A newly developed artificial neural network allowed researchers to insert inhibitory circuits into the model, altering the excitatory circuits and enabling them to extend associative memory.
Researchers say homeostatic synaptic plasticity facilitates Hebbian plasticity, influencing memory formation and learning.
A new study challenges long held beliefs about how learning occurs. Researchers suggest learning occurs in dendrites that are in closer proximity to neurons, as opposed to occurring solely in synapses.
A new study reveals the brain utilizes eye movements to help recall vivid memories of past experiences.
A new study questions traditional views of how memories are formed and stored in the brain. Additionally, researchers propose a new mechanism for learning.
A study recently published in Neuron may provide new insights into how memory forms in the brain. Researchers discovered acquired olfactory memory is associated with synaptic long term potentiation, which can last for at least two weeks.
A new optogenetics study adds support for brain plasticity.
Researcher proposes a Theory of Connectivity which suggests neural cliques provide a basic framework for how neurons connect and function.
