Know about classical conditioning and instrumental conditioning Explain long term potentiation and long term depression What is the role of NMDA receptors in LTP? What is associative LTP /Hebb rule? Know the mechanism of synaptic plasticity ( role of NMDA receptors and AMPA receptors) What is the mechanism of Long term depression? How do dendritic spines affect synaptic connections between neurons? What is the putative role of Nitric oxide synthase? / How does LTP influence presynaptic connections? What are the neural pathways for perceptual learning, learning visual stimuli and short
