Long-term potentiation (LTP) and kindling are strikingly similar in many respects. Both are believed to model CNS plasticity, both are induced by the localized application of brief, high-frequency trains of electrical pulses through implanted electrodes, and both result in a lasting increase in the response to a constant stimulus. In addition to these formal similarities, recent findings have indicated that the two models may share aspects of an underlying neural mechanism, and this has led to… CONTINUE READING
