Research on LTP and LTD, and their possible functions is now extending to include diverse aspects of memory encoding and consolidation, including areas of emotional learning in brain structures beyond the hippocampus. There is also growing interest in how dysfunction of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity is a likely contributor to a variety of neurological and psychiatric diseases.

The aim of this Brain Conference is to bring together world experts to discuss the major issues in the field.
