neuronal plasticity

neuronal plasticity

Neurophysiology
1. The ability of neurons to stabilize or alter synapses.
2. The malleability of cortical representations of sensory and motor innervation, which has a range of 10-14 mm in the somatosensory cortex in animal models that have undergone long-term loss of sensory nerves in the forelimbs. See Long-term potentiation, Synaptic plasticity.
