The ability of the connections between two neurons to change in strength seems to play a role in learning and memory and a wide range of other physical and mental behavior. Researchers review recent findings, particularly in psychology and pharmacology, on such aspects as molecular mechanisms of learning and memory as revealed by research on Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II, motor learning in the cerebellum, seizure-induced synaptic plasticity, cocaine addiction, the medial pre-frontal cortex, mnemonic encoding by hippocampal formation place cells, and dopamine-dependent synaptic plasticity in the cortico-basal ganglia-thalamocortical loops as mechanisms of visual attention.
