Long term time-lapse imaging reveals that individual synapses undergo significant structural remodeling not only when driven by activity, but also when network activity is absent, raising questions about how reliably individual synapses maintain connections. 
Synaptic Tenacity or Lack Thereof: Spontaneous Remodeling of Synapses
TLDR
Experimental results on spontaneous synaptic remodeling are reviewed, its relative contributions to totalaptic remodeling, its statistical characteristics, and its physiological importance are addressed. Expand
Hebb and the art of spine remodeling
  • N. Ziv
  • Biology, Medicine
  • F1000 biology reports

TLDR
Fascinating data from recent studies on the remodeling of postsynaptic structures known as dendritic spines indicates that such relationships might be more complex than initially expected. Expand
Computational Roles of Intrinsic Synaptic Dynamics
TLDR
The possibility for neuronal networks to sustain stable performance in their presence is presented and it is hypothesized that intrinsic dynamics could be more than mere noise to withstand, but they may improve information processing in the brain. Expand
Live imaging of inhibitory axons: Synapse formation as a dynamic trial-and-error process
  • C. Wierenga
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Brain Research Bulletin
  • 2017
TLDR
In this review, recent live imaging studies that demonstrate that synapses are highly dynamic structures and the ongoing changes of presynaptic boutons within axons emphasize the stochastic aspect of inhibitory synapse formation and paint a picture of a dynamic trial-and-error process. Expand
Long-term Relationships between Cholinergic Tone, Synchronous Bursting and Synaptic Remodeling
TLDR
It is shown that cholinergic tone can strongly affect synaptic remodeling and synchronous bursting activity, but do not support a strict coupling between the two, and the reemergence of synchronous Burst indicates that the capacity of cholinergy neuromodulation to indefinitely suppress synchronous burst might be inherently limited. Expand
Intrinsic volatility of synaptic connections — a challenge to the synaptic trace theory of memory
TLDR
Recent experimental evidence that link the initial formation of a memory with changes in the pattern of connectivity, but also evidence that synaptic connections are considerably volatile even in the absence of learning are reviewed. Expand
Multicontact Co-operativity in Spike-Timing–Dependent Structural Plasticity Stabilizes Networks
TLDR
A combined model of structural and spike-timing–dependent plasticity that explains the multicontact configuration of synapses in adult neocortical networks under steady-state and lesion-induced conditions and finds that co-operation of multiple synaptic contacts is crucial for stable, long-term synaptic memories. Expand
Remodeling and Tenacity of Inhibitory Synapses: Relationships with Network Activity and Neighboring Excitatory Synapses
TLDR
These findings point to quantitative differences in spontaneous remodeling dynamics of inhibitory and excitatory synapses but also reveal deep qualitative similarities in the processes that control their sizes and govern their remodelling dynamics. Expand
Unraveling Mechanisms of Homeostatic Synaptic Plasticity
TLDR
The current understanding of cellular and molecular mechanisms of homeostatic synaptic plasticity is reviewed, and neurons may also rapidly tune the efficacy of individual synapses on demand. Expand
A Dynamic Connectome Supports the Emergence of Stable Computational Function of Neural Circuits through Reward-Based Learning
TLDR
It is shown that spontaneous synapse-autonomous processes, in combination with reward signals such as dopamine, can explain the capability of networks of neurons in the brain to configure themselves for specific computational tasks, and to compensate automatically for later changes in the network or task.

Cortical rewiring and information storage
TLDR
Structural plasticity in the adult brain suggests that memory could also depend on learning-induced changes in the cortical ‘wiring diagram’, and that wiring plasticity could provide a substantial boost in storage capacity. Expand
