Long-lasting effects on synaptic efficacies are associated with the sustained increase in concentration of specific proteins like PKM?. Assuming that the long-term maintenance of synaptic plasticity is accomplished by a molecular switch we perform simulations using the reaction-diffusion package in NEURON and analytical calculations to determine the limits of synapse specificity during maintenance.
