Long-term depression (LTD) is a key concept in understanding how our brains learn and unlearn habits. Here are some clips that delve into this topic:
- "Breaking Habits" from episode #53, where I discuss the role of LTD in weakening neural connections that underlie habits.
- "Motor Skill Learning" from the Mental Training & Visualization episode, where I explain how LTD and long-term potentiation work together in motor skill learning.
- "Neural Plasticity" from the same episode, where I further discuss LTD's role in learning and the importance of sleep in this process.
These clips should provide a comprehensive understanding of LTD and its implications.
