Long-term plasticity of synaptic transmission is assumed to underlie the formation of long-term memory. Although the cellular mechanisms underlying short-term plasticity have been analyzed in detail, the mechanisms underlying the transformation from short-term to long-term plasticity remain largely unrevealed. We propose the novel long-lasting phenomenon as… CONTINUE READING
