MIT neuroscientists map neural circuits involving the CA2 region of the hippocampus. The hippocampus is the region of the brain that is responsible for episodic memory. For decades, [...]
The vagaries of human memory are notorious. A friend insists you were at your 15th class reunion when you know it was your 10th. You distinctly remember that another friend was at your wedding, [...]
MIT study also pinpoints where the brain stores memory traces, both false and authentic. The phenomenon of false memory has been well-documented: In many court cases, defendants have been found [...]
Picower Institute neuroscientists use single dose of experimental drug; could prove promising for treatment of autism symptoms. Neuroscientists at MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory [...]
Simply activating a tiny number of neurons can conjure an entire memory. Our fond or fearful memories — that first kiss or a bump in the night — leave memory traces that we may conjure up in the [...]
Cambridge, Ma - Researchers at MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory report for the first time that neurons at different stages of their life cycles may perform two separate functions...
Cambridge, Ma - In the moments after lightning streaks through the sky, we wait for the clap of thunder that experience has...
Cambridge, Ma - Neuroscientists at MIT’s Picower Institute of Learning and Memory have uncovered why relatively minor details of...
Outside of certain circles at MIT, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who is familiar with the biotech startup Galenea. The Cambridge, MA-based firm has been researching drugs for [...]
By examining how we learn and store memories, Australian and American scientists have uncovered a new mechanism of learning that might prove useful in helping people who have lost their capacity [...]
