Homeostatic synaptic plasticity remains an enigmatic form of synaptic plasticity.
Increasing interest on the topic has fuelled a surge of recent studies that have
identified key molecular players and the signaling pathways involved. However,
the new findings also highlight our lack of knowledge concerning some of the
basic properties of homeostatic synaptic plasticity. In this review we address
how homeostatic mechanisms balance synaptic strengths between the presynaptic and
the postsynaptic terminals and across synapses that share the same postsynaptic
neuron.
