In the brains of adult mice, astrocytes coupling contributes to neural functioning in the hippocampus, an area of the brain associated with spatial memory and learning.
Study identifies a novel neural circuit that regulates spatial learning and memory in the brain's hippocampal formation.
The postrhinal cortex of rats contains three types of spatial cells which act together to provide a sense of location and directional orientation.
A new mouse study reveals a small cluster of interneurons in the hippocampus help the brain remember the places that matter the most. The findings could have implications for future studies of psychiatric disorders.
A new study reports mother rats who received hormone replacement therapy responded worse to memory and spatial learning tasks than those who had not given birth. Researchers suggest a woman's reproductive history could impact how the brain responds to hormones later in life.
Researchers report tau pathology can be reversed in Alzheimer's patients with the help of a drug. Their study reveals reversing tau pathology in mouse models of dementia resulted in a reversal of cognitive deficits in spatial learning.
Researchers report klotho, a life extending protein, improved working memory, spatial memory and learning in mice. The researchers also noted a single injection of klotho was sufficient to improve cognitive ability and the effects were long lasting.
A new study reveals how neurons in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampal neurons work together to help guide future learning.
Protein shown to fuel exercise induced neurogenesis in mice also increases when humans run.
Alzheimer's disease research has been enhanced by researchers who have developed a comparable test of memory and learning for humans from a commonly used mouse experiment.
Learning detailed navigational information causes hippocampal changes, a new study reports.
Researchers create a multisensory virtual reality environment in order to better understand how the brain processes spatial navigation and the anticipation of important events.
