Abstract

Long-term potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD) are arguably two of the most widely discussed cellular plasticity mechanisms for learning and memory. However, the extent to which they are required for behavioral plasticity and learning is not clear. In this issue of Neuron, Boyden et al. use mice lacking CaMKIV and Hansel et al. use mice lacking alphaCaMKII to assess the contribution of LTD to cerebellar learning.
