Latest Long-term potentiation Stories
A researcher from the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta has discovered a mechanism underlying some forms of obesity and addictions which could lead to a treatment for both diseases.
Deleting a certain gene in mice can make them smarter by unlocking a mysterious region of the brain considered to be relatively inflexible.
Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have discovered a mechanism that plays a critical role in the formation of long-term memory.
Study suggests mental activity could stave off age-related cognitive and memory decline.
Short-term memory may depend in a surprising way on the ability of newly formed neurons to erase older connections.
Researchers discover that the addition of the phosphor molecule to a the NMDA receptor in the brain is a necessary step in memory formation.
Memories aren't made of actin filaments. But their assembly is crucial for long-term potentiation (LTP), an increase in synapse sensitivity that researchers think helps to lay down memories.
Scientists have uncovered a novel mechanism linking soluble amyloid ? protein with the synaptic injury and memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease
The instruction manual for maintaining an efficient brain may soon include a section on synaptotagmin-IV (Syt-IV), a protein known to influence learning and memory, thanks to a study by University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers.
