...pus, a brain region important for learning, memory consolidation and spatial orientation, pyramidal neurons express all three subunits at different levels. The surprising finding was that the SK2 subunit, which is highly sensitive to the bee-venom toxin apamin, was expressed at high levels in hippocampal pyramidal...

Instant replay: study finds potential mechanism for building long-term memory

... lasts only a few hours or couple of days, and the consolidation of long-term memory in the mammalian brain can take weeks, months or even years. "The time scale simply doesn't match." The answer may be that something very similar to the initial learning event happens again and again, a process Tsien calls synap...

Drowsy fruit flies illuminate first molecular pathway, in any species, known to regulate rest and wakefulness

...ny researchers believe exists between rest and the consolidation of memory. The Penn group is continuing its studies of how CREB is turned on, as well as the target genes affected by its activity. They suspect that CREB activation during rest may somehow optimize the function of the central nervous system during ...

One theory is that older people are not only waking up at an earlier clock hour but are also waking at a different internal circadian time. Recent findings suggest that an alteration in the relative timing betwe...

New principle guides memory dynamics

...d dogma was that for each separate item of memory, consolidation occurs just once, after which the time window that allows for "memory erasing" closes (usually about an hour or two after the memory is acquired).
