Researchers identify a region of the hippocampus which is sensitive to small changes in familiar context.
A new study indicates periods of rest can help boost memory performance.
The more depressed a person is, the harder it is for them to distinguish between similar items or experiences, a new study finds.
Using transgenic mice, researchers find a lack of autophagy in neurons prevents the secretion of amyloid beta and the formation of β-amyloid plaques in the brain.
Researchers have found a link between a commonly prescribed statin drug and cognitive impairment, according to a new study.
A new study reports bad experiences enhance memory formation about places.
Researchers find brain regions associated with memory shrink as adults age. This decrease in size is more pronounced in those who later develop neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's.
Researchers discover a gene essential for memory extinction. The finding could lead to new treatments for PTSD.
Researchers have identified a group of proteins essential to the formation of long-term memories.
Researchers create new and specific memories by directly manipulating brain cells in the cerebral cortex of rodents.
Researchers erase drug associated memories in mice and rats without affecting other memories.
Researchers discover a protein switch which can increase or decrease memory building, depending on the signal it detects.
Neuroscientists Plant False Memories in Mice Brains and Locate Where Brain Stores False and Authentic Memory Traces
Neuroscientists appear to have implanted memories in mice and appear to have located where the brain stores memory traces, both false and authentic.
Researchers discover a low dose of psilocybin erased conditioned fear responses in mice. They suggest the agent could be a potential treatment for PTSD and related conditions.
A new study pinpoints an effect which makes people turn their attention to something new, rather than dwell on their most recent thoughts. The findings could have implications for studying disorders such as ADHD and autism.
