    Advances in Synaptic Plasticity

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

    This book, a follow-up to the editors' Synaptic Plasticity (MIT Press,1993), reports on the most recent trends in the field. The levels of analysis range from molecular to cellular and network, the unifying theme being the nature of the relationships between synaptic plasticity and information processing and storage.

    Many neurons exhibit plasticity; that is, they can change structurally or functionally, often in a lasting way. Plasticity is evident in such diverse phenomena as learning and memory, brain development, drug tolerance, sprouting of axon terminals after a brain lesion, and various cellular forms of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity such as long-term potentiation and long-term depression. This book, a follow-up to the editors' Synaptic Plasticity (MIT Press, 1993), reports on the most recent trends in the field. The levels of analysis range from molecular to cellular and network, the unifying theme being the nature of the relationships between synaptic plasticity and information processing and storage.

    Long-Term Potentiation, Volume 3

    Michel Baudry and Joel L. Davis

    This is the third volume in a series of books devoted to the mechanisms and functional significance of two forms of synaptic plasticity, Long-Term Potentiation (LTP) and Long-Term Depression (LTD), which are widely assumed to play critical roles in information processing and storage in the brain. Long-Term Potentiation offers the most recent hypotheses concerning the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying LTP and LTD, discusses the functional significance of LTP and LTD in neuronal networks, and reviews several examples of network simulations incorporating LTP- and LTD-like rules of synaptic modification. The book is organized into several sections covering different aspects of the field ranging from molecular and cellular processes to network models. The often deliberately controversial contributions are from the leading laboratories in the field and reflect contemporary multidisciplinary approaches.

    Long-Term Potentiation, Volume 2

    Michel Baudry and Joel L. Davis

    Following the successful format of the first volume on long-term potentiation—a leading candidate for the neuronal basis of learning and memory—Volume 2 brings together the most recent data and hypotheses by top neuroscientists regarding the mechanisms of this phenomenon and of long-term depression (LTD).

    Following the successful format of the first volume on long- term potentiation—a leading candidate for the neuronal basis of learning and memory—Volume 2 brings together the most recent data and hypotheses by top neuroscientists regarding the mechanisms of this phenomenon and of long-term depression (LTD). The book is divided into several sections covering different aspects of the field ranging from molecular mechanisms of plasticity to computational neurobiology. It revisits some of the major points covered in Volume 1, updating them in this fast-moving field. It also introduces several new issues that have arisen since then. Of the many possible new topics that could have been added, the editors have focused on retrograde messengers and the mechanisms and functions of LTP and LTD because they are the subject of much interest, research, and controversy. The section on retrograde messengers deals primarily with nitric oxide.

    Molecular, Cellular, and Functional Aspects

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

    An up-to-date overview of the current status of research on the full scope of synaptic plasticity, including synaptic remodeling in response to damage, long-term depression and long-term potentiation, and learning and memory.

    Synaptic Plasticity presents an up-to-date overview of the current status of research on the full scope of synaptic plasticity, including synaptic remodeling in response to damage, long-term depression and long-term potentiation, and learning and memory. The contributions are written by leading experts in the field and cover approaches from biochemical, anatomical, physiological, behavioral, and computational levels. They offer hypotheses concerning the molecular and cellular mechanisms that are responsible for the various manifestations of synaptic plasticity and propose models explaining how these cellular events can be linked to the functional and behavioral expressions of these adaptive principles.

    A Debate of Current Issues

    Michel Baudry and Joel L. Davis

    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.
