Cholinergic Neurotransmission and Synaptic Plasticity Concerning Memory Processing

Abstract

The brain is able to change the synaptic strength in response to stimuli that leave a memory trace. Long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD) are forms of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity proposed to underlie memory. The induction of LTP appears mediated by glutamate acting on AMPA and then on NMDA receptors. Cholinergic muscarinic… (More)
