Summary

The twenty-five contributions in this pivotal volume cover the most recent discoveries and debates, providing a comprehensive update on LTP for those who work in the field of learning and memory and a solid introduction to the properties, mechanisms, and functions of LTP for investigators in other areas of brain research.

Controversy is a hallmark of an evolving field. Since its discovery by neuroscientists in 1972, long-term potentiation (LTP) of synaptic transmission has been a prime candidate for a cellular explanation of memory and an exciting source of controversies that run from the molecular to the behavioral level. The twenty-five contributions in this pivotal volume cover the most recent discoveries and debates, providing a comprehensive update on LTP for those who work in the field of learning and memory and a solid introduction to the properties, mechanisms, and functions of LTP for investigators in other areas of brain research.
