Pathological synaptic plasticity in the striatum: implications for Parkinson's disease.

Abstract

Repetitive stimulation of the corticostriatal pathway can cause either a long-lasting increase, or an enduring decrease in synaptic strength, respectively referred to as long-term potentiation (LTP), and long-term depression (LTD), both requiring a complex sequence of biochemical events. Once established, LTP can be reversed to control levels by a low… (More)
