TOP 500 REVIEWERon 19 November 2007
The editors of this book, whose 29 chapters are written in the form of research papers, are the pillars of modern NeuroScience: Tim Bliss (of Bliss & Lomo fame, the pair who discovered LTP in 1973), Graham Collingridge (who first introduced the role of NMDA receptors into the equation) and Richard Morris (of the now famous Morris-maze).

There are also 6 sections that focus on the History of synaptic potentiation, its Induction, its Expression, its Persistence, its Function and finally the new directions future research should focus on. The material is covered thoroughly and any unanswered questions are clearly noted.

This is not an easy book and its format will not make it any easier to anyone lacking a solid scientific background. If interested in memory mechanisms and NeuroScience in general, I would recommend Kandel's NEUROSCIENCE & BEHAVIOR instead.

To students of synaptic plasticity though this is a very useful book - and I cannot recommend it high enough!
