A causal relationship between LTP and learning? Has the question been answered by genetic approaches?

  • Robert Gerlai (a1)
Abstract

Gene targeting has generated a great deal of data on the molecular mechanisms of long-term potentiation and its potential role in learning and memory. However, the interpretation of some results has been questioned. Compensatory mechanisms and the contribution of genetic background may make it difficult to unequivocally prove the existence of a causal (genetic) link between LTP and learning.
