The neocortex is an important site of memory storage, and memories are believed to be formed in the cortex by the activity-dependent modification of synaptic connections. However, in contrast to the hippocampus where there has been an increasingly sophisticated analysis of synaptic plasticity, relatively little is known about the mechanisms of synaptic modification in neocortex. Here we summarize the results of a series of experiments conducted on slices of visual cortex in vitro, aimed at… CONTINUE READING
