Neuroscientists learn more about memory formation

The formation of memories may be found in the spatial and temporal relationship between molecules, and when they are active during this process.

Two types of molecules play a role in the formation of intermediate-term (hours) and long-term (days) memories. By contrast, only one is active for short-term memories (less than 30 minutes).

These insights into the molecular architecture of memory formation may provide a better roadmap for developing therapeutic interventions for memory-related afflictions.
