Abstract: Neural mechanism in learning and memory is an important research field for cognitive science. It is necessary to select different kinds of animal for different purposes in studying learning and memory. LTP represents a long-lasting enhancement of synaptic function , is a kind of primary model for synaptic plasticity that underlies learning and memory. Reports on mechanism of LTP mainly came from mammalian before. Birds are special species in animal evolution and have characteristic capabilities in learning and memory. With behavior model of birds, the understanding of LTP and relationship between learning and memory and LTP were carried on.

Key words: birds, learning and memory, LTP
