There is growing interest in late-LTP and late-LTD, that is, distinct forms of functional plasticity that require somatic functions such as protein synthesis in addition to the transient synaptic processes that are required for short lasting forms. Interestingly, to date only these forms of lasting plastic events could be detected in healthy, freely moving animals and thus, they are considered as physiological cellular models of learning and memory formation. Late-LTP and -LTD are characterized… CONTINUE READING
