Study identifies a novel neural circuit that regulates spatial learning and memory in the brain's hippocampal formation.
Study reveals how the CA2 region of the hippocampus plays a key role in long-term memory consolidation.
Neurons in the primary olfactory cortex play a role in encoding spatial maps, a new study reports.
Memory editing occurs on the fly, leaving the brain susceptible to creating memories that may not be accurate.
Long-term memory consolidation and short-term memory processes that occur during sleep do so at a cost to one another.
Deficits in the dentate gyrus function that causes memory problems may be associated with epileptic seizures a new study reports. The abnormal activity leads to over-extinction, spurring on seizures.
Researchers have identified the characteristics of over 100 memory-sensitive neurons that play a key role in how memories are recalled in the brain.
Hippocampal HCN channels are more highly expressed in people with major depressive disorder. Antidepressants that increase cAMP signaling interfere with TRIP8b's ability to bind to HCN channels, helping to restore cognitive ability in those with MDD.
Walking exercise on a treadmill improves cognitive abilities, including learning and memory, and preserves hippocampal volume in people with relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis.
Inadequate sleep can harm brain organization in early adolescence, researchers report. The disorganization can have an impact on cognitive processes, including attention, memory, emotional regulation, and controlling behaviors.
While adults build integrated memories based on existing inferences, children can separate memories they later compare to make inferences as they go.
A new neuro-optics technique can manipulate memory consolidation in mouse models by hindering long-term potentiation. Researchers say eliminating local LTP in the hippocampus erased memories. The method could be used to isolate memory formation at the cellular level.
