Dramatic changes occur in the primary visual cortex when mice learn to distinguish novel from familiar visual stimuli, a new study reports.
Researchers have developed a mathematical equation which explains how equilibrium is achieved by two forms of synaptic plasticity during learning.
The Pin1 enzyme plays a significant role in synaptic plasticity, a new study reports.
Researchers provide evidence that an absence of MK2/3 is linked to early signs of dementia.
Researchers report huntingtin plays a critical role in long-term memory.
A new study of brain cells from juvenile rats suggests the effects of a common anesthetic, isoflurane, on the connections between neurons are temporary.
Choice bias is a byproduct of learning from reward, a new study reports.
Researchers discover a new form of neurotransmission which influences the long term memory created by addictive drugs.
Brain wave synchronization between the striatum and prefrontal cortex appear to assist with category learning, a new study reports.
Researchers discover a gene already associated with longevity also improves memory and learning. The findings could help develop new treatments for cognitive decline.
Researchers have identified a protein complex that plays a critical, but previously unknown, role in memory and learning.
Researchers report synapses remain stable if their components grow and coordinate with one another.
