limit cycle A type of nonlinear oscillator, such as a threshold device with
reset (cisterns that automatically flush when refilled). linkage In genetics,
an association between the expression of two gene alleles that is greater than
could be expected from random assortment. For example, two adjacent genes may
tend to move together during meiosis. long-term potentiation (LTP) A sustained
(minutes to days) change in connection strength, largely synaptic, that follows
some priming events -- such as a barrage of impulses. Originally seen via
conditioning and testing in the same pathway, it has also been seen to cross
over from separate conditioning and test pathways. LTP is thought to provide the
physiological scaffolding for slowly making (during memory consolidation) the
anatomical changes that more permanently increase the synaptic strength.
