Blocking it stumps memory-guided decision-making in rats – NIH-funded study Awake mental replay of past experiences is essential for making...
Pyramidal cells in the CA2 region of the hippocampus are responsible for storing critical timing information.
Using a chocolatey reward, researchers discover how rats form some memories.
Study shows how hippocampal cells can represent different hypothetical scenarios consistently and systematically over time. The findings shed new light on how place cells assist in decision making and imagination.
Rat study reveals place cells in the hippocampus have the same patterns of activity whether they correctly, or incorrectly recall a memory. However, when the memory is incorrect, the activity begins later and is slower.
SCN2A, a gene commonly associated with intellectual ability, plays an essential role in memory formation and replay, a new study reports.
Grid cells have been found in the presubiculum and parasubiculum of the rat brain.
