This is a very nice review article about LTP and how presynaptic mechanisms may be involved. It is a nice illustration that nothing is as simple as the 'textbook story'. This year I used it to supplement my understanding of LTP. Next year I plan on having my upper level undergraduates read the article before we discuss LTP. It is written at a fairly understandable level and the figures are useful for understanding.
