Long-term potentiation (LTP) of synaptic transmission is a primary experimental model of memory formation in neuronal circuits. Because of the intellectual appeal and scientific fecundity of the field, it is perhaps unsurprising that the literature on LTP contains many complex and often contradictory findings. Recognition that LTP is not a unitary phenomenon and mechanisms can differ between brain regions has resolved some controversy. However, further categorization can be made of… CONTINUE READING
