Information processing in the central nervous system is primarily mediated through synaptic connections between neurons. This connectivity in turn defines how large ensembles of neurons may coordinate network output to execute complex sensory and motor functions including learning and memory. The synaptic connectivity between any given pair of neurons is not hard-wired; rather it exhibits a high degree of plasticity, which in turn forms the basis for learning and memory. While there has been… CONTINUE READING
