New findings back up recent hippocampal research in rodents, providing evidence of a common hippocampal neural mechanism representing temporal information in episodic memory.
Researchers report adolescent rats exposed to high fructose corn syrup in their diets were more prone to experience symptoms associated with bipolar disorder.
Study reveals the hippocampus may overlay existing mental maps with information about reward and hazard derived from food found in specific locations.
A new mouse study reveals a small cluster of interneurons in the hippocampus help the brain remember the places that matter the most. The findings could have implications for future studies of psychiatric disorders.
Researchers have identified a new type of depression. The findings may help explain why some people are resistant to current treatments for depressive disorders. The study reports on how a specific protein, RGS8, plays a role in depressive behaviors.
Researchers have identified a novel role the RGS14 protein plays in limiting synaptic plasticity.
Columbia University researchers reveal targeting a specific serotonin receptor can help to boost memory formation. The study reports targeting 5-HT4 receptors could help improve cognitive impairment.
There is new hope for people suffering from memory related problems. Researchers have successfully implanted a neuroprosthetic system into the brains of epilepsy patients that uses the person's own memory patterns to enhance memory encoding and recall.
