While the visual cortex stores individual images in the brain, the hippocampus plays a significant role in the ability to recognize a sequence of images.
The findings of a new study in mice may shed light on why dieting humans have a hard time sticking to food restrictions.
Combining EEG data and MRI brain scans, researchers discovered how, during sleep, the hippocampus sends memory information it has stored throughout the day to the cerebral cortex, allowing for memory consolidation.
Research shows the role the molecular hauler KIF5C plays in long-term memory and synaptic plasticity.
Brain cells snap DNA in more places and in more cell types than previously realized in order to express genes for learning and memory.
Over 50% of people surveyed reporting they feel uneasy about returning to in-person interactions, regardless of vaccination status, following covid lockdowns. Researchers share their thoughts on how social isolation and resocialization could impact th…
Study reveals high-potency cannabis does not impact decision-making performance but does affect memory in relation to free recall, source memory, and false memories.
Trihexyphenidyl, an anticholinergic medication commonly prescribed for Parkinson’s symptoms, appears to alleviate negative memory flashbacks and nightmares experienced by those with PTSD.
People’s recollections of events are wrong approximately 36% of the time, especially if the events are similar.
The structure of SuperAgers’ brains and the connectivity of their neural networks more closely resembles the brains of younger adults, a neuroimaging study reveals.
Ketamine and exposure to 60-hertz flickering light show promise as a potentially new, non-invasive therapy to help rejuvenate the aging brain.
Researchers have identified a novel population of neurons in the temporal pole that links facial perception to long-term memory.
Neuroimaging study reveals abnormalities in memory replay in those with schizophrenia.
Immersive virtual reality enhances theta and eta waves in the hippocampus, improving memory, learning and neuroplasticity.
Specific hippocampal neurons may be involved in time-related memory encoding. Findings reveal the human brain contains time-tracking neurons.
Saturated fatty acid levels rise in the brain during the formation of new memories, researchers say. The highest levels of saturated fatty acids were found in the amygdala, an area of the brain associated with fear and emotional memories.
Study finds amyloid-beta plaques may not be the cause of memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but instead a consequence of the disease. Regardless of the levels of amyloid plaques, researchers found individuals with high levels of amyloid p…
A new study sheds light on visual development and learning in children. Researchers found cortical recycling in the ventral temporal cortex reflects adjustments to changing visual demands throughout childhood.
While commonly implicated in long-term memory, researchers report the hippocampus plays a critical role in short-term memory and decision making.
Depleting the protein ADORA2B from the blood of mice led to faster cognitive decline, decreased auditory processing, and increased brain inflammation.
