Advances in synaptic plasticity by Michel Baudry, Joel L. Davis, Richard F. Thompson

By Michel Baudry, Joel L. Davis, Richard F. Thompson

Many neurons show plasticity; that's, they could switch structurally or functionally, usually in a long-lasting manner. Plasticity is obvious in such various phenomena as studying and reminiscence, mind improvement, drug tolerance, sprouting of axon terminals after a mind lesion, and diverse mobile sorts of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity similar to long term potentiation and long term melancholy. This booklet, a follow-up to the editors' Synaptic Plasticity (MIT Press, 1993), experiences at the most modern traits within the box. the degrees of research diversity from molecular to mobile and community, the unifying subject matter being the character of the relationships among synaptic plasticity and knowledge processing and garage. individuals: Yael Amitai, Michel Baudry, Theodore W. Berger, Pierre-Alain Buchs, A. ok. Butler, Franck A. Chaillan, Gilbert A. Chauvet, Marie-Françoise Chesselet, Barry W. Connors, Taraneh Ghaffari, Jay R.
