(C) Two effects of short-term facilitation: short-term memory storage when acting by itself and marking of the specific synapse to which it is applied for subsequent capture of the proteins necessary for long-term facilitation and growth when applied in conjunction with five pulses to another set of terminals.

 

 

Note the schematic growth of synapses between the sensory the motor neurons at the bottom of the diagram.
