NR2B-subunit dependent facilitation of long-term potentiation in primary visual cortex following visual discrimination training of adult rats.

Long-term potentiation (LTP) is an important mechanism thought to mediate changes in synaptic connectivity following various types of experience. We examined the effects of visual discrimination training on LTP in the mature, rodent thalamocortical visual system. Adult rats underwent visual discrimination training in a modified Morris Water Maze containing… (More)
