2–6: “Potentiation in the striatum depends not only on strong pre- and postsynaptic activation … reward prediction … modify behavior” [27]
1; 7–8: “Older people,… might be less likely to harbor narcissistic traits. This again suggests that narcissism should decrease with age” [19]
9–12: “Emotion then facilitates behavior that is in line with our concerns” [41]
14–21:“From speech, perception, and interpersonal interactions with his primary caregivers, he had to protect himself cognitive processes, both conscious and non-conscious” [8]

for i = Wj: j = 1,…,12
“Metaplasticity refers to neural changes that are induced by activity at one point in time and that persist and affect subsequently induced LTP or LTD” [44]
