Stochastic simulation of a set of molecular reactions that implement late long-term potentiation (L-LTP). The model is able to account for a wide range of empirical results, including induction and maintenance of late-phase LTP, cellular memory reconsolidation and the effects of different pharmaceutical interventions.
