I've only just started reading this article, so I don't know how good it's 
going to be, but you may want to look at Shors and Matzel 1997, Long-term 
potentiation: What's learning got to do with it?  Behavioral and Brain Sciences 
20(4):597-655.  For those of you not familiar with this journal, it's actually 
kind of cool.  They start with an article on a controversial topic, then send 
it out to experts in the field for comments, then publish the article along 
with all the commentaries, so you get exposed to several sides of the debate.  
This may be just what you're looking for.
