Synaptic Plasticity Review
Check out our new mini-review on synaptic plasticity - including types and mechanisms of short-term and long-term synaptic plasticity, plus pharmacological manipulation, useful tables, diagrams and more.
Synaptic Plasticity is a huge and complex research area so we thought it would be helpful to prepare a handy guide on the subject. This review is intended to provide an overview of the types and mechanisms of synaptic plasticity, to help those new to the field, or those looking for a refresher. Topics covered by this review include:
- Synaptic function
- Paired-pulse facilitation and depression
- Post-tetanic potentiation
- Early and late long-term potentiation
- Long-term depression
