I believe it refers to changes in the ability of neurons to undergo the changes in their firing properties typical of synaptic plasticity. It's basically "plasticity of synaptic plasticity"

 metaplasticity entails a change in the physiological or biochemical state of neurons or synapses that alters their ability to generate synaptic plasticity.

 

Actually, you should check out this great lecture on presynaptic plasticity: http://hstalks.com/m...780&r=798&c=252
