Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In neuroscience, synaptic scaling is a form of homeostatic plasticity that allows single neurons to regulate their overall action potential firing rate. Like many other physiological systems, neural electrochemical activity is subject to homeostasis. Where Hebbian Plasticity mechanisms modify neural synaptic connections selectively, synaptic scaling works in unison with other homeostatic plasticity mechanisms to normalize all neural synaptic connections . Synaptic scaling is a post-synaptic homeostatic plasticity mechanism that takes place with changes in the quantity of AMPA receptors at a post-synaptic terminal of a neuron.show more
