Neurons are the primary cells of the nervous system, and the signals that are transmitted between them are responsible for all our actions and our cognitive ability. In particular, learning and memory are believed to be associated with a process called “long-term potentiation,” which is the strengthening of connections between specific neurons via continued signal transmission through “synapses” (small gaps between neurons). Long-term potentiation can change the connection between neurons via synapses–by…
