ISRIB, a synthetic molecule capable of boosting protein synthesis, restored memory function in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease and restored protein synthesis in the hippocampus.
According to a new study, the brain blocks the ability for creating new memories shortly after waking in order to prevent the disruption of the stabilization of memory consolidation that occurs during sleep.
Researchers have identified a neural process which could help restore lost memories and bury bad memories.
Researchers have identified how neural stem cells remain relatively free of age related damage.
Researchers have devised a new way to map the transcriptome. In the process, they have revealed important variations in protein synthesis. The approach could have implications for furthering understanding of neurodegenerative diseases.
Electrical stimulation of the hippocampus activates the same receptor complexes as memory recall and learning, a new study reveals.
According to researchers, electrical activity in the brain may be a primary factor in memory permanence.
