Provides an overview on how pre- and postsynaptic processes are complemented by activity-induced changes of the properties of neurons not specific to their synapses, e.g. modifications of the membrane conductance.

Quote: "Areas with more advanced functions – integrating information from the senses, reasoning and other ‘executive’ functions (e.g. prefrontal cortex) – matured last, in late adolescence. This sequence also provided evidence that phylogenetically older cortical areas mature earlier than the more recently evolved higher-order association cortices, which integrate information from earlier maturing cortex."
