A recent study indicates microRNAs may play a far more important role in memory formation than previously thought. The research suggests microRNA—miR-182 is involved in developing memory in the amgydala.
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.
A new study identifies a sub region of the brain that works to form a particular kind of memory: fear-associated with a specific environmental cue or “contextual fear memory."
According to researchers, electrical activity in the brain may be a primary factor in memory permanence.
A new study claims researchers have been able to reactivate memories which could not otherwise be retrieved by using optogenetics.
Researchers have identified how neural stem cells remain relatively free of age related damage.
