Second, the researchers also looked at long-term potentiation (LTP), a process that measures how long the neurons in the brain are affected by a brief electrical stimulation.

Using cell recordings carried out on isolated brain sections, they analysed the long-term potentiation in the hippocampus.
It does this by either increasing or decreasing the strength (receptor density) - becoming stronger with long-term potentiation (LTP) and becoming weaker with long-term depression (LTD).
Long-term potentiation (LTP) is a biochemical process by which the efficiency of a synapse is increased, facilitating the transmission of signals from one neuron to another.
6-9) The mechanism of forced normalisation is still not fully understood, although the kindling phenomenon, the phenomenon of long-term potentiation and the channel disorder paradigm have all been proposed as possible explanations.
Indeed, activation of leptin receptors enhances N-methyl-d-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor function and facilitates the induction of hippocampal long-term potentiation (LTP) (1).
Long-term potentiation (LTP) and cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) responsive element binding (CREB) protein activation are two aspects of long-term memory formation.
If so, this could help explain why the endogenous neurotransmitter norepinephrine (NE), which activates all AR subtypes, enhances long-term potentiation (2) and consequently learning and memory (3), while still having potent epileptic effects (1).
