Hippocampal short-wave ripples trigger spontaneous recollections and reinstate cortical representation during free recall of episodic memories.
Using a mathematical model, researchers uncover the effects of emotion in memory encoding. They hope the data can be used to predict which experiences a person is most likely to recall.
Using non-invasive transcranial direct current stimulation to target the left rostrolateral prefrontal cortex improves memory retrieval.
Study reports people access fully detailed memories at different speeds and levels of detail, often accessing older information first. Findings could help developing treatments for those with PTSD, researchers say.
Napping influences memory in the right hemisphere of the brain, inducing false memories in a word recall test, researchers report.
Researchers report they have discovered how the mouse brain links different memories over time.
According to researchers, episodic memory may be important for helping middle aged and older adults to recover from negative events.
A new study reports older adults who improved their fitness through moderate intensity exercise increased cortical thickness.
