Researchers have mapped cholinergic neurons, the first type of cells to degenerate in people with Alzheimer's disease.
Mathematical theories called global similarity models appear to correctly explain processing in the medial temporal lobe, an area of the brain associated with long term memory.
Sleep after learning encourages growth of dendritic spines, a new study reports.
Researchers use EEG to capture electrical oscillations as a remembered object is encoded and held in memory.
NCL neurons allow crows to remember things in the short term, a new study reports.
Using optogenetics, researchers have been able to inactivate and then reactivate memory in genetically engineered rats.
Researchers detect brief bursts of neural activity oscillating in two specific areas of a mouse brain just before the animal makes a correct choice, either when planning an action or correcting a mistake.
Fingolimod, a drug widely used to treat multiple sclerosis, has been found to eliminate some adverse or traumatic memories, a new study reports.
Researchers discover so-called sticky synapses can impair new learning by excessively hard wiring old memories.
Researchers create a new theoretical model to understand how cells monitor and self regulate their properties.
Keywords in our word networks hold together groups of words in our memory, a new study suggests.
Human reinforcement learning was modified by deep brain stimulation of substantia nigra dopamine containing neurons.
Researchers examine how well study participants perform spatial cognitive tasks while walking and standing still.
Researchers discover a gene already associated with longevity also improves memory and learning. The findings could help develop new treatments for cognitive decline.
Researchers report the protein FABP5, usually associated with diseases such as cancer and psoriasis, enhances cognitive function.
