Given that Long Term Potentiation (LTP) is the process of improving synaptic efficacy.
Given that within a lab, the strength and repetition of stimulus on the brain can be linked with the priming of the synapses, and improving efficacy, with LTP.
This question combines the following ideas:
Given what we know at this point, can a link be established between intensity and repetition of brain stimulations and physical changes to the brain?
Would it be possible to quantify a range of "experiences", perhaps there could be a scale upon which experiences can be placed with propensity to create changes within the brain.
Permitting a bit of reductionist thinking for a moment, we can theorize that all thought, personality and human behaviour is somehow connected to the underlying biology. So I would suggest that any experience (or series of experiences) that has a long term effect on synaptic efficacy could be linked with changes in behaviour and/or personality (or vice versa). This would be a useful aide in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Within the context of this proposition, I am asking can underlying cellular changes be categorised and ranked as to the effectiveness as stimulators for personality, behavioural, or cognitive changes (whether such changes are beneficial or otherwise), using a neurological and behavioural approach.
