Long term potentiation (LTP) is a process that helps strengthen synapses based on recent activity. The LTP inducing synapses produce an increase in signal transmission between two neurons which is long-lasting. The establishment period takes a short time of hours while the maintenance period is very persistent since it takes several days.

Normal synapse is a process in which a neuron passes electrical or chemical signals to another neuron. It is a connection/junction between two nerve cells. A nerve signal cannot continue to the next cell. Normal synapses do not contribute to synaptic transmission.
