Long-Term Potentiation: A Candidate Cellular Mechanism for Information Storage in the CNS

Chapter

Abstract

  • © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. This chapter reviews long-term potentiation (LTP) of synaptic transmission, currently one of the most widely studied and popular candidate mechanisms for a cellular phenomenon underlying long-term information storage in the nervous system. This chapter will provide an overview of the historical context, molecular dependence, and basic attributes of LTP.
