In a brain model, a unit of long-term memory is stored in the encoding synapses of a neuron as a presynaptic axonal 'on-off' pattern through the establishment of long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD). Repetitive activation of one presynaptic axonal 'on-off' pattern speeds up the subsequent re-activation of the same pattern by inducing expression of a corresponding group of genes in support of the enzymes, protein substrates, and second messengers for the LTP and LTD that… CONTINUE READING
