Using a portable brain mapping device, researchers discover limited prefrontal cortex activity among student veterans with PTSD when asked to recall information from simple memory tasks.
Amyloid beta has been implicated in blocking endocannabinoids in the hippocampus; impairing learning and memory long before Alzheimer's plaques form in the brain.
Astrocytes can monitor and respond to near by neural activity when activated by norepinephrine.
New research suggest diversity of inhibiting neurons allows for more complex information processing.
Researchers discover a potential new drug target for Alzheimer's disease.
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.
