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.
Working with patients with electrodes implanted in their brains, researchers show that areas of the brain work simultaneously to recall memories. The approach promises new insights into how we remember details of time and place.
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.
Mouse study reveals brain activity patterns associated with memory recall become active when learning by observation.
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.
Napping influences memory in the right hemisphere of the brain, inducing false memories in a word recall test, researchers report.
A new study reports older adults who improved their fitness through moderate intensity exercise increased cortical thickness.
