Caption: Illustration of the transmission of information with long-term potentiation. The activation of neurons is more efficient, the number of neurotransmitters in the ion channels is higher. A larger number of sodium ions enter the postsynaptic neuron, increasing the speed and intensity of the electrical signal transmission. This also allows the passage of calcium ions (red), increasing the intensity of the signal.
