We have used the gill and siphon withdrawal reflex of Aplysia to study the morphological basis of the persistent synaptic plasticity that underlies long-term sensitization. One critical locus for storage of the memory for sensitization is the set of monosynaptic connections between identified siphon sensory neurons and gill and siphon motor neurons. To complement previous morphological studies of the presynaptic terminals of identified sensory neurons, we examined the effects of long-term… CONTINUE READING
