Synaptic signaling comprises a complex molecular network. Such networks carry out diverse operations such as molecular logic, signal amplification, memory and other aspects of cellular decision-making. The synapse in particular encounters complex input patterns that have different temporal sequences. Different input patterns to the synapse are known to give rise to a range of synaptic responses, including facilitation, depression and various forms of short and long-term potentiation. In many… CONTINUE READING
