Long-term potentiation articles from across Nature Portfolio

Long-term potentiation (LTP ) is the biological process by which certain types of synaptic stimulation – such as prolonged high frequency input – result in a long-lasting increase in the strength of synaptic transmission. It is thought that the mechanisms underlying LTP, together with those underlying long-term depression, may contribute to synaptic plasticity during learning.
