Researchers identify a neural circuit that connects the hippocampus and the entorhinal cortex, which is responsible for encoding episodic memory.
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.
Harvard researchers report social recognization is regulated by oxytocin sensitive neurons in a region of the hippocampus.
Researchers were able to dampen hyperexcitability associated with seizure disorders in rodent models by inducing biochemical alterations with glucosamine, a dietary supplement.
Researchers combine functional connectivity analysis and network modeling to investigate synaptic mechanisms of pattern completion in hippocampal CA3 network.
CA2, a small region of the hippocampus, is essential for social learning, a new study reports.
Participating in exercise improved synaptic pruning in mouse models of autism. The study also found microglia dependant synaptic pruning is impaired by maternal inflammation, which has been previously connected to the development of ASD.
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.
