A new study published in Neuron challenges the idea that astrocytes across the brain are largely identical. Researchers found astrocytes in the hippocampus and striatum have differences that affect how they function and interact with neurons. Striatal astrocytes also have different genes turned on that hippocampal astrocytes, the study reports.
A new study reports the hippocampus puts events into sequence by changing the neural code in the rat brain.
Findings could lead to the development of new treatments to reduce the effects of PTSD, researchers say.
Researchers report on how sleep deprivation affects the ability to form new memories.
A new study reveals how neurons in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampal neurons work together to help guide future learning.
Researchers report episodic memory function becomes disrupted when neural pathways that allow communication between the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex are deactivated.
Researchers have identified a possible new drug target that could help to restore memory loss and improve longevity in Alzheimer's disease.
Ventral CA1 neurons in the hippocampus store memories of acquaintances, a new study reports.
