Abstract
In this study, the necessary conditions, including those related to behavior, for lasting modifications to occur in correlated
activity (`functional plasticity') were examined in the behaving monkey. Previously, in-vitro studies of neuronal plasticity yielded
important information about possible mechanisms of synaptic plasticity, but could not be used to test their functionality in the
intact, behaving brain. In-vivo studies usually focused on analysis of the responsiveness of single cells, but did not examine
