Biophysical, biochemical, and morphological studies have implicated sensory neurons as key sites of plasticity in the formation and retention of the memory of long-term sensitization in Aplysia californica. This study examined the effects of different sensitization training protocols on the structure of sensory neurons mediating the tail-siphon withdrawal reflex. A 4 d training period produced a robust localized outgrowth in these sensory neurons observed 24 hr after the end of training. These… CONTINUE READING
