Synaptic Plasticity and Transsynaptic Signaling
by Patric K. Stanton

Synaptic Plasticity and Transsynaptic Signaling focuses on one component of synaptic plasticity called transsynaptic signaling, or communication of synapses during their formation.

This volume includes chapters that consider the importance of neuromodulatory transmitters such as norepinephrine, histamine and acetylcholine in regulating long-term activity-dependent synaptic plasticity, and how these modulators regulate memory formation.
