Term Detail
GO term:regulation of synaptic plasticity
GO id:GO:0048167
Definition:A process that modulates synaptic plasticity, the ability of synapses to change as circumstances require. They may alter function, such as increasing or decreasing their sensitivity, or they may increase or decrease in actual numbers.
CommentsNote that the syntax of the definition of the this term is different from the usual regulation syntax because it describes regulation of a trait rather than regulation of a process.
Number of paths to term: 13
