Long-term potentiation has been involved in certain forms of learning and memory. In the CA1 region of the hippocampus, long-term potentiation (LTP) is triggered postsinaptically and, at least in part, it expression depends on presynaptic mechanisms. Therefore, a retrograde messenger that is released from the postsynaptic dendrite and diffuses back across the synapse to increase neurotransmitter release has been proposed. Several candidates including lipid mediators such as arachidonic acid and… CONTINUE READING
