Researchers discovered a new group of nerve cells that regulate processes of learning and memory. These cells act as gatekeepers and carry a receptor for nicotine, which can help explain our ability to remember and sort information. The newly discovered gatekeeper nerve cells, also called OLM-alpha2 cells, provide an explanation to how the flow of information is controlled in the hippocampus.
A new study offers evidence of source memory in nonhuman animals.
CA2, a small region of the hippocampus, is essential for social learning, a new study reports.
A new study could provide insight into memory problems seen in neurodegenerative diseases in which gamma waves are disturbed.
Researchers discover a functional link between an area of the brain associated with taste memory and an area associated with encoding the time and place the memory occurred.
A new study sheds light into a possible cause of learning difficulties in Down syndrome.
According to a new study, two parts of the hippocampus work together to identify is a stimulus is novel or familiar.
A discovery about pyramidal neurons in the CA3 area of the hippocampus could help researchers develop new treatments for Alzheimer's disease and other age related memory loss problems.
Researchers identify a neural circuit that connects the hippocampus and the entorhinal cortex, which is responsible for encoding episodic memory.
