Arousing the LTP and learning debate

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (4):622-623 (1997)
Abstract
Shors & Matzel provide compelling arguments against a role for hippocampal long-term potentiation (LTP) in mammalian learning and memory. As an alternative, they suggest that LTP is an arousal mechanism. I will argue that this view is not a satisfactory alternative to current conceptions of LTP function.
