Long term memory

 

Long tem memory is recognition and remembrance of long term events and it is accompanied by structural changes in the synapses as opposed to chemical changes alone in short term memory. These changes include the following

  • Increase in number of transmitter vehicles released

  • Increase in number of presynaptic terminals

  • Increase in vehicle release sites from the secretion of neurotransmitters.

  • Changes in structures of dendritic spines which assist in the transmission of stronger impulses.
