Sleep-deprived mice had increased activity in hippocampal inhibitory neurons, disrupting the processing and storage of new memories.
Researchers believe they have found a cause of memory loss in epilepsy patients by recording single neurons in the brain.
Researchers propose a novel computational framework that uses artificial intelligence technology to disentangle the relationship between perception and memory in the human brain.
Specific neural learning processes are linked to symptoms of depression. Improvements in the learning processes were associated with overall improvements in depression symptoms.
While the visual cortex stores individual images in the brain, the hippocampus plays a significant role in the ability to recognize a sequence of images.
Reduction of semantic memory could be an indicator of Alzheimer's disease 12 years before onset. Researchers examine different types of memory loss associated with dementia.
Reconstituting the amount of chondroitin 6-sulphate to perineuronal nets completely restored memory and brain plasticity in aging mice to a similar level as seen in younger animals, a new study reports. The findings could lead to new therapies to restore age-related memory loss in older humans.
Combining EEG data and MRI brain scans, researchers discovered how, during sleep, the hippocampus sends memory information it has stored throughout the day to the cerebral cortex, allowing for memory consolidation.
