Activity-dependent regulation of synaptic strength and neuronal excitability in central auditory pathways

Walmsley, Bruce; Berntson Eichner, Amy; Leao, Richardson; Fyffe, Robert E W

Description

Neural activity plays an important role in regulating synaptic strength and neuronal membrane properties. Attempts to establish guiding rules for activity-dependent neuronal changes have led to such concepts as homeostasis of cellular activity and Hebbian reinforcement of synaptic strength. However, it is clear that there are diverse effects resulting from activity changes, and that these changes depend on the experimental preparation, and the developmental stage of the neural circuits under...[Show more]
