If habituation occurs by reduction of the postsynaptic response at a single synapse, it could logically be a consequence of either pre- or postsynaptic processes, or of course a combination of both.
This question of pre- versus postsynaptic plasticity has been a major source of polemic in recent years, but with most theoreticians favouring the postsynaptic side as the main site of plasticity.
This effect, essentially an increase in the efficacy of transmission between pre- and postsynaptic cells, was termed potentiation.
LTP, thus moving the focus of interest about mechanism from the pre- to the postsynaptic side.
As a result the models for the mechanism of LTP had to be revised to include an effect mediated through the phosphorylation of specific pre- and postsynaptic membrane proteins.
Although the debate over whether the pre- or the postsynaptic changes are the most important is still raging as I write, it is likely to turn out, as is sometimes but not always the case in science, that both camps are more or less right.
All that I know so far - at least, all that is worth telling here - is that there are a number of different glycoproteins of a variety of molecular weights, on both pre- and postsynaptic sides of the membrane, involved in the response to training on the bead.
