LTP is neither a memory trace nor an ultimate mechanism for its formation: The beginning of the end of the synaptic theory of neural memory

  • Lev P. Latash (a1)
Abstract

The problem of neural memory storage is discussed, based on the results of studies of memory impairment after hippocampal lesions, motor learning, and electrophysiological research on “spinal memory.” I support Shors & Matzel's major statements. The absence of reliable evidence on the LTP memory storage function and other data cast doubt on the synaptic theory of memory.
