the temporal enhancement of synaptic transmission between two neurons, or synapses. Neurons in hippocampal tissues have been reported to show the most promising potential for long-term potentiation.

LONG-TERM POTENTIATION (LTP): "LTP occurs as a result of stimulating a neuron minimally but over a prolonged period of time."
