LTP and LTD, the long-term potentiation and depression of excitatory synaptic transmission, are widespread phenomena expressed at possibly every excitatory synapse in the mammalian brain. It is now clear that "LTP" and "LTD" are not unitary phenomena. Their mechanisms vary depending on the synapses and circuits in which they operate. Here we review those forms of LTP and LTD for which mechanisms have been most firmly established. Examples are provided that show how these mechanisms can… Expand
Synaptic plasticity in the subiculum
TLDR
The observation that the underlying mechanisms of LTP and LTD at CA1-subiculum synapses correlate with the discharge properties of subicular pyramidal cell reveals a novel and intriguing mechanism of cell-specific consolidation of hippocampal output. Expand
LTP forms 1, 2 and 3: different mechanisms for the ‘long’ in long-term potentiation

TLDR
This review aims to reinvigorate and extend the concept of long-term potentiation as a useful framework to disentangle the mechanisms of LTP. Expand
Long-Term Potentiation and Long-Term Depression in Experience-Dependent Plasticity
The experimental phenomena of long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD) have been widely hypothesized to underlie numerous forms of experience-dependent plasticity in the brain,Expand
Dissecting the Components of Long-Term Potentiation
TLDR
Some recent advances made possible by the development of new imaging tools have demonstrated that LTP is compound in nature and consists of both presynaptic and postsynaptic components. Expand
Mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and recognition memory in the perirhinal cortex.
TLDR
There is strong evidence that synaptic plastic mechanisms are necessary for the information processing and storage that underlies object recognition memory. Expand
Long-Term Depression: Cerebellum
TLDR
LTD synergistically functions with long-term potentiation (LTP) to generate a balanced, stable memory mechanism and may lead to a loss of synapses, or to preservation as silent synapses that have recently been found to prevail in the cerebellar cortex. Expand
LTP of GABAergic synapses in the ventral tegmental area and beyond
TLDR
The recent study suggests that in vivo morphine initiates a long‐lasting alteration of GABAergic synapses in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) by blocking the mechanisms required for LTP of GABAergy synapses, which is put into the context of other examples of synaptic plasticity at GABAergicsynapses.

Long-Term Potentiation (LTP): Mossy Fiber cAMP-Dependent Presynaptic LTP
Mossy fiber synapses in the hippocampus are formed by the axons of the granule cells and their postsynaptic targets in the hilar and CA3 regions of the hippocampus. The excitatory synapses formedExpand
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
Chapter 18 – Synaptic plasticity
TLDR
This chapter examines the mechanisms underlying plasticity in adult synapses and selected three examples, the NMDA receptor-dependent LTP, the metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR)-dependent LTD in the cerebellum and the spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP). Expand

Synaptic plasticity: LTP and LTD
TLDR
A new form of synaptic plasticity, homosynaptic long-term depression (LTD) has also recently been documented, which, like LTP, requires Ca2+ entry through the NMDA receptor, and current work suggests that this LTD is a reversal ofLTP, and that the mechanisms of LTP and LTD may converge at the level of specific phosphoproteins.

TLDR
The studies suggest that in vivo drugs of abuse such as cocaine cause long-lasting changes at excitatory synapses in the NAc and VTA owing to activation of the mechanisms that underlie LTP and LTD in these structures. Expand

TLDR
A hypothesis will be examined that long-term potentiation in hippocampus and neocortex may subserve information storage in the central nervous system. Expand
Postsynaptic induction and presynaptic expression of hippocampal long-term depression.
TLDR
The induction of LTD in hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons in neonatal rats is shown to depend on postsynaptic calcium ion entry through L-type voltage-gated calcium channels paired with the activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors, suggesting that LTD is likely to require the production of a retrograde messenger.

Contrasting properties of two forms of long-term potentiation in the hippocampus
TLDR
The two forms of LTP are compared and it is argued that the balance of evidence favours a postsynaptic locus for NMDA-receptor-dependent LTP. Expand
Synaptic plasticity
TLDR
The hippocampus has been identified as a brain region concerned with encoding memories and is typically, but not exclusively, used to study LTP/LTD; the standard preparation for studies of cellular mechanisms of plasticity is slices of hippocampus. Expand
Presynaptic kainate receptors impart an associative property to hippocampal mossy fiber long-term potentiation
TLDR
Using receptor antagonists, as well as receptor knockout mice, it is found that presynaptic kainate receptors facilitate the induction of mossy fiber long-term potentiation (LTP), although they are not required for this form of LTP. Expand
A synaptic model of memory: long-term potentiation in the hippocampus
TLDR
The best understood form of long-term potentiation is induced by the activation of the N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor complex, which allows electrical events at the postsynaptic membrane to be transduced into chemical signals which, in turn, are thought to activate both pre- and post Synaptic mechanisms to generate a persistent increase in synaptic strength.
