Few phenomena in neuroscience have attracted as much attention as long-term potentiation (LTP) of synaptic transmission in the mammalian cortex (Bliss and Collingridge, 1993). This is explained by the probable involvement of LTP both in the formation and storage of memories and in neuronal injury. Much of the interest in LTP also centers around a long-running debate about the nature of the enhancement in synaptic transmission: does LTP involve an increase in transmitter release or an enhanced… CONTINUE READING
