As far as I know that is wrong. I don't know of any experimental
evidence that a synapse thorough LTP can encode more than one bit of
information, nor do I know of any reasonable explanation other than LTP
about how a synapse can encod information. If you have news that
invalidates any of the above I would very much like to hear about it.
