Plasticity

 
A single synapse can alter its response to a given level of stimulus over time. Some things that may alter a synapse's response to a given level of stimulus include, activity on its own input (habituation and sensitization, or homoplasticity), activity on other synapses on its neuron (associative learning), chemical changes in the immediate area of the synapse, Chemical changes in the nutrient supply to the neuron (hormonal), etc.
