Electrical stimulation of the hippocampus activates the same receptor complexes as memory recall and learning, a new study reveals.
Research combines antibody precision with toxic oxygen burst to inactivate neural protein and temporarily abolish fear memory in mice.
A new study reports on dopamine's important role in learning how to avoid unpleasant experiences.
A new study reveals the piriform cortex is able to archive long term memory, but requires instruction from the orbiotfrontal cortex to indicate the event is to be stored as a long-term memory.
A new study advances basic understanding of the biochemical mechanisms associated with how memories are formed.
A pairing of presynaptic and postsynaptic activity in a population of hippocampal neurons can reduce the required number of synaptic plasticity evoking events. When spikes occur within ten milliseconds of each other, synapses strengthen for up to four hours.
A new study claims researchers have been able to reactivate memories which could not otherwise be retrieved by using optogenetics.
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.
