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.
