Much empirical evidence and numerous theoretical models point to modification of synaptic efficacy as a mechanism for memory formation. To evaluate theoretical models, it is necessary to obtain quantitative experimental data relating learning to experimentally induced synaptic efficacy changes (such as long-term potentiation, LTP). An important problem in this type of experiment is how to quantify the LTP induced by a given stimulation protocol. Of relevance is the informally well-known… CONTINUE READING
