During the last decades neuroscientists showed that, on one hand, different types of plasticity operate on different time scales, from short-term plasticity (seconds) to structural plasticity (weeks). On the other hand, memory acts also on different time scales from seconds (working memory) to years or even decades (long-term memory). In a recent review (Tetzlaff et al., 2012) we discuss the possible links between plasticity processes on different time scales and their relation to the different types of memories. Here, we would like to extend and intensify this discussion by inviting contributors from the experimental and theoretical fields working on different plasticity mechanisms and memory. For this Research Topic, we would welcome articles (original research, reviews, opinions, perspectives, etc.) about experimental and/or theoretical findings for plasticity on different time scales linking the discussed mechanisms to corresponding memory and learning phenomena.
