The Role of Summation in Long-Term Potentiation

Previous Previous Next Next
Description
If axons are stimulated rapidly, the EPSPs produced by the terminal buttons will summate, and the postsynaptic membrane will depolarize enough for long-term potentiation to occur. If axons are stimulated slowly, the EPSPs will not summate, and long-term potentiation will not occur.
