A newly identified neural network in the hippocampal formation plays a critical role in memory and object-location learning. The findings are highly relevant to learning and memory disorders, including Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers report histamines can help improve memory of objects up-to 25 days longer than normal in mice, as well as improving people's long term memory test scores. The study suggests taking histamines may help alleviate symptoms of memory disorders such as Alzheimer's and other dementias.
A new neuroimaging study helped researchers capture the processes by which the brain stores information related to when events happen. The findings could help further the understanding of age related dementia.
