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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A unified model of NMDA receptor-dependent bidirectional synaptic plasticity

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.

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.
