The evidence indicates that perirhinal synaptic weakening is critically involved in familiarity discrimination and the cortex is found to be essential for memory acquisition, retrieval and storage. Expand
"Cardiac memory": a struggle against forgetting.
E. Folco, K. Roder, G. Mitchell, G. Koren
Medicine, BiologyCirculation research
2003
TLDR
Study in the mollusk Aplysia showed that learning involves the strengthening and increased effectiveness of preexisting synapses, and studies in Drosophila and rodents have revealed that this process involves activation of the cAMP response element binding protein (CREB)-mediated transcriptional cascade.

Multiple memory systems: The power of interactions
R. J. McDonald, B. Devan, N. S. Hong

2004
TLDR
The view put forth in this mini-review is that interactions between memory systems produce normal and abnormal manifestations of behaviour, and by logical extension, an understanding of these complex interactions holds the key to understanding debilitating brain and psychiatric disorders. Expand

Sleep, Synaptic Plasticity, and Memory
Daiane C. F. Golbert, Annie C. Souza, Daniel Almeida-Filho, S. Ribeiro
Biology
2017
TLDR
The mechanisms underlying the intimate connection between sleep and learning are becoming increasingly clear: detoxifying the brain, replenishing metabolites, and homeostatically rescaling synaptic weights, prelearning sleep enables the acquisition of new memories during subsequent waking, and memories are processed during sleep so as to be strengthened, weakened, or restructured.Expand

TLDR
Primary evidence for the concept that Cytoplasmic Polyadenylation Element Binding (CPEB) protein enables the persistence of formed memories by transforming in prion-like manner from a soluble monomeric state to a self-perpetuating and persistent polymeric translationally active state required for maintaining persistent synaptic plasticity is considered.

This review focuses primarily on short-term sensitization of the gill and siphon reflex in the marine mollusk, Aplysia californica, and analyses of this form of learning provide direct evidence that protein phosphorylation dependent on cyclic adenosine monophosphate can modulate synaptic action.

The current state of genetic analysis of learning and memory in the fruitfly, Drosophila melanogaster, is reviewed, suggesting that core cellular mechanisms of simple forms of learning are evolutionarily conserved and biological pathways discovered in invertebrates are likely to be conserved in vertebrates as well.

Long-term synaptic facilitation in the absence of short-term facilitation in Aplysia neurons.
N. Emptage, T. Carew
Biology, Medicine
Science

1993
TLDR
Short-term and long-term synaptic facilitation are induced in parallel in the sensory neurons and that the short-term process, because it is induced and expressed at the synapse, can occur locally, but the long- term process,Because of its dependence on a nuclear signal, is expressed throughout the neuron.

TLDR
Analysis of predator–prey interactions in a Zambian national park allows the first direct test for interaction between responses to long-term and short-term risk in the wild, and reveals that prey vigilance responds strongly to locations with high long- term risk when short- Term risk is high, but not when short -term risk is low.
