity-Dependent Plasticity Influencing Memory and Epilepsy
Kindling and LTP are examples of activity-dependent brain plasticity that have received considerable attention as models of epilepsy and memory. These phenomena of plasticity were first recognizedExpand
Sequential changes in the synaptic structural profile following long‐term potentiation in the rat dentate gyrus. II. Induction / early maintenance phase
TLDR
The results suggest that the specific structural profile associated with 1‐h post‐LTP induction, which differed from the profile observed at 24 h post‐induction, may represent a unique early phase of synaptic remodeling in a series of changes observed during LTP induced, maintenance, and decay.

Differential induction of LTP and LTD is not determined solely by instantaneous calcium concentration: an essential involvement of a temporal factor
Two opposite types of synaptic plasticity in the CA1 hippocampus, long‐term potentiation (LTP) and long‐term depression (LTD), require postsynaptic Ca2+ elevation. To explain these apparentlyExpand
Modification of glutamate receptors by phospholipase A2: its role in adaptive neural plasticity
  • G. Massicotte

  • 2000
TLDR
The results that indicate a critical role of the phospholipases in regulating synaptic function are described and a revised biochemical model is presented as an attempt to integrate the PLA2 enzyme into the mechanisms (in particular kinases and phosphatases) that participate in adaptive neural plasticity.

Long-term potentiation in single wide dynamic range neurons induced by noxious stimulation in intact and spinalized rats.
TLDR
The wind-up phenomenon shows that neurons respond dynamically to stimulation, and indicated that long-term memory of neural sensitization, according to Hebb's paradigm, in that WDR neurons strengthen their responses to nocICEptive signals after strong nociceptive stimulation. Expand
Mechanisms of Central Sensitization of Nociceptive Dorsal Horn Neurons
An important theme in contemporary research on the nervous system is plasticity. The activity of the nervous system is in part dependent on its past activity, which implies that neural responses canExpand

What is the mechanism of long-term potentiation in the hippocampus?
Abstract Brief trains of high-frequency stimulation, delivered to monosynaptic pathways in the hippocampus, can increase the amplitude of evoked potentials for several hours or even days. ThisExpand
The nature and causes of hippocampal long-term potentiation.
TLDR
The nature and causes of LTP are discussed and them to endogenous rhythmic neuronal activity patterns and their potential roles in memory are related and it is argued that the endogenous hippocampal theta rhythm plays a role in LTP induction in vivo. Expand

TLDR
The model that is outlined in this article combines anatomical and electrophysiological evidence to allow apparently contradictory data to be compatible and determine whether the dominant effect observed was pre- or postsynaptic. Expand
Long-term potentiation in the hippocampal CA1 region: its induction and early temporal development.
TLDR
The experimental evidence for the view that LTP is initiated by an influx of calcium ions through synaptically controlled N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor channels is discussed and how LTP develops following its induction is described. Expand
Long-term potentiation and kindling: similar biochemical mechanisms?
TLDR
A molecular mechanism that involves a calcium-dependent protease associated with postsynaptic membranes and the activation of which results in the unmasking of glutamate receptors is proposed, raising the possibility that epilepsy may represent a dangerous side-effect of an efficacious learning mechanism. Expand
Anoxic LTP sheds light on the multiple facets of NMDA receptors
TLDR
It is suggested that the multiple forms of NMDA receptor-dependent LTPs are determined by extracellular and intracellular modulatory sites of this receptor. Expand
Temporally distinct pre- and post-synaptic mechanisms maintain long-term potentiation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the sensitivity of CA1 neurons in hippocampal slices to ionophoretically-applied quisqualate receptor ligands slowly increases following the induction of LTP, which suggests that pre-synaptic mechanisms also contribute, but in a temporally distinct manner, to the maintenance ofLTP.

Quantal mechanism of long-term potentiation in hippocampal mossy-fiber synapses.
TLDR
The quantal mechanism underlying the expression of long-term potentiation (LTP) was studied in the mossy-fiber (mf) synapses of the rat hippocampus and there was a statistically significant reduction in the number of quantal release failures. Expand

TLDR
The results point to the conclusion that mossy fiber potentiation is unlike LTP both in induction and expression mechanisms and thus is a wholly different form of synaptic plasticity. Expand
