Learning, memory and brain development are associated with long-lasting modifications of synapses that are guided by specific patterns of neuronal activity. Such modifications include classical Hebbian plasticities (such as long-term potentiation and long-term depression), which are rapid and synapse-specific, and others, such as synaptic scaling and metaplasticity, that work over longer timescales and are crucial for maintaining and orchestrating neuronal network function. The cellular… Expand
Synaptic plasticity of NMDA receptors: mechanisms and functional implications
TLDR
Given the unique biophysical properties of N MDARs, synaptic plasticity of NMDAR-mediated transmission emerges as a particularly powerful mechanism for the fine tuning of information encoding and storage throughout the brain. Expand
AMPA Receptor Trafficking in Homeostatic Synaptic Plasticity: Functional Molecules and Signaling Cascades
TLDR
The recently identified functional molecules and signaling pathways that are involved in homeostatic plasticity are reviewed, especially theHomeostatic regulation of AMPAR localization at excitatory synapses is reviewed. Expand
Long-Term Potentiation and Depression as Putative Mechanisms for Memory Formation
TLDR
This chapter attempts an overview of the mechanisms underlying induction and maintenance of long-lasting activity-dependent synaptic modifications as at least one of the key mechanisms by which experiences modify neural circuit behavior. Expand
Differential Subcellular Targeting of Glutamate Receptor Subtypes during Homeostatic Synaptic Plasticity
TLDR
It is shown in rat organotypic hippocampal slices that prolonged network silencing induced a robust surface upregulation of GluA2-lacking AMPARs, not only at synapses, but also at extrasynaptic dendritic and somatic regions of CA1 pyramidal neurons. Expand
Experience-dependent changes in NMDA receptor composition at mature central synapses
TLDR
These findings suggest that mature glutamatergic synapses may be modified by recent activity via alterations in synaptic NMDAR function, and may regulate plasticity and modulate cognitive abilities in adulthood. Expand
G protein-coupled receptors control NMDARs and metaplasticity in the hippocampus.
TLDR
The protein kinase signal cascades stimulated by Galphaq and Galphas coupled GPCRs are discussed and how control of NMDAR activity shifts the threshold for the induction of LTP is described. Expand
Mechanisms of Synaptic Homeostasis and their Influence on Hebbian Plasticity at CA1 Hippocampal Synapses
TLDR
It is shown in rat organotypic hippocampal slices that prolonged network silencing induced a robust surface upregulation of GluA2-lacking AMPARs, not only at synapses, but also at extrasynaptic dendritic and somatic regions of CA1 pyramidal neurons. Expand
Excitability, synaptic balance, and addiction: The homeostatic dynamics of ionotropic glutamatergic receptors in VTA after cocaine exposure
TLDR
The role of homeostatic mechanisms in the neurobiology of cocaine addiction is assessed by providing a brief overview of the parallels between cocaine-induced synaptic potentiation and long-term synaptic adaptations, focusing on the regulation of GluA1- and GluN1- containing receptors. Expand
Arc/Arg3.1 Is Essential for the Consolidation of Synaptic Plasticity and Memories
TLDR
A critical role is demonstrated in the consolidation of enduring synaptic plasticity and memory storage in Arc/Arg3.1 knockout mice that fail to form long-lasting memories for implicit and explicit learning tasks, despite intact short-term memory. Expand
AMPA and NMDA glutamate receptor trafficking: multiple roads for reaching and leaving the synapse
TLDR
New findings that shed light on the regulation of receptor cycling events and surface trafficking are focused on and the way that this might reshape the thinking about the specific regulation of receptors accumulation at synapses is considered. Expand

AMPA receptor trafficking and synaptic plasticity.
TLDR
The growing literature that supports a critical role for AMPA receptors trafficking in LTP and LTD is reviewed, focusing on the roles proposed for specific AMPA receptor subunits and their interacting proteins. Expand
NMDA-receptor trafficking and targeting: implications for synaptic transmission and plasticity
TLDR
Evidence that NMDA receptors undergo dynamically regulated targeting and trafficking, and that the physical transport ofNMDA receptors in and out of the synaptic membrane contributes to several forms of long-lasting synaptic plasticity are reviewed. Expand
Homeostatic plasticity in the developing nervous system
TLDR
Evidence is discussed from a number of systems that homeostatic synaptic plasticity is crucial for processes ranging from memory storage to activity-dependent development, and how these processes maintain stable activity states in the face of destabilizing forces is discussed. Expand

TLDR
This paper presents a mathematical embodiment of bidirectional synaptic plasticity that is able to explain diverse induction protocols with a fixed set of parameters and provides the foundation for a unified theory of N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor-dependent synaptic Plasticity. Expand
AMPA Receptor Trafficking at Excitatory Synapses

This work has shown that neuronal activity controls synaptic AMPA receptor trafficking, and this dynamic process plays a key role in the synaptic plasticity that is thought to underlie aspects of learning and memory. Expand
Role of NMDA Receptor Subtypes in Governing the Direction of Hippocampal Synaptic Plasticity
TLDR
Using hippocampal slice preparations, it is shown that selectively blocking NMDARs that contain the NR2B subunit abolishes the induction of LTD but not LTP, demonstrating that distinct N MDAR subunits are critical factors that determine the polarity of synaptic plasticity. Expand
Receptor compartmentalization and trafficking at glutamate synapses: a developmental proposal
TLDR
A model of glutamatergic synaptic differentiation is proposed, in which different NMDA receptor scaffolding and signaling complexes effect the trafficking and synaptic localization of NR2A-rich and NR2B-rich receptors, leading to tangential compartmentalization of these receptors and their movement between synaptic and extrasynaptic compartments.

State-Dependent Heterogeneity in Synaptic Depression between Pyramidal Cell Pairs
TLDR
It is suggested that silent and active synapses represent distinct synaptic "states," and that once unsilenced, synapses express plasticity in a graded manner. Expand
Activity-Dependent Modulation of Synaptic AMPA Receptor Accumulation
TLDR
It is reported here that inhibition of excitatory synaptic transmission in cultured spinal neurons leads to an increase in mEPSC amplitudes, accompanied by an equivalent increase in the accumulation of AMPA receptors at synapses, suggesting that synaptic activity modulates the size of the mEpsC by regulating the turnover of postsynaptic AmPA receptors.

Subunit-Specific NMDA Receptor Trafficking to Synapses
TLDR
Surprisingly, spontaneously released transmitter acting on synapticNMDA-Rs is sufficient for replacement and reduces NMDA-R responses; as with AMPA-Rs, synaptic trafficking of NMDA -Rs is tightly regulated and has subunit-specific rules with functionally important consequences. Expand
