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.
Study reveals receptor movement is essential for synaptic plasticity as a response to neural activity. Halting receptor movement may block specific memory acquisition, researchers report, thus confirming the role of synaptic plasticity in learning and memory.
A new study questions traditional views of how memories are formed and stored in the brain. Additionally, researchers propose a new mechanism for learning.
Study documents how CaMKII acts during synaptic plasticity, providing clues about the molecular signals that regulate memory formation.
A new, light controllable tool has been developed that allows researchers to explore CaMKII kinetics in memory and learning.
Research combines antibody precision with toxic oxygen burst to inactivate neural protein and temporarily abolish fear memory in mice.
Findings could help in the development of new prevention options and treatments for drug addiction, researchers report.
A new study reports on dopamine's important role in learning how to avoid unpleasant experiences.
A good night's sleep is critical for memory consolidation, a new study reports.
