would enable them to coopt proteins destined for other The dendrites of a typical neuron in the central nervous late LTP synaptic sites. To test this idea, a “two-pathsystem bear at least 1000 postsynaptic specializations way” experimental design was employed in which two indicating that in principal the individual neuron can independent sets of presynaptic afferents that converge process and store many bits of information. Electroon a common set of postsynaptic neurons were alterphysiological… CONTINUE READING
