How are nerve synapses affected by learning?

1 Answer

Answer:

The strength of synapses is necessary for a number of different learning mechanisms in computational neuroscience, neural networks, biophysics etc.

Explanation:

  1. In the neuroscience, the synaptic plasticity is the ability of synapses to strengthen or weaken over time.
  2. The number of ion channels on the post-synaptic membrane affects the strength of the synapse.
  3. The strength of synapses is necessary for a number of different learning mechanisms in computational neuroscience, neural networks, biophysics etc.
