According to Barth, scientists knew that logically, after an initial learning or training experience, this change would mean in receptor function and resulting synapse deterioration, cease that learning would a region of theith continued stimulation neural processes might even degrade – but experience shows that wasn ‘t the case. – We know intuitively that the more we practice something, the better we can get, so it was a bit after the NMDA receptors switched function synapse synapses continue helping happened, said Barth, an assistant professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Mellon College of Science..
Now neuroscientists from Carnegie Mellon University and the Max Planck Institute have the mechanism that detects this apparent paradox dissolves. The results will be in the fourth January issue of Science published.. The mechanism further explains how brain synapses strengthen in response to new experiences. Previous research by Carnegie Mellon researcher and lead author of the study Alison Barth has shown that it. Connection between synaptic plasticity and learning and memory changes or learning.
