Researchers have implicated TOMM40, a gene adjacent to APOE on chromosome 19, in the development of Alzheimer's disease. TOMM40, researchers report, plays a significant role in the decline of verbal learning after the age of 60.
A drop of testosterone under the tongue allowed women to better orient themselves in navigational tests, a new study reports.
A new, whole brain map of neural connectivity reveals low frequency activity rhythms drive communication between key areas involved in memory processing.
Hippocampal neurons that respond to fearful stimuli relay that information to the amygdala. These neurons synchronize when memories of the stimuli are later recalled. The synchrony is critical to establish fear memories and the greater the synchrony, the stronger the memory becomes.
The mood in which a baby is in when it learns new information plays a key role in their ability to recall information.
Researchers propose highly selective neural representations are well suited to co-activating multiple things at the same time in short terms memory.
A new study reports microRNAs in the blood are altered as a result of sleep deprivation. Researchers used MiRNA alterations as a biomarker to determine cognitive performance following psychological stress and sleep loss.
