Caption: SYNAPSE Mechanism of LTP (long-term potentiation), after a week. Mechanism of LTP (long-term potentiation), one week later. Stage 2 (See images 11968 05 and 11970 05 for stages 1 and 3). The synapse is stimulated once again, but this time, as explained in stage 1, its efficacy is enhanced. This increased sensitivity enables the nerve impulse to travel more easily from one neuron to another. This is the learning process.
