Scientific meeting: Long-term potentiation – 50 years on

External Event - 20th to 21st Nov 2023

On 20 – 21 November 2023, Professor Cliff Abraham, Professor Tim Bliss FRS, Professor Graham Collingridge CBE FRS, and Professor Richard Morris CBE FRS will lead a scientific discussion meeting at the Royal Society in London, on the topic of long-term potentiation (LTP) and brain processes.

The study of long-term potentiation (LTP), a form of synaptic plasticity first described in detail 50 years ago by Bliss and Lomo, has provided major insights into a huge range of brain physiological and pathophysiological processes.

This meeting will cover the basic molecular mechanisms of LTP, its role in learning and memory, with a particular focus on engrams, and its dysregulation in brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, depression and chronic pain.

There will be a poster session on Monday 20 November. Attendees can apply to present a poster.

This meeting is free to attend and is intended for researchers in relevant fields. Advance registration is essential. In-person and online attendance is available.

More information about the speakers, programme and how to register for this meeting can be found on the Royal Society website.
