Retrieval of both old and recent memories are supported by distinct brain networks, a new study reports.
Ventral CA1 neurons in the hippocampus store memories of acquaintances, a new study reports.
UCLA researchers have for the first time measured the activity of a brain region known to be involved in learning, memory and Alzheimer's disease during sleep. They discovered that the entorhinal cortex behaves as if it's remembering something, even under anesthesia, a finding that counters conventional theories about memory consolidation during sleep.
Pyramidal cells in the CA2 region of the hippocampus are responsible for storing critical timing information.
A new neuroimaging study reveals sex-based differences in the development of the hippocampus and amygdala. The findings may shed light on sex-based differences in the emergence of mental health disorders the occur during adolescence and early adulthood.
Hippocampal neurons involved in Pavlovian learning shift their behavior and become more synchronized when a memory is being formed. The findings shed new light on the neurobiological mechanisms of memory and learning.
A new study implicated interneurons and pyramidal cells in the ability of a seizure to spread through the brain.
Researchers report episodic memory function becomes disrupted when neural pathways that allow communication between the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex are deactivated.
A lack of adaptability in hippocampal place cells could be key to memory deficits in schizophrenia, researchers report.
