State-dependent suppression of LTP induction after learning: Relation to phasic hippocampal network events

  • Clive R. Bramham (a1)

  • Published online: 01 December 1997

This commentary argues that (1) arousal is not sufficient to induce LTP in the hippocampus, (2) learning can profoundly modulate synaptic plasticity in a state-dependent manner without affecting baseline synaptic efficacy, and (3) unilateral, synapse-specific LTP induction triggers an interhippocampal communication manifested as bilateral increases in gene expression at multiple sites in the hippocampal network.
