Physiological characteristics of capacity constraints in working memory as revealed by functional MRI. (1/8569)

A fundamental characteristic of working memory is that its capacity to handle information is limited. While there have been many brain mapping studies of working memory, the physiological basis of its capacity limitation has not been explained. We identified characteristics of working memory capacity using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in healthy subjects. Working memory capacity was studied using a parametric 'n-back' working memory task involving increasing cognitive load and ultimately decreasing task performance. Loci within dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) evinced exclusively an 'inverted-U' shaped neurophysiological response from lowest to highest load, consistent with a capacity-constrained response. Regions outside of DLPFC, in contrast, were more heterogeneous in response and often showed early plateau or continuously increasing responses, which did not reflect capacity constraints. However, sporadic loci, including in the premotor cortex, thalamus and superior parietal lobule, also demonstrated putative capacity-constrained responses, perhaps arising as an upstream effect of DLPFC limitations or as part of a broader network-wide capacity limitation. These results demonstrate that regionally specific nodes within the working memory network are capacity-constrained in the physiological domain, providing a missing link in current explorations of the capacity characteristics of working memory.  (+info)

Neural changes after operant conditioning of the aerial respiratory behavior in Lymnaea stagnalis. (2/8569)

In this study, we demonstrate neural changes that occurred during operant conditioning of the aerial respiratory behavior of Lymnaea stagnalis. Aerial respiration in Lymnaea occurs at the water interface and is achieved by opening and closing movements of its respiratory orifice, the pneumostome. This behavior is controlled by a central pattern generator (CPG), the neurons of which, as well as the motoneurons innervating the pneumostome, have previously been identified and their synaptic connections well characterized. The respiratory behavior was operantly conditioned by applying a mechanical stimulus to the open pneumostome whenever the animal attempted to breathe. This negative reinforcement to the open pneumostome resulted in its immediate closure and a significant reduction in the overall respiratory activity. Electrophysiological recordings from the isolated CNSs after operant conditioning showed that the spontaneous patterned respiratory activity of the CPG neurons was significantly reduced. This included reduced spontaneous activity of the CPG interneuron involved in pneumostome opening (input 3 interneuron) and a reduced frequency of spontaneous tonic activity of the CPG interneuron [right pedal dorsal 1 (RPeD1)]. The ability to trigger the patterned respiratory activity by electrical stimulation of RPeD1 was also significantly reduced after operant conditioning. This study therefore demonstrates significant changes within a CPG that are associated with changes in a rhythmic homeostatic behavior after operant conditioning.  (+info)

Differential spatial memory impairment after right temporal lobectomy demonstrated using temporal titration. (3/8569)

In this study a temporal titration method to explore the extent to which spatial memory is differentially impaired following right temporal lobectomy was employed. The spatial and non-spatial memory of 19 left and 19 right temporal lobectomy (TL) patients was compared with that of 16 normal controls. The subjects studied an array of 16 toy objects and were subsequently tested for object recall, object recognition and memory for the location of the objects. By systematically varying the retention intervals for each group, it was possible to match all three groups on object recall at sub-ceiling levels. When memory for the position of the objects was assessed at equivalent delays, the right TL group revealed disrupted spatial memory, compared with both left TL and control groups (P < 0.05). MRI was used to quantify the extent of temporal lobe resection in the two groups and a significant correlation between hippocampal removal and both recall of spatial location and object name recall in the right TL group only was shown. These data support the notion of a selective (but not exclusive) spatial memory impairment associated with right temporal lobe damage that is related to the integrity of the hippocampal functioning.  (+info)

Object location learning and non-spatial working memory of patients with Parkinson's disease may be preserved in "real life" situations. (4/8569)

The presence of a spatial memory deficit in Parkinson's disease (PD) is still a matter of discussion. Nineteen PD patients and 16 controls were given two spatial tests and a non-spatial task. First, the subject was led into a room containing 4 objects and had 10 s to memorize their location. After being led outside, the subject had to place icons representing the objects on a map of the room. Differences between the real and estimated locations were evaluated. Afterwards, the subject had to choose a map showing the correct arrangement of objects from 4 alternatives. Locations of some objects were changed before the second test. The subject had 10 s to detect these changes. One point was given for each change or its absence detected. In the non-spatial working memory task, 8 cards of different shapes were used. The subject had to select a different card each time while the cards were shuffled between choices. Errors consisted of selecting previously chosen cards. The means of the above measures for both groups were compared. Absence of any significant differences suggests that PD patients perform well in "real life" memory tests in contrast to similar computerized tests.  (+info)

The predictive value of changes in effective connectivity for human learning. (5/8569)

During learning, neural responses decrease over repeated exposure to identical stimuli. This repetition suppression is thought to reflect a progressive optimization of neuronal responses elicited by the task. Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to study the neural basis of associative learning of visual objects and their locations. As expected, activation in specialized cortical areas decreased with time. However, with path analysis it was shown that, in parallel to this adaptation, increases in effective connectivity occurred between distinct cortical systems specialized for spatial and object processing. The time course of these plastic changes was highly correlated with individual learning performance, suggesting that interactions between brain areas underlie associative learning.  (+info)

Crossmodal associative memory representations in rodent orbitofrontal cortex. (6/8569)

Firing patterns of neurons in the orbitofrontal cortex (OF) were analyzed in rats trained to perform a task that encouraged incidental associations between distinct odors and the places where their occurrence was detected. Many of the neurons fired differentially when the animals were at a particular location or sampled particular odors. Furthermore, a substantial fraction of the cells exhibited odor-specific firing patterns prior to odor presentation, when the animal arrived at a location associated with that odor. These findings suggest that neurons in the OF encode cross-modal associations between odors and locations within long-term memory.  (+info)

Episodic memory in transient global amnesia: encoding, storage, or retrieval deficit? (7/8569)

OBJECTIVES: To assess episodic memory (especially anterograde amnesia) during the acute phase of transient global amnesia to differentiate an encoding, a storage, or a retrieval deficit. METHODS: In three patients, whose amnestic episode fulfilled all current criteria for transient global amnesia, a neuropsychological protocol was administered which included a word learning task derived from the Grober and Buschke's procedure. RESULTS: In one patient, the results suggested an encoding deficit, and in two others, a storage deficit. CONCLUSIONS: The encoding/storage impairment concerning anterograde amnesia documented in our patients stands in clear contrast with the impairment in retrieval which must underly the retrograde amnesia that also characterises transient global amnesia. This dissociation in turn favours the idea of a functional independence among the cognitive mechanisms that subserve episodic memory.  (+info)

Executive function in depression: the role of performance strategies in aiding depressed and non-depressed participants. (8/8569)

OBJECTIVES: Depression has been found to be associated with dysfunction in executive processes, whereas relatively automatic processes are thought to remain intact. Failure to generate or implement adequate performance strategies has been postulated in depressed participants. The present study investigated spontaneous strategy usage in depressed and control participants, and the effectiveness of providing a hint about performance strategies. METHODS: Unipolar depressed participants were compared with matched healthy controls on three tasks sensitive to executive function: memory for categorised words, response suppression, and multiple scheduling. Participants in each group were randomly allocated to strategy aid and no strategy aid conditions. Those in the strategy aid condition were given a hint about the use of an appropriate performance strategy for each task, in addition to the standard instructions given to those in the no strategy aid condition. RESULTS: Depressed participants performed worse than controls on each of the three tasks, and were found to use appropriate performance strategies less often. Provision of strategy hints increased the use of performance strategies in two of the three tasks, memory for categorised words, and response suppression, but did not significantly improve overall performance for either group. CONCLUSIONS: The findings were consistent with the view that depressed participants fail to use appropriate performance strategies spontaneously to the same extent as controls. However, provision of information alone does not seem to be an adequate means of enhancing performance. The role of performance strategies in cognitive impairment in depression is discussed, both in terms of initiating use of such strategies and carrying these out efficiently.  (+info)

Intermediate-term memory (ITM) is a stage of memory distinct from sensory memory, working memory/short-term memory, and long-term memory.[1][2] While sensory memory persists for several milliseconds, working memory persists for up to thirty seconds, and long-term memory persists from thirty minutes to the end of an individuals life, intermediate-term memory persists for about two to three hours.[3] This overlap in the durations of these memory processes indicates that they occur simultaneously, rather than sequentially. Indeed, intermediate-term facilitation can be produced in the absence of long-term facilitation.[4] However, the boundaries between these forms of memory are not clear-cut, and they can vary depending on the task.[5] Intermediate-term memory is thought to be supported by the parahippocampal cortex.[6] In 1993, Rosenzweig and colleagues demonstrated that, in rats conditioned with an aversive stimulus, percent avoidance of the stimulus (and, by implication, memory of the aversive ...
This study examined the development of declarative and procedural memory longitudinally in primary school-aged children. At present, although there is a general consensus that age-related improvements during this period can be found for declarative memory, there are conflicting data on the developmental trajectory of the procedural memory system. At Time 1 children aged around 5 years were presented with measures of declarative and procedural memory. The tasks were then administered 12 months later. Performance on the declarative memory task was found to improve at a faster rate in comparison to the procedural memory task. The findings of the study support the view that multiple memory systems reach functional maturity at different points in development ...
Introduction. SOPHIE ELLIS WORKING MEMORY MODEL WHAT IS THE WORKING MEMORY MODEL? The working memory model was proposed by two men called Alan Baddeley and Graham Hitch in 1974. This model was an alternative to Atkinson & Shiffrins multi-store memory model (1968) to show that short-term memory was actually a lot more complex than the MSM (multi-store model) had previously suggested. Although the MSM was extremely successful in terms of the amount of research it generated, it became apparent that there were a number of problems with their ideas concerning the characteristics of short-term memory. This is an improvement over the multi-store model of memory because it is more detailed, and therefore we can learn more about the stores of memory in the brain from it. The working model proposes an active, multi-component short-term memory store with each sub-system having its own role to play in learning, problem solving and concentration. more. Middle. It is helpful to think of it as ...
Long-term memory consolidation such as remote fear memory formation is thought to depend on the gradual transfer of memory traces from hippocampal to cortical structures in a periodic and sleep-dependent process, which may involve the function of clock genes (40). In this study, we analyzed cognitive processing in single and double null mouse mutants of the clock modulators SHARP1 and -2. We discovered that S1/2−/− mice display enhanced performance in cortex-dependent learning tasks, which is paralleled by elevated Igf2 expression and MAPK signaling in the ACx but not the Hi. Moreover, virally modulated IGF2 signaling in the ACC altered remote fear memory formation in WT mice. We conclude that elevated IGF2 expression in the ACx might activate MAPK signaling to enhance memory consolidation in cortex-dependent learning tasks in S1/2−/− mice. MAPK signaling has already been reported to be important for hippocampal memory formation in mice (12) and in long-term memory consolidation in ...
In cognitive psychology and neuroscience, spatial memory is the part of memory responsible for recording information about ones environment and spatial orientation. For example, a persons spatial memory is required in order to navigate around a familiar city, just as a rats spatial memory is needed to learn the location of food at the end of a maze. It is often argued that in both humans and animals, spatial memories are summarized as a cognitive map. Spatial memory has representations within working, short-term memory and long-term memory. Research indicates that there are specific areas of the brain associated with spatial memory. Many methods are used for measuring spatial memory in children, adults, and animals. Short-term memory (STM) can be described as a system allowing one to temporarily store and manage information that is necessary to complete complex cognitive tasks. Tasks which employ short-term memory include learning, reasoning, and comprehension. Spatial memory is a cognitive ...

AU - Hodge, James J L. PY - 2013/3/27. Y1 - 2013/3/27. N2 - CaMKII is a central molecule in mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and memory. A vital feature of CaMKII in plasticity is its ability to switch to a calcium (Ca2+) independent constitutively active state after autophosphorylation at threonine 287 (T287). A second pair of sites, T306 T307 in the calmodulin (CaM) binding region once autophosphorylated, prevent subsequent CaM binding and inactivates the kinase during synaptic plasticity and memory. Recently a synaptic molecule called CASK has been shown to control both sets of CaMKII autophosphorylation events and hence is well poised to be a key regulator of memory. We show deletion of full length CASK or just its CaMK-like and L27 domains disrupts middle-term memory (MTM) and long-term memory (LTM), ...

A memory system is provided that enhances the memory bandwidth available through a memory module. The memory system includes a memory controller and a memory module coupled to the memory controller. In the memory system, the memory controller is coupled to the memory module via at least two independent memory channels. In the memory system, the at least two independent memory channels are coupled to one or more memory hub devices of the memory module.
The hippocampus replays experiences during quiet rest periods, and this replay benefits subsequent memory. A critical open question is how memories are prioritized for this replay. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) pattern analysis to track item-level replay in the hippocampus during an awake rest period after participants studied 15 objects and completed a memory test. Objects that were remembered less well were replayed more during the subsequent rest period, suggesting a prioritization process in which weaker memories-memories most vulnerable to forgetting-are selected for replay. In a second session 12 hours later, more replay of an object during a rest period predicted better subsequent memory for that object. Replay predicted memory improvement across sessions only for participants who slept during that interval. Our results provide evidence that replay in the human hippocampus prioritizes weakly learned information, predicts subsequent memory performance, and relates to memory
The classic modal model of memory argues that short term memory (STM) serves as the primary gateway for the formation of long term memory (LTM) representations (Atkinson & Shiffrin, 1968). Over the years, though, this model has been disregarded by many because of various incompatible results. For example, one common interpretation of this model is that STM serves as an incubator that strengthens representations through repeated rehearsal so that they can be successfully transferred to LTM. However, several researchers have found that longer periods of retention and rehearsal in STM does not lead to better LTM representations (e.g. Craik Watkins, 1973). In this study, we took a different approach to test this model. Rather than conceptualizing STM as an incubator, we instead tested whether it serves as the gate that filters what information from the environment will ultimately be encoded into LTM. It is well known that individuals substantially and reliably vary in their STM capacity. ...
Memory consolidation requires a timely controlled interplay between the hippocampus, a brain region important for memory formation, and the cortex, a region recruited for memory storage. Here we show that memory consolidation is associated with specific epigenetic modifications on histone proteins that have a distinct dynamic in these brain areas. While in the hippocampus, histone post-translational modifications (PTMs) are rapidly and transiently activated after learning, in the cortex they are induced with delay but persist over time. When these histone PTMs are increased in vivo by transgenic intervention or intense training, they facilitate memory consolidation. Conversely, when they are pharmacologically blocked, memory consolidation is impaired. These histone PTMs are further associated with the expression of the immediate early gene zif268, a transcription factor that favours memory consolidation. These findings reveal the spatiotemporal dynamics of histone marks during memory ...

Acquired memory impairment commonly occurs after acquired brain injury such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, seizure disorder and encephalitis and is one the defining features of progressive disorders, such as Alzheimers disease. There is a growing body of knowledge about the use of compensatory memory aids in the rehabilitation of memory disorders. This study investigated the effect of the systematic training of compensatory memory aids on everyday memory performance within a Memory Aids Clinic, a specialised outpatient clinic which supplied and trained the use of memory aids. A comparison was made between subjects with acquired memory disorders in a treatment group (n=63) and control group (n = 28) in a between subjects design. All subjects underwent a baseline session which was comprised of a neuropsychological assessment, clinical interview and goal setting session. Treatment subjects then underwent three training sessions, matching memory aids to goals, across a six week period. Training ...
During tactile perception, long-range intracortical top-down axonal projections are essential for processing sensory information. Whether these projections regulate sleep-dependent long-term memory consolidation is unknown. We altered top-down inputs from higher-order cortex to sensory cortex during sleep and examined the consolidation of memories acquired earlier during awake texture perception. Mice learned novel textures and consolidated them during sleep. Within the first hour of non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep, optogenetic inhibition of top-down projecting axons from secondary motor cortex (M2) to primary somatosensory cortex (S1) impaired sleep-dependent reactivation of S1 neurons and memory consolidation. In NREM sleep and sleep-deprivation states, closed-loop asynchronous or synchronous M2-S1 coactivation, respectively, reduced or prolonged memory retention. Top-down cortical information flow in NREM sleep is thus required for perceptual memory consolidation. ...
The shared memory systems should support parallelization at the computation (multi-core), communication (Network-on-Chip, NoC) and memory architecture levels to exploit the potential performance benefits. These parallel systems supporting shared memory abstraction both in the general purpose and application specific domains are confronting the critical issue of memory consistency. The memory consistency issue arises due to the unconstrained memory operations which leads to the unexpected behavior of shared memory systems. The memory consistency models enforce ordering constraints on the memory operations for the expected behavior of the shared memory systems. The intuitive Sequential Consistency (SC) model enforces strict ordering constraints on the memory operations and does not take advantage of the system optimizations both in the hardware and software. Alternatively, the relaxed memory consistency models relax the ordering constraints on the memory operations and exploit these optimizations ...

Long term memory consists of anything you remember that happened more than a few minutes ago. Long term memories can last for days or even years.
Old and recent memories are retrieved differently. For the very first time we were able to show that the retrieval of old and recent memories are supported by distinct brain networks, Prof. Dr. Magdalena Sauvage reports. The CA3 region, believed to be the place of memory storage in the hippocampus, no longer plays a role when we remember very old memories. Rather, the involvement of the CA1 region persists and the cortical areas adjacent to the hippocampus become involved. The reason for the differential involvement of the hippocampal subregions could lie in the mechanisms supported by CA3, explains Prof. Sauvage: In CA3, memories can be retrieved on the basis of single features of an original memory, which are used as cues. Since the memory for single features degrades over time, we speculate that they might ultimately be of no more use as cues, hence retrieving memory would then essentially rely on CA1 and other processes taking place in the parahippocampal region of the brain. ...
Computer - Memory Units - Memory unit is the amount of data that can be stored in the storage unit. 6. They are the data and the set of instructions to execute a program. The memory hierarchy design in a computer system mainly includes different storage devices. The flash memory is among the special types of memory that can be erased and programmed with a block of data. When used by itself, the term RAM refers to read and write memory; that is, you can both write data into RAM and read data This article is about the Computer Memory.In this article, we are going to study about the types of Computer Memory.We will first define Memory and describe its Types and will also discuss Primary memory and its types (SRAM and DRAM), briefly learn about ROM and its types (PROM, EPROM, and EEPROM). The flash memory keeps its data even with no power at all. In a computer, all the programs are stored in hard disk drive. Every computer system contains two kinds of memory out of which one is primary and the other ...
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Modern architectures implement relaxed memory models which may reorder memory operations or execute them non-atomically. Special instructions called memory fences are provided, allowing control of this behavior. To implement a concurrent algorithm for a modern architecture, the programmer is forced to manually reason about subtle relaxed behaviors and figure out ways to control these behaviors by adding fences to the program. Not only is this process time consuming and error-prone, but it has to be repeated every time the implementation is ported to a different architecture. In this paper, we present the first scalable framework for handling real-world concurrent algorithms running on relaxed architectures. Given a concurrent C program, a safety specification, and a description of the memory model, our framework tests the program on the memory model to expose violations of the specification, and synthesizes a set of necessary
The PC Guide , Systems and Components Reference Guide , System Memory , Memory Errors, Detection and Correction ]. False Parity Memory (a.k.a. Logic Parity). Parity memory was replaced by non-parity memory as a cost-saving measure. However, the penny pinchers responsible for this had a problem--the large number of installed systems that had no way to turn off parity checking. So they came up with a solution--false parity memory. It is also called logic parity or parity generator memory--fancier names for the same crapola.. Regular parity checking works by storing a parity bit when a byte of data is written to memory, and then using it for error detection when the byte is read from memory. False parity memory replaces all the extra parity bits on a memory module with a special circuit. This circuit generates the correct parity bit each time any memory byte is read. So it is generating the bit at read time, instead of write time. The result is that a parity error will never occur--it ...
Episodic memories are established and maintained by close interplay between hippocampus and other cortical regions, but degradation of a fronto-striatal network has been suggested to be a driving force of memory decline in aging. We wanted to directly address how changes in hippocampal-cortical versus striatal-cortical networks over time impact episodic memory with age. We followed 119 healthy participants (20-83 years) for 3.5 years with repeated tests of episodic verbal memory and magnetic resonance imaging for quantification of functional and structural connectivity and regional brain atrophy. While hippocampal-cortical functional connectivity predicted memory change in young, changes in cortico-striatal functional connectivity were related to change in recall in older adults. Within each age group, effects of functional and structural connectivity were anatomically closely aligned. Interestingly, the relationship between functional connectivity and memory was strongest in the age ranges ...
The ability to learn and to establish new memories is essential to our daily existence and identity; enabling us to navigate through the world. A new study by researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (The Neuro), McGill University and University of California, Los Angeles has captured an image for the first time of a mechanism, specifically protein translation, which underlies long-term memory formation. The finding provides the first visual evidence that when a new memory is formed new proteins are made locally at the synapse - the connection between nerve cells - increasing the strength of the synaptic connection and reinforcing the memory. The study published in Science, is important for understanding how memory traces are created and the ability to monitor it in real time will allow a detailed understanding of how memories are formed.. When considering what might be going on in the brain at a molecular level two essential properties of memory need to be taken into ...
Long -term Memory is often divided into two further main types: explicit (or declarative) memory and implicit (or procedural) memory.
storage,. Memory above the first megabyte of address space in an IBM PC with an 80286 or later processor. Extended memory is not directly available in real mode, only through EMS, UMB, XMS, or HMA; only applications executing in protected mode can use extended memory directly. In this case, the extended memory is provided by a supervising protected-mode operating system such as Microsoft Windows. The processor makes this memory available through a system of global descriptor tables and local descriptor tables. The memory is protected in the sense that memory assigned a local descriptor cannot be accessed by another program without causing a hardware trap. This prevents programs running in protected mode from interfering with each others memory. A protected-mode operating system such as Windows can also run real-mode programs and provide expanded memory to them. DOS Protected Mode Interface is Microsofts prescribed method for an MS-DOS program to access extended memory under a multitasking ...
The main finding of this study is that CB1R signaling critically modulates memory reconsolidation processes necessary for subsequent drug context-induced cocaine-seeking behavior in an instrumental model of drug relapse. Furthermore, memory retrieval induces CB1R-dependent changes in IEG expression, glutamate receptor subunit phosphorylation, and excitatory synaptic transmission in the BLA during memory reconsolidation.. Systemic CB1R antagonism during cocaine-memory reconsolidation (i.e., immediately after memory retrieval) reduced drug context-induced cocaine-seeking behavior 3 d later, relative to VEH (Fig. 1). The CB1R antagonist, AM251 does not alter inhibitory avoidance (Gobira et al., 2013) or grooming behaviors (Hodge et al., 2008) at similar doses, suggesting it is not aversive. Furthermore, AM251 alone did not alter the expression of drug-seeking behavior despite its long half-life (i.e., 22 h; McLaughlin et al., 2003; Fig. 2). These observations suggest that CB1R signaling is ...
Whereas other studies on the molecular processes underlying reconsolidation have mainly focused on consolidated memories a long time (days to weeks) after training (Nader et al., 2000; Abel and Lattal, 2001; Milekic and Alberini, 2002), here we investigated reconsolidation processes in an earlier time window (6-24 h) after acquisition. In this earlier time window of consolidated memory, we identified phase-dependent differences in the requirement for protein synthesis and PKA activity for memory reconsolidation after retrieval. Our study shows that translation-dependent processes are required for reconsolidation at both 6 and 24 h. This supports the notion that translation-dependent processes are critical for reconsolidation independently of the time of retrieval, at least within the time window investigated here. However, this is not the case for the function of PKA in reconsolidation in the same time window. Our direct measurements show that memory retrieval at 6 h after training, but not at ...
P>It has been postulated that memory consolidation process requires post-learning molecular changes that will support long-term experiences. In the present study, we assessed with in vivo microdialysis and capillary electrophoresis whether such changes involve the release of neurotransmitters at post-acquisition stages. Using conditioned taste aversion paradigm we observed spontaneous off-line (i.e. in absence of stimulation) dopamine and glutamate reactivation within the insular cortex about 45 min after the stimuli association. These increments did not appear in control groups that were unable to acquire the task, and it seems to be dependent on amygdala activity since its reversible inactivation by tetrodotoxin impaired cortical off-line release of both neurotransmitters and memory consolidation. In addition, blockade of dopaminergic D1 and/or NMDA receptors before the off-line activity impaired long- but not short-term memory. These results suggest that off-line extracellular increments of ...
The present fMRI experiment employed associative recognition to investigate the relationships between age and encoding-related negative subsequent memory effects and task-negative effects. Young, middle-aged and older adults (total n=136) were scanned while they made relational judgments on visually presented word pairs. In a later memory test, the participants made associative recognition judgments on studied, rearranged (items studied on different trials) and new pairs. Several regions, mostly localized to the default mode network, demonstrated negative subsequent memory effects in an across age-group analysis. All but one of these regions also demonstrated task-negative effects, although there was no correlation between the size of the respective effects. Whereas negative subsequent memory effects demonstrated a graded attenuation with age, task-negative effects declined markedly between the young and the middle-aged group, but showed no further reduction in the older group. Negative ...

Medial temporal lobe structures such as the hippocampus have been shown to play a critical role in mnemonic processes, with additional recruitment of the amygdala when memories contain emotional content. Thus far, studies that have examined the relationship between amygdala activity and memory have typically relied on emotional content of the kind that is rarely encountered in day-to-day interactions. The present event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging study investigates whether amygdala activity supports emotional memory during the more subtle social interactions that punctuate everyday life. Across four training sessions, subjects learned common first names for unfamiliar faces in the presence or absence of additional contextual information that was positive, negative, and neutral in valence (e.g., Emily helps the homeless, Bob is a deadbeat dad, Eric likes carrots). During scanning, subjects performed a yes/no recognition memory test on studied and novel faces. Results ...

The GluN2B subunit of the N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor shows age-related declines in expression across the frontal cortex and hippocampus. This decline is strongly correlated to age-related memory declines. This study was designed to determine if increasing GluN2B subunit expression in the frontal lobe or hippocampus would improve memory in aged mice. Mice were injected bilaterally with either the GluN2B vector, containing cDNA specific for the GluN2B subunit and enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP); a control vector or vehicle. Spatial memory, cognitive flexibility, and associative memory were assessed using the Morris water maze. Aged mice, with increased GluN2B subunit expression, exhibited improved long-term spatial memory, comparable to young mice. However, memory was rescued on different days in the Morris water maze; early for hippocampal GluN2B subunit enrichment and later for the frontal lobe. A higher concentration of the GluN2B antagonist, Ro 25-6981, was required to ...
Memory pressure is caused when someone needs memory. Usually, that memory is simply any free memory. At times, more specialized memory is needed and you can see pressure when there is lots of free memory of other kinds. A few examples of these special needs would be DMA-capable memory, physical contiguity for large pages, low memory, and memory on one NUMA node. A common mistake is assuming that having any free memory means that there is no pressure. ...
Over a century of behavioral research has shown that stress can exert both positive and negative effects on memory. We have explored the idea that the complex effects of stress on learning and memory can be characterized by hormetic- and non-hormetic dose-response functions, in which stress may either stimulate or impair brain memory mechanisms, depending, in part, on the timing and duration of the stress experience. Extensive work has shown that acute stress or corticosteroid administration has a biphasic effect specifically on hippocampus-dependent learning, memory and synaptic plasticity. We suggest that brief stress exerts a rapid enhancement of memory-related functions of the hippocampus, produced by the amygdala-induced activation of hippocampal synaptic plasticity in conjunction with excitatory effects of neuromodulators, including glucocorticoids, norepinephrine, corticotropin-releasing hormone, acetylcholine and dopamine. We propose that the rapid stress-induced activation of the amygdala
The nature of specific memories and memory more generally is not well understood beyond the domain of memory researchers. However recent findings from memory research has important implications for the use of memory as evidence, not only in the case of the eyewitness testimony, but also for how jurors, barristers, and judges weight evidence. For example, in the legal arena alone, erroneous beliefs about memory have led to unsafe convictions - Innocence Project, USA.. These misunderstandings of memory can also be damaging, where in cases of rape, for example, memory as the major form of evidence is often undervalued due to circumstances surrounding the rape incident (only 18% of reported rapes result in a prosecution, and less than 7% in a conviction; Ministry of Justice, Home Office and National Office of Statistics 2013: 7).. The mission of this Research Centre is to produce research that has mutual benefit to both scientific and forensic inquiry. We, as scientists have been able to progress ...

Results consistent with the theoretical predictions ...
Abstract of Physical Exercise Performed Four Hours after Learning Improves Memory Retention and Increases Hippocampal Pattern Similarity during Retrieval. Persistent long-term memory depends on successful stabilization and integration of new memories after initial encoding [ 1, 2 ]. This consolidation process is thought to require neuromodulatory factors such as dopamine, noradrenaline, and brain-derived neurotrophic factor [ 3-7 ]. Without the release of such factors around the time of encoding, memories will decay rapidly [ 3, 5, 6, 8 ]. Recent studies have shown that physical exercise acutely stimulates the release of several consolidation-promoting factors in humans [ 9-14 ], raising the question of whether physical exercise can be used to improve memory retention [ 15-17 ]. Here, we used a single session of physical exercise after learning to exogenously boost memory consolidation and thus long-term memory. Three groups of randomly assigned participants first encoded a set of ...
Autobiographical memory forms a network of memories about personal experiences that defines and supports well-being and effective functioning of the self in various ways. During the last three decades, there have been two characteristics of autobiographical memory that have received special interest regarding their role in psychological well-being and psychopathology, namely memory specificity and memory coherence. Memory specificity refers to the extent to which retrieved autobiographical memories are specific (i.e., memories about a particular experience that happened on a particular day). Difficulty retrieving specific memories interferes with effective functioning of the self and is related to depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Memory coherence refers to the narrative expression of the overall structure of autobiographical memories. It has likewise been related to psychological well-being and the occurrence of psychopathology. Research on memory specificity and memory coherence has

Episodic memory exercises such as reminiscing and storytelling have been shown to provide therapeutic benefits for older adults by prolonging their ability to lead an independent lifestyle. In this paper, we describe a mobile reminiscence tool called Memory Karaoke, which facilitates episodic memory exercise through contextualized storytelling of meaningful experiences by using contextual cues such as location, time, and photos. We present results from two studies we conducted with Memory Karaoke to explore which contextual cues contribute to best exercising a persons episodic memory. Our findings suggest that while viewing photos do exercise episodic memory to some extent, additional contextual cues (e.g. location and time) can solicit a greater amount of episodic memory exercise. This suggests that Memory Karaokes selective capture process and its ability to contextualize memories while users retell stories are two effective features which help it to support episodic memory use. These ...

Spatial memory deficits have been well documented in older adults and may serve as an early indicator of mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimers disease in some individuals. Pattern separation is a critical mechanism for reducing potential interference among similar memory representations to enhance memory accuracy. A small but growing literature indicates that spatial pattern separation may become less efficient as a result of normal aging, possibly due to age-related changes in subregions of the hippocampus. This decreased efficiency in spatial pattern separation may be a critical processing deficit that could be a contributing factor to spatial memory deficits and episodic memory impairment associated with aging. The present paper will review recently published studies in humans, nonhuman primates, and rodents that have examined age-related changes in spatial pattern separation. The potential basic science, translational, and clinical implications from these studies are discussed to illustrate the
One current challenge in cognitive training is to create a training regime that benefits multiple cognitive domains, including episodic memory, without relying on a large battery of tasks, which can be time-consuming and difficult to learn. By giving careful consideration to the neural correlates underlying episodic and working memory, we devised a computerized working memory training task in which neurologically healthy participants were required to monitor and detect repetitions in two streams of spatial information (spatial location and scene identity) presented simultaneously (i.e. a dual n-back paradigm). Participants episodic memory abilities were assessed before and after training using two object and scene recognition memory tasks incorporating memory confidence judgments. Furthermore, to determine the generalizability of the effects of training, we also assessed fluid intelligence using a matrix reasoning task. By examining the difference between pre- and post-training performance (i.e. gain

0072] FIG. 7 is a flow diagram of exemplary operations that may be performed by the memory controller during operations for determining an operational write latency of a memory device. The operations may begin in step 710 by retrieving memory device parameters such as WL, BL, and latency window. The foregoing information may be retrieved from the memory device, from a device utilized for the retention of such information and used in conjunction with one or more memory devices (e.g. the EEPROM device on a memory card or DIMM), etc. In step 720, the memory controller may set the write length WL to WL-M/2 and the burst length BL to BL+2*M, wherein M is the number of clock cycles within the latency window of the memory device. At step 730, the memory controller may perform a write operation. Then in step 740, the memory controller may read back the written data. In step 750, the memory controller may determine whether the data read from the memory device is the data intended to be written. If not, ...
The subject invention provides systems and methods that facilitate formation of semiconductor memory devices comprising memory cells with one or more injecting bilayer electrodes. Memory arrays generally comprise bit cells that have two discrete components; a memory element and a selection element, such as, for example, a diode. The invention increases the efficiency of a memory device by forming memory cells with selection diodes comprising a bilayer electrode. Memory cells are provided comprising bilayer cathodes and/or bilayer anodes that facilitate a significant improvement in charge injection into the diode layers of memory cells. The increased charge (e.g. electrons or holes) density in the diode layers of the selected memory cells results in improved memory cell switching times and lowers the voltage required for the memory cell to operate, thereby, creating a more efficient memory cell.
An SDRAM memory chip device comprises a non-volatile memory controller for operating a non-volatile memory, e.g., a NAND-flash, and a FIFO memory buffer. The FIFO memory buffer serves to operate background store and load operations between a FIFO buffer array and the non-volatile memory, while a host system such as a CPU exchanges data with the SDRAM work memory. The SDRAM memory chip device, therefore, has at least two additional pins as compared with conventional SDRAM standard for generating a set of additional commands. These commands are employed by the FIFO memory buffer to manage the data transfer between the FIFO buffer and each of the non-volatile memory and the volatile SDRAM memory. Two further pins reflecting the flash memory status provide appropriate issuance of load or store signals by the host system.

The goal of this dissertation was to investigate the memory retention effects of methylene blue (MB) in both appetitive and aversive memory tasks in rats. Methylene blue is a metabolic enhancer that improves memory retention in a variety of tasks including inhibitory avoidance, object recognition, spatial memory, and extinction of Pavlovian fear conditioning. Low dose MB has no side effects on behavior. MB works as a metabolic enhancer by increasing brain cytochrome oxidase activity and oxygen consumption. The first experiment was conducted to examine the effects of MB treatment in normal rats in the hole board spatial memory task, to determine if it could enhance memory of discrimination learning of rewarded versus non-rewarded trials. Subjects treated with MB discriminated better between rewarded and non-rewarded trials as compared to control subjects, indicated by a greater number of correct responses on rewarded trials than non-rewarded trials. The second experiment was conducted to ...

Episodic memory is a core feature of Alzheimers disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Impaired episodic memory in AD results from the dysfunction of an integrated network and involves both gray and white matter pathologies. We explored the neural correlates of episodic memory in AD, MCI and healthy aging by correlating a measure of episodic memory with hippocampal volume and fractional anisotropy (FA) and mean diffusivity (MD) of the cingulum and fornix. Episodic memory was associated with hippocampal volume and MD of the cingulum and fornix. In contrast, there were fewer significant associations between episodic memory and FA. These findings support a relationship between episodic memory and hippocampal circuitry, and suggest that MD is a more sensitive marker of decreased white matter integrity in the study of AD and MCI than FA. Furthermore, MD was significantly associated with hippocampal volume, indicating that white matter pathology is not completely independent of gray matter
However, cognitive enhancement remains to be controversial, especially with the notion of enhancer drugs becoming available for general consumption. That is because there are both short-term effects on cognition (delirium), and the potential for long-lasting changes in memory, attention and cognition.

Sleep, as defined by a state of rest, reduced sensory sensitivity, relaxed muscle tonus and altered neural activity, is well known across the animal kingdom from mollusks (Stephenson and Lewis, 2011) to humans. The role of sleep is likely to be manifold, but one particular property appears to exist across animal species - the supportive effect on memory consolidation. In humans, consolidation of different forms of memory appears to be supported by different sleep phases, e.g. perceptual memory (Mednick et al., 2003), sensory-motor memory (Brawn et al., 2008) and motor skill memory (Walker et al., 2002) by REM sleep, and declarative memory by slow wave sleep (Diekelmann and Born, 2010). Insects are known to go through rest phases that resemble key features of sleep [Drosophila (Hendricks et al., 2000; Shaw et al., 2000); honeybee (Kaiser, 1988)]. In Drosophila, the genes and signaling cascades that control sleep are already well understood (Sehgal and Mignot, 2011), and some of these regulatory ...
BACKGROUND: Subclinical doses of propofol produce anterograde amnesia, characterized by an early failure of memory consolidation. It is unknown how propofol affects the amygdala-dependent emotional memory system, which modulates consolidation in the hippocampus in response to emotional arousal and neurohumoral stress. We present an event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging study of the effects of propofol on the emotional memory system in human subjects.. METHODS: Thirty-five healthy subjects were randomized to receive propofol, at an estimated brain concentration of 0.90 μg ml(-1), or placebo. During drug infusion, emotionally arousing and neutral images were presented in a continuous recognition task, while blood-oxygen-level-dependent activation responses were acquired. After a drug-free interval of 2 h, subsequent memory for successfully encoded items was assessed. Imaging analysis was performed using statistical parametric mapping and behavioural analysis using signal detection ...
These experiments examined the effects of posttrial peripheral and intra-amygdala injections of the cholinergic muscarinic receptor agonist oxotremorine on memory consolidation underlying extinction of amphetamine conditioned place preference (CPP) behavior. Male Long-Evans rats were initially trained and tested for an amphetamine (2 mg/kg) CPP. Rats were subsequently given limited extinction training, followed by immediate posttrial peripheral or intrabasolateral amygdala injections of oxotremorine. A second CPP test was then administered, and the amount of time spent in the previously amphetamine-paired and saline-paired apparatus compartments was recorded. Peripheral (0.07 or 0.01 mg/kg) or intra-amygdala (10 etag/0.5 microL) postextinction trial injections of oxotremorine facilitated CPP extinction. Oxotremorine injections that were delayed 2 h posttrial training did not enhance CPP extinction, indicating a time-dependent effect of the drug on memory consolidation processes. The findings ...

In the movie Slumdog Millionaire, the childhood memories of a young game show contestant trigger his correct answers. In Memento, the amnesiac hero uses tattoos as memory aids. In Away from Her, an older woman suffering from dementia no longer remembers who her husband is. These are compelling films that tell affecting stories about the human condition. But what can these movies teach us about memory? In this book, John Seamon shows how examining the treatment of memory in popular movies can shed new light on how human memory works.. After explaining that memory is actually a diverse collection of independent systems, Seamon uses examples from movies to offer an accessible, nontechnical description of what science knows about memory function and dysfunction. In a series of lively encounters with numerous popular films, he draws on Life of Pi and Avatar, for example, to explain working memory, used for short-term retention. He describes the process of long-term memory with examples from such ...
Objective To compare the Double Memory Test (DMT) with standard memory tests in the diagnosis of early dementia.. Background Diagnosis of dementia requires memory impairment, but few memory tests coordinate acquisition and retrieval to optimize encoding specificity for high sensitivity and specificity. The DMT was developed to improve early diagnosis.. Design We compared the discriminative validity of the DMT, Paired Associates (PA), and Logical Memory (LM) memory tests in a nested case-control study of 30 cases of early dementia and 90 controls matched for age, education, and sex.. Methods The DMT includes memory tests with (CCR) and without (ICR) encoding specificity. Both tests use category cues to elicit retrieval, but CCR optimizes encoding specificity because the same cues are used for acquisition and retrieval. ICR does not because category cues are used only for retrieval. We used conditional logistic regression to estimate diagnostic sensitivity and specificity.. Results The median BIMC ...

Purpose: Circadian rhythm affects learning process, memory consolidation, and long-term memory. In this study, the alleviating effect of exercise on circadian rhythm disruption-induced memory deficits was investigated. Methods: BMAL1 knockdown transgenic mice (BMAL1 TG) were used as the BMAL1-TG group and the BMAL1-TG with treadmill exercise group. Female C57BL/6J mice of the same age were used as the wildtype group and the wildtype with treadmill exercise group. The mice in the treadmill exercise groups performed running on a motorized treadmill under the dark-dark conditions for 8 weeks. Short-term memory, nonspatial object memory, and spatial learning memory were determined using step-down avoidance test, novel object-recognition test, and radial 8-arm maze test. Immunohistochemistry for doublecortin and 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine was conducted for the determination of hippocampal neurogenesis. Using the western blot analysis, we determined the expressions of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and ...
Aging is typically associated with declining mental abilities, most prominent for some forms of memory. There are, however, large inter-individual differences within the older population. Some people experience rapid decline whereas others seem almost spared from any adverse effects of aging. This thesis examined the neural underpinnings of such individual differences by using longitudinal observations of episodic memory change across 15-20 years, combined with structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging of the brain. Study I found significant correlations between volume and activity of the hippocampus (HC), and memory change over a 6-year period. That is, individuals with decline in HC function also had declining memory. In contrast, Study II showed that successfully aged individuals, who maintained high memory scores over 15-20 years, had preserved HC function compared to age-matched elderly with average memory change. The successful agers had HC activity levels comparable to those of ...
Up to 65 percent of people who suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS) experience some degree of long-term memory loss. Montclair State Psychology Professor Joshua Sandry hopes his exploration of the cognitive and neural processes associated with long-term memory impairment in MS will eventually contribute to new memory rehabilitation techniques and treatments for patients with the disease.. Sandry is the principal investigator on a research project funded by the Consortium of MS Centers through the Kessler Foundation, where he is a visiting scientist. Together with co-investigator and Kessler Foundation research scientist Ekaterina Dobryakova, he will study how disease-related damage to the hippocampus affects working memory and long-term memory impairment in MS. The main purpose of this grant is to increase our understanding of the relationship between MS disease pathology and memory impairment, he says.. We know from past research that memory impairment in MS is related to hippocampal ...
The limitation of working memory to hold discrete units to an amount of 7 ± 2 items is called memory span and is a well proven finding in the field of cognitive research. The digit memory span test measure how many digits a subject can reproduce from a series of digits presented to them. The length of the series is increased with each correct reproduction. The test is aborted when the subject failed to reproduce two consecutive sequences. The length of the last correctly reproduced sequence is the estimate of the memory span. If the reproduction should be in reverse order, the executive control function is more prominent since the items must be re-ordered.. This task is relying heavily on an articulatory control process which is used for verbal rehearsal which was traditionally considered as the short term memory. In contemporary models of the working memory, there is also visuo-spatial sketch pad which handles non-symbolic information such as images and spatial information. The drastic ...
Previous research has demonstrated that glucose administration facilitates long-term memory performance. The aim of the present research was to evaluate the effect of glucose administration on different components of long-term recognition memory. Fifty-six healthy young individuals received (a) a drink containing 25 g of glucose or (b) an inert placebo drink. Recollection and familiarity components of recognition memory were measured using the remember-know paradigm. The results revealed that glucose administration led to significantly increased proportion of recognition responses based on recollection, but had no effect on the proportion of recognition responses made through participants detection of stimulus familiarity. Consequently, the data suggest that glucose administration appears to facilitate recognition memory that is accompanied by recollection of contextual details and episodic richness. The findings also suggest that memory tasks that result in high levels of hippocampal ...
The recall of a memory by a reminder stimulus places this memory back into an active and labile state, from which it is reconsolidated into an inactive and stable state. Is this cellular reconsolidation of memory simply a recapitulation of the events engaged at consolidation, or is there a more complicated process at work (see the Perspective by Izquierdo and Cammarota)? Lee et al. show that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), but not transcription factor Zif268, is necessary for the consolidation of contextual fear conditioning within the hippocampus. However, Zif268, but not BDNF, is required for reconsolidation of the contextual fear memory. Frankland et al. show that processing fear memories involves the activation of multiple cortical regions of the brain. Cortical activation was greater after remote, rather than recent, memory tests, which is consistent with an increasingly important role for the cortex over time. The anterior cingulate cortex, an area involved in processing ...
Women entering menopause sometimes report feeling fuzzy or less sharp mentally, or that they cant remember or concentrate as well as they once did. Its not clear to what extent natural menopause affects memory, or whether this is a consequence of normal aging. Right now, we dont have much evidence to show that natural menopause affects memory or mental function. It may be that the hot flashes and/or sleep disturbances that come with menopause are affecting memory and concentration. However, there is some evidence that experiencing a sudden medical menopause can have an adverse effect on memory. Researchers are still working to figure out how estrogen levels impact mental functioning and memory. Its certainly conceivable that when your estrogen levels are low, or you are taking a drug that blocks the effects of estrogen (such as tamoxifen), your brain cells ability to receive, communicate, and store information may be reduced, resulting in decreased memory. At the same time, other factors ...
It has consistently been reported that negative subsequent memory effects-lower study activity for later remembered than later forgotten items-are attenuated in older individuals. The present functional magnetic resonance imaging study investigated whether these findings extend to subsequent memory effects associated with successful encoding of item-context information. Older (n = 25) and young (n = 17) subjects were scanned while making 1 of 2 encoding judgments on a series of pictures. Memory was assessed for the study item and, for items judged old, the items encoding task. Both memory judgments were made using confidence ratings, permitting item and source memory strength to be unconfounded and source confidence to be equated across age groups. Replicating prior findings, negative item effects in regions of the default mode network in young subjects were reversed in older subjects. Negative source effects, however, were invariant with respect to age and, in both age groups, the magnitude ...
TY - CONF. T1 - Mathematical Anxiety influences the cortical connectivity profiles in lower alpha band during working memory tasks. AU - Bayrak, Şeyma. AU - Margulies, Daniel. AU - Bamidis, Panagiotis. AU - Klados, Manousos A.. PY - 2016/7/30. Y1 - 2016/7/30. N2 - Introduction Highly math-anxious (HMA) individuals are characterized by a strong tendency to avoid math, which ultimately undercuts their math competence and forecloses important career paths (Ashcraft, 2002). It is hypothesized that worries and intrusive thoughts associated with math anxiety (MA) reduce working memory resources needed for cognitively demanding math tasks (Chang & Beilock, 2016). However, mental processes that access the memory representations of mathematical knowledge has not been fully uncovered (Ashcraft, 2001). Previous studies indicate that the frontal cortex is dominantly involved in working memory (WM) and more specifically while updating the working memory representations (Smith & Jonides, 1997). Additionally, ...
Propranolol administered immediately after learning or after recall has been found to impair memory consolidation or reconsolidation (respectively) in animals, but less reliably so in humans. Since reconsolidation impairment has been proposed as a treatment for mental disorders that have at their core an emotional memory, it is desirable to understand how to reliably reduce the strength of pathogenic memories in humans. We postulated that since humans (unlike experimental animals) typically receive propranolol orally, this introduces a delay before this drug can exert its memory impairment effects, which may render it less effective. As a means to test this, in two double-blind placebo-controlled experiments, we examined the capacity of propranolol to impair consolidation and reconsolidation as a function of timing of ingestion in healthy subjects. In Experiment 1, (n=36), propranolol administered immediately after learning or recall failed to impair the consolidation or reconsolidation of the ...
The ability of the nervous system to retain, manipulate and use visual information which is no longer present in the external environment contributes to intelligent behaviour. A new approach to studying visual working memory has led to re-evaluation of the nature of its limitations in keeping with a finite memory resource which is flexibly distributed across space according to attentional priority. Using a novel behavioural paradigm to study visual working memory precision for sequentially presented items, I demonstrate how the resolution with which healthy subjects recall simple objects changes dynamically with each new item in the sequence. Stochastic modelling of the distribution of responses suggested that memory for earlier objects in the sequence was especially prone to failure in integration of visual features, such as orientation and colour, into complete objects. Next, I examined how memory precision was affected by attentional selection according to the relative behavioural relevance ...
From: FEBRUARY 5 , 2004. CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- MIT neuroscientists have discovered a new brain mechanism controlling the formation of lasting memories. This mechanism explains how signals between neurons stimulate production of the protein building blocks needed for long-term memory storage. The study, which will appear in the Feb. 6 issue of the journal Cell, has broad implications for our understanding of how learning and memory normally occur, and how these abilities may be undermined in psychiatric and neurologic diseases. Long-lasting memories are stored in the brain through strengthening of the connections, or synapses, between neurons. Researchers have known for many years that neurons must turn on the synthesis of new proteins for long-term memory storage and synaptic strengthening to occur, but the mechanisms by which neurons accomplish these tasks have remained elusive. The MIT research team, led by Nobel laureate Susumu Tonegawa, ...

Activated naive B cells that seed a GC and undergo SHM, Ig isotype switching, and selection by a specific Ag can differentiate into memory B cells or plasma cells. It is generally accepted that the processes of SHM and isotype switching are markers of memory B cells. In human tonsils, memory B cells were historically identified by the loss of IgD together with other markers such as CD38 (5, 10, 11, 17). The case for using IgD and CD38 to separate memory (IgD−CD38−) from naive (IgD+CD38−) and GC (IgD−CD38+) B cells was supported by the finding that the majority of tonsil IgD+ cells expressed unmutated IgV region genes, while those expressed by IgD− cells were mutated (5, 11, 25, 26). Studies using these markers demonstrated that although both naive and memory B cells were in a quiescent state, memory cells exhibited enhanced responses compared to naive B cells in vitro (10, 17, 18, 19, 20). Together, these articles established a scheme to identify human memory B cells.. However, ...

  • There are also three skill levels to choose from so as your child's memory builds, they can skip the easier sections. (
  • Spatial memory recall is built upon a hierarchical structure. (
  • Recall in memory refers to the mental process of retrieval of information from the past. (
  • Psychologists test these forms of recall as a way to study the memory processes of humans [1] and animals. (
  • For example, if one is to learn about a topic and study it in a specific location, but take their exam in a different setting, they would not have had as much of a successful memory recall as if they were in the location that they learned and studied the topic in. (
  • [6] Recall is a major part of the study of memory and often comes into play in all research. (
  • For this reason, the main studies on memory in general will also provide a history to the study of recall. (
  • [7] Ebbinghaus' research influenced much of the research conducted on memory and recall throughout the twentieth century. (
  • Hallucinogens (like LSD or PCP) can alter certain chemicals in the brain that actually make memories harder to recall. (
  • One question is whether melody could provide an extra cue to jog people's memory, helping them recall foreign words and phrases more easily. (
  • Short-term memory allows recall for a period of several seconds to a minute without rehearsal. (
  • Other experiments performed within the study found that MgT treatment boosted memory recall under partial information conditions in older rats but had no effect in young rats. (
  • But in other instances, they challenged the women to suppress those memories and deliberately not recall the original picture pairs. (
  • Here's a four-step memory technique that will enable you to store information for later recall. (
  • Whenever you want to recall Mark's name, you'll first "see" your association (old friend or the X on his face), which will trigger the memory of the name, "Mark. (
  • Hearing the name helps lock in auditory recall and will assist "parking" the information into long-term memory. (
  • You may not be able to remember new events, recall one or more memories of the past, or both. (
  • Under declarative memory resides semantic and episodic memory. (
  • Semantic memory refers to memory that is encoded with specific meaning, while episodic memory refers to information that is encoded along a spatial and temporal plane. (
  • Areas of the brain that are required for the formation of spatial representations of the environment include the hippocampus and surrounding medial temporal lobes , which are also known to play a key role in episodic memory (the memory system for specific events). (
  • The particular kind of memory on which most recent work has focused has gone by a number of names, but, adopting Tulving's (1972, 1985a) psychological terminology, philosophers increasingly refer to it as "episodic" (e.g. (
  • Episodic memory is, roughly, memory for the events of the personal past, and, starting at least with Aristotle (Sorabji 2006) and continuing with early modern philosophers including Locke (1998), Hume ([1739] 2011), and Reid ([1785] 2002), philosophers have singled episodic memory out for special attention on the ground that it provides the rememberer with a unique form of access to past events. (
  • Due, perhaps, to their focus on episodic memory, philosophers have generally approached memory as a capacity exercised by single individuals. (
  • More recently, memory has come to be recognized as a topic of major philosophical importance in its own right, with the emergence of the philosophy of memory as a distinct field of research (Bernecker & Michaelian 2017). (
  • Yet to set up even the basic structures requires memory as even the physical page allocator, discussed in the next chapter, needs to allocate memory to initialise itself. (
  • But how can the physical page allocator allocate memory to initialise itself? (
  • In order to not bother the programmer with allocations, JavaScript will automatically allocate memory when values are initially declared. (
  • s2 is a new string // Since strings are immutable values, // JavaScript may decide to not allocate memory, // but just store the [0, 3] range. (
  • and related functions allocate memory from the "current" context. (
  • to allocate memory for your return object. (
  • It is assumed that if merge eight bit storage cells in the byte with a parallel access, we can reach speeds of 80 Mbps, but this method requires appropriate scheme-Tech realization of the memory subsystem. (
  • This metric represents how efficiently the memory subsystem was used by the application. (
  • This test stresses both the host processor and memory subsystem. (
  • A device that zaps the brain with electricity has improved people's scores on memory tests. (
  • We wanted to test the power of photographic editing to warp people's memories. (
  • Declarative memory is usually the primary process thought of when referencing memory. (
  • They have dichotomized it along various dimensions such as: primary and secondary memory (James 1898), sensory, short-term and long-term memory (Atkinson & Shiffrin 1968), procedural and declarative memory (e.g. (
  • Singing in a foreign language can significantly improve learning how to speak it, according to a new study published in Springer's journal Memory & Cognition . (
  • The inability to ignore irrelevant stimuli underlies the impaired working memory and cognition often experienced by individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, reports a new study in the current issue of Biological Psychiatry . (
  • Rather it emphasizes the inseparable nature of the cognition-memory compound. (
  • the current context is restored to the upper executor context, and all allocations made in the procedure memory context are freed and cannot be used any more. (
  • In contrast, JavaScript automatically allocates memory when objects are created and frees it when they are not used anymore ( garbage collection ). (
  • PostgreSQL allocates memory within memory contexts , which provide a convenient method of managing allocations made in many different places that need to live for differing amounts of time. (
  • Now since the content at location X is known to be altered by rootkits in general, most anti-rootkit tools will inspect the content at memory location X to see if it has been modified. (
  • Immunologists may have donned an intellectual straitjacket in their search for the memory cell. (
  • memory frequently has to linearly searched to satisfy an allocation. (
  • The allocation and free routines will then be discussed before finally talking about how the boot memory allocator is retired. (
  • The purpose of a garbage collector is to monitor memory allocation and determine when a block of allocated memory is no longer needed and reclaim it. (
  • If 4GB is installed on a 32-bit operating system, the recognized memory may be reduced to 3.5GB or less (depending on system configuration and memory allocation). (
  • Name of the shared memory buffer for which this allocation was made. (
  • The SQLite core uses these three routines for all of its own internal memory allocation needs. (
  • The sqlite3_realloc(X,N) interface attempts to resize a prior memory allocation X to be at least N bytes. (
  • If X is a memory allocation previously obtained from sqlite3_malloc(), sqlite3_malloc64(), sqlite3_realloc(), or sqlite3_realloc64(), then sqlite3_msize(X) returns the size of that memory allocation in bytes. (
  • If X points to something that is not the beginning of memory allocation, or if it points to a formerly valid memory allocation that has now been freed, then the behavior of sqlite3_msize(X) is undefined and possibly harmful. (
  • In SQLite version 3.5.0 and 3.5.1, it was possible to define the SQLITE_OMIT_MEMORY_ALLOCATION which would cause the built-in implementation of these routines to be omitted. (
  • Memory allocation errors were detected, but they were reported back as SQLITE_CANTOPEN or SQLITE_IOERR rather than SQLITE_NOMEM . (
  • Argument size contains the size in bytes of the memory image. (
  • In the word-organized scheme, complete nybbles, bytes, or words are stored within a single component, whereas with bit-organized memory, each bit of a byte or word is allocated to a separate component ( Figure 1-10 ). (
  • Amount, in bytes, of memory in use in this buffer. (
  • If retrieves the memory usage either in percent (without the percent sign) or in bytes by returning an array with free and overall memory of your system. (
  • Another useful function provided by libc is malloc_usable_size(), which returns the number of bytes you actually can use in a previously allocated memory block. (
  • This means you could write up to 36 bytes to that memory block without overwriting other blocks. (
  • The sqlite3_malloc() routine returns a pointer to a block of memory at least N bytes in length, where N is the parameter. (
  • You may have heard about a memory problem called amnesia (say: am-NEE-zhuh). (

  • The hippocampus (say: hih-puh-KAM-pus) is one of the more important parts of the brain that processes memories. (
  • Also, the storage process can become corrupted by physical damage to areas of the brain that are associated with memory storage, such as the hippocampus. (
  • They found that in young and old rats, MgT increased plasticity, or strength, among synapses and promoted the density of synapses in the hippocampus, a part of the brain that plays important roles in spatial navigation and long-term memory. (
  • The significance of the hippocampus to spatial memory is illustrated by the severe disruption in the learning of goal location and navigation to the goal that occurs when the hippocampus is damaged. (
  • Originally reported by Deese (1959) and replicated by Roediger and McDermott (1995), it is possible to create illusory memories for words that do not appear in the word lists subjects have to study. (
  • Since it didn't take a stab at AMD's boost clock rates, Intel locked its own Skylake cores to a similar 2.2 GHz and conducted a series of memory/cache latency and memory/PCIe bandwidth tests. (
  • Our reduced-latency DRAM (RLDRAM ® memory) is a high-performance, high-density memory solution that offers fast SRAM-like random access and outpaces even leading-edge DDR3 for sustained high bandwidth. (
  • This test is not sensitive to memory bandwidth or latency, so the gains we measure should be trivial. (
  • EPYC has eight memory channels, outnumbering Purley's six, and supports up to 2TB of memory per processor. (
  • AMD offsets those penalties by establishing four different NUMA (Non-Uniform Memory Access) nodes per EPYC processor, or eight nodes per dual-socket server. (

  • Memory is often understood as an informational processing system with explicit and implicit functioning that is made up of a sensory processor, short-term (or working) memory, and long-term memory. (
  • Working memory serves as an encoding and retrieval processor. (
  • Information in the form of stimuli is encoded in accordance with explicit or implicit functions by the working memory processor. (
  • Memory is not a perfect processor, and is affected by many factors. (
  • Memory forensics is the study of operating systems, which in turn work extensively with the processor and its architecture. (
  • Faster memory will clock down to run at optimal speed depending on processor model installed. (
  • Note: To achieve these configurations, you may need to factor in any pre-installed memory or the specific processor model in your server. (
  • Memory is used to hold data and software for the processor. (
  • This perpetual need for refreshing requires additional support and also can delay processor access to the memory. (
  • The processor is capable of rapidly reloading the caches from main memory should a cache miss occur. (
  • This includes hardware integration to connect the Optane memory with the CHREC-Space-Processor and SHREC-Space-Processor, education on the very recently released persistent memory development kit to make high-performance programs which take advantage of persistent memory, education on our group's published techniques in memory reliability, and hardware preparation for future DRAM and Optane radiation tests. (
  • For instance, performance on a working memory but not on a short-term memory task was affected by articulatory suppression suggesting that impairment on the spatial task was caused by the concurrent performance on a task that had extensive use of executive resources. (
  • However, memory impairment in schizophrenia may be related in part to a problem with this filtering process, which Dr. Teal Eich at Columbia University and her colleagues studied. (
  • In severe cases, such memory impairment may interfere with daily living activities. (
  • It is thought that the brain needs these proteins to convert short-term memories into long-term memories through a process known as consolidation. (
  • Research indicates that there are specific areas of the brain associated with spatial memory. (
  • It's your memory - and it's part of your complex and multitalented brain. (
  • If your brain judges the information important, it places it in your memory "files. (
  • Old information and new information, or memories, are thought to be processed and stored away in different areas of the cerebral cortex , or the "gray matter" of the brain - the largest, outermost part of the brain. (
  • At any age, an injury to the head and brain can cause trouble with somebody's memory. (
  • Abusing alcohol or using illegal drugs is another way to injure the brain and cause memory problems. (
  • Memory is the faculty of the brain by which data or information is encoded, stored, and retrieved when needed. (
  • Normal functioning, decay over time, and brain damage all affect the accuracy and capacity of the memory. (
  • In the study, published Jan. 28 in Neuron , neuroscientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Tsinghua University in Beijing found that increasing brain magnesium using a newly developed compound, magnesium-L-threonate (MgT), improves learning abilities, working memory, and short- and-long-term memory in rats. (
  • Spatial memory , the storage and retrieval of information within the brain that is needed both to plan a route to a desired location and to remember where an object is located or where an event occurred. (
  • The brain scans showed that different areas of the brain were active when the women remembered the facial pairs, compared with when the women suppressed those memories. (
  • In particular, they focused on analyzing potential activation differences in the ventro-lateral prefrontal cortex (VLPFC), a region of the brain implicated in working memory. (
  • With a few simple tools, proper care, and feeding however, anyone (who hasn't suffered permanent brain damage) can improve their memory power. (
  • But that difference only piques the interest of some neurologists who are looking at how memories form in the human brain from the first moments in life through the later stages of dementia. (
  • How do stem cells, the very early cells in the brain, encrypt memory in the brain? (
  • Many areas of the brain help you create and retrieve memories. (
  • Low-level languages like C, have manual memory management primitives such as malloc() and free() . (
  • The latter, in turn, is divided into heap space, where malloc()'d memory comes from, and stack, where functions' temporary work space is placed. (
  • For very large requests, malloc() uses the mmap() system call to find addressable memory space. (
  • Library functions that deal with dynamic memory are not limited to malloc() and free(), although these are by far the most-used calls. (
  • First, check your memory usage statistics by using either the malloc_stats() or the mallinfo() library calls. (
  • If sqlite3_malloc() is unable to obtain sufficient free memory, it returns a NULL pointer. (
  • Calling sqlite3_free() with a pointer previously returned by sqlite3_malloc() or sqlite3_realloc() releases that memory so that it might be reused. (
  • The memory returned by sqlite3_malloc(), sqlite3_realloc(), sqlite3_malloc64(), and sqlite3_realloc64() is always aligned to at least an 8 byte boundary, or to a 4 byte boundary if the SQLITE_4_BYTE_ALIGNED_MALLOC compile-time option is used. (
  • Non-declarative, or implicit, memory is the unconscious storage and recollection of information. (
  • The program as it resides in main memory references itself directly and so contains implicit knowledge about the structure and organization of the physical memory. (
  • Symmetric behavior is adopted when memory is freed by the process. (
  • You can alter the behavior of the memory management functions by adjusting some of the parameters exposed by the mallopt() function (Listings 1 and 2). (

  • In cognitive psychology and neuroscience, spatial memory is the part of memory responsible for recording information about one's environment and spatial orientation. (
  • For example, a person's spatial memory is required in order to navigate around a familiar city, just as a rat's spatial memory is needed to learn the location of food at the end of a maze. (
  • Spatial memory has representations within working, short-term memory and long-term memory. (
  • Many methods are used for measuring spatial memory in children, adults, and animals. (
  • Spatial memory is a cognitive process that enables a person to remember different locations as well as spatial relations between objects. (
  • However, much of the research into the visuo-spatial memory construct have been conducted in accordance to the paradigm advanced by Baddeley and Hitch. (
  • Finding one's way around an environment and remembering where things are within it are crucial everyday processes that rely on spatial memory . (
  • Various approaches have been used to elucidate the involvement of these areas in spatial memory. (
  • The future of false memories. (
  • This prevailing perspective considers phenomena like false memories as aberrations that can and should be minimized (e.g. (
  • The perhaps most sensational aspect of false memories was described by Elizabeth Loftus and colleagues (e.g. (
  • In addition to these "confabulation" (defined as fantasies that have unconsciously modified or even replaced facts in memory based on past-event suggestions) the scientific literature knows further examples of false memories. (
  • In other words, memory is improved when information available at encoding is also available at retrieval. (
  • An example of a non-declarative process would be the unconscious learning or retrieval of information by way of procedural memory, or a priming phenomenon. (
  • Finally, the retrieval of information from long-term memory can be disrupted because of decay within long-term memory. (
  • The design of the task allowed for the assessment of the various components of working memory: 1) maintaining the memory itself, 2) inhibiting or ignoring irrelevant information, and 3) during memory retrieval, controlling the interference of irrelevant information. (
  • The mainstream conception of memory as an encoding-storage-retrieval device is criticized for not being able to account for various phenomena such as false recognition, intrusion, and confabulation. (
  • However, this common understanding of memory as an encoding-storage-retrieval device places us next to computers: Like their memory, we too are expected (from others as well as from ourselves) to remember data and events accurately, whether at school, in quiz shows, or in the supermarket. (
  • Two important European research consortium had meetings with analysts to discuss their activities, including new memory technologies at the 2019 IEEE IEDM conference put on by the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS). (

  • Intel® Optane™ memory redirects power and data to your most-used programs, so they run quickly, delivering remarkable responsiveness so you can get things done. (
  • You need a computer with Intel® Optane™ memory that preloads frequently used files and intelligently focuses resources on the applications you need. (
  • Intel's Optane Memory is an exciting new memory with many implications for next-generation computing systems and space applications. (
  • We will educate and train the students in the integration of Optane memory into a real system. (
  • Short-term memory (STM) can be described as a system allowing one to temporarily store and manage information that is necessary to complete complex cognitive tasks. (

  • Learn when to implement triage, live system analysis, and alternative acquisition techniques, as well as how to devise custom parsing scripts for targeted memory analysis. (
  • Regardless of the type of investigation, system memory and its contents often expose the "first hit" - the evidential thread that we pull to unravel the whole story of what happened on the target system. (
  • This could be on a visitor facing page, or a system page (like the infamously memory hogging Drupal module listing page). (
  • The advantage is that, as opposed to the previous scheme, knowledge of the memory-system organization is not exposed to the program. (
  • An example of a physical addressing system is the operating system for the original Macintosh, which did not have the benefit of a memory-management unit. (
  • Simply enter the make and model number or system part number of the computer system or digital device to find the memory you need. (
  • There is a variety of memory types, and often a mix is used within a single system. (
  • RAM is the "working memory" in the computer system. (
  • FB-DIMM connections should enable systems to scale the number of memory channels available to a server system. (
  • Rootkits typically modify certain areas in the memory of the running operating system (OS) to hijack execution control from the OS. (
  • I'm not an operating system or virtualization expert, but my understanding is that if you're running a hypervisor under the actual OS that thinks it's in charge, redirecting reads for a particular block of memory depending on who is trying to read them isn't all that surprising. (
  • But intuitively, many people expect to get the memory usage of the system, based on the name of the function. (
  • When a process needs memory, some room is created by moving the upper bound of the heap forward, using the brk() or sbrk() system calls. (
  • Because a system call is expensive in terms of CPU usage, a better strategy is to call brk() to grab a large chunk of memory and then split it as needed to get smaller chunks. (
  • Memory blocks are not immediately returned to the system, which would require a new brk() call with a negative argument. (
  • Despite these considerable advantages, the device has write limitations, and thus the system must be intelligently controlled to extend the lifetime of these memories as much as possible. (
  • The researchers concluded with the explanation that the central executive employs cognitive strategies enabling participants to both encode and maintain mental representations during short-term memory tasks. (

  • In a study of 100 of pregnant women in the Netherlands, researchers say they found evidence that fetuses have short-term memory of sounds by the 30th week of pregnancy, and develop a long-term memory of sound after that . (
  • The researchers documented the memory by watching fetal movements with ultrasound while they played "vibroacoustic" sound to the growing baby . (
  • While researchers have long documented "habituation" of the fetus -- an experiment with car horns and pregnant women in the 1920s was the first to do so -- child development specialists might not all agree that this is a form of memory as everyday people think of it. (
  • But Strauss was intrigued that the fetal memory could last that either 10 minutes, or even four weeks, as the researchers suggested. (
  • While researchers strive to figure out the mechanics of memory, child development experts say studies like these may encourage parents to keep the earliest of environments in mind. (
  • NIST researchers are developing metrologies to quantify how each of these contributes to the superconducting transport in hybrid memory devices, most recently as part of the IARPA Cryogenic Computing Complexity program, which aims to incorporate such devices with single flux quantum electronics, see . (
  • The interdisciplinary character of the field notwithstanding, the concerns of philosophers of memory remain distinct from those of memory researchers in other disciplines, and, while this entry discusses the latter where they are of direct philosophical relevance, its focus is squarely on the former. (
  • Three core areas of activity can nevertheless be discerned, with most researchers approaching memory from the perspectives of philosophy of mind, epistemology, or ethics. (
  • Someone who has a memory problem will be unable to remember important things for varying lengths of time. (
  • It is impractical to statically initialise all the core kernel memory structures at compile time as there are simply far too many permutations of hardware configurations. (
  • Short-term memory comprises the extremely limited number of items that humans are capable of keeping in mind at one time, whereas executive attention is a function that regulates the quantity and type of information that is either accepted into or blocked from short-term memory. (
  • The data accumulated during this period which have vastly increased our understanding of memory have at the same time highlighted unresolved problems that could block further progress in the field. (

  • Washington, DC- The Memory of Time: Contemporary Photographs at the National Gallery of Art, Acquired with the Alfred H. Moses and Fern M. Schad Fund , on view in the West Building from May 3 through September 13, 2015, will explore the complexity of the medium's relationship to time, memory, and history. (
  • The Memory of Time is one of three stellar exhibitions that will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the National Gallery of Art's photography program. (
  • Photography, once understood as verifying specific facts, capturing singular moments of time, and preserving explicit memories, is now recognized to have a multifaceted and slippery relationship to the truth and to the past. (
  • By embracing this complexity, contemporary artists have placed photography at the center of a renewed discussion around the construction of history and memory and the perception of time. (
  • Divided into five sections, The Memory of Time examines work made from the early 1990s to the present by artists who explore these complex issues. (

  • I cherish the places I may walk that my father walked and that I walk with my son and daughter, three generations absolutely joined in place and time and memory. (
  • All these approaches are based on the mainstream definition of memory: "The term memory implies the capacity to encode, store, and retrieve information" (Baddeley 2001, p. 514), or as Heinz von Foerster critically put it, one expects "a certain invariance of quality of that which is stored at one time and then retrieved at a later time" (Foerster 1969, p. 102). (
  • A process' memory usually is classified as either static, the size is predetermined at compile time, or dynamic, space is allocated as needed at runtime. (
  • For instance, the ability to work on a complicated mathematical problem utilizes one's working memory. (
  • The working memory also retrieves information from previously stored material. (
  • Virtual memory is a model - one of many possible models - for managing the resource of physical memory, or main memory. (
  • Such management is necessary because a microprocessor, the heart of a computer, has direct access only to main memory, while all programs and data are stored on permanent media such as hard disks. (
  • Reading or writing main memory is as simple as executing a single computer instruction. (
  • Therefore, accessing a file or running a program requires that the data on disk first be moved into main memory. (
  • A program sees itself exactly as it resides in main memory. (
  • The disadvantage is that the program must be divided into a relatively small number of contiguous segments, and each segment must fit entirely in main memory if it is to be used. (
  • If the translation granularity is relatively small (that is, the program is broken down into smaller pieces that are translated independently of each other), the program can even be fragmented in main memory. (
  • Bits and pieces of the program can lie scattered throughout main memory, and the program need not be entirely resident to execute. (
  • You access the this command by clicking New Memory Initialization File on the Intel ® Quartus ® Prime menu. (
  • Intel claims that EPYC's memory access will suffer due to AMD's multi-die implementation. (
  • According to Intel, that reduces per-core local memory bandwidth to 42.6 GB/s, which is in-line with AMD's per-channel 21.3 GB/s bandwidth specification (170 GB/s per socket). (
  • According to Intel, EPYC's per-core PCIe bandwidth outweighs what the memory controller can do, creating an imbalance when copying data into memory. (
  • Intel also believes the 50 GB/s interconnect bandwidth (which AMD officially specifies at 42.6 GB/s) creates contention and restricts EPYC's usable PCIe and memory bandwidth across different dies and sockets. (

  • Spatial memories are said to form after a person has already gathered and processed sensory information about her or his environment. (
  • Sensory memory holds information, derived from the senses, less than one second after an item is perceived. (
  • The ability to look at an item and remember what it looked like with just a split second of observation, or memorization, is the example of sensory memory. (
  • The first precise experiments exploring this form of sensory memory were conducted by George Sperling (1963) using the "partial report paradigm. (
  • Based on these partial report experiments, Sperling was able to show that the capacity of sensory memory was approximately 12 items, but that it degraded very quickly (within a few hundred milliseconds). (
  • Three types of sensory memories exist. (
  • Iconic memory is a fast decaying store of visual information, a type of sensory memory that briefly stores an image that has been perceived for a small duration. (

  • Background processes populate data from storage into in-memory columns while the database remains fully active and accessible. (
  • The slowest component of completing the unit of work will be accessing data in tables on a disk, physical I/O. To try to reduce physical I/O and instead use logical I/O, SQL Server will try to hold data in memory based on its own calculations on what data should be held and how recently the data was last accessed. (
  • It would be better for you to be able to define to SQL Server which tables are so important that the data they hold should be permanently held in memory. (
  • Up to and including SQL Server 2012, the only way to achieve holding data permanently within memory was to pin a table to being held in memory. (
  • SQL Server used disk-based optimizations as the table was on disk, but from SQL Server 2014 it is possible to define a table to permanently reside in-memory, and it now also has its own database optimized engine to fully utilize in-memory held data. (
  • Virtual memory is one method for handling this management of data. (
  • In the DRAM case, it would take eight chips to complete a memory block for an 8-bit data bus, whereas the SRAM requires only one chip. (
  • These caches are often internal to the processors and are implemented with fast memory cells and high-speed data paths. (
  • Hook into the interrupt vectors, for instance, and set page protection up so if something executed the hook it used what the virus had planted there but a normal read (non-execution) of the memory triggered a fault that let the virus substitute the original data so someone scanning the interrupt vector memory wouldn't see the virus's hook in place.

  • This particular rootkit also modifies a memory location (installs a hook) to prevent proper disk access by detection software. (
  • The memory manager implements virtual memory, provides a core set of services such as memory mapped files, copy-on-write memory, large memory support, and underlying support for the cache manager. (
  • By memory suppression, they mean the deliberate, conscious choice to suppress certain memories. (
  • What is critically important to recognize, however, is that these memories are not conscious or introspective voluntary memories they way an older child or adult thinks about past experiences," said Strauss. (
  • This chapter will begin with a description of the structure the allocator uses to describe the physical memory available for each node. (
  • We will then illustrate how the limits of physical memory and the sizes of each zone are discovered before talking about how the information is used to initialised the boot memory allocator structures. (
  • What lies in physical memory can provide answers to all of these questions and more. (
  • So on day one of FOR526, we will acquire a full capture of physical memory from a compromised virtual machine using two different methods. (
  • In the simplest model of program creation and execution, physical addressing, a programmer determines what physical memory is available, reserves it so that no one else uses it, and writes a program to use the reserved memory locations. (
  • If the location of the program in physical memory is a variable stored in a known hardware register, at runtime one can load the program wherever it fits in physical memory and place this location information in the known register so that all memory references first incorporate this base address and are then redirected to the correct physical location. (
  • A third model, virtual addressing, involves writing the program as if it is loaded at physical memory location zero, loading the program wherever it fits (not necessarily location zero), and using some as-yet-undefined mechanism to translate the program's addresses to the equivalent physical addresses while it is running. (
  • Finally, an analysis of the systems' similarities leads to a discussion of the requirements of a common denominator for physical memory management: flexible virtual memory that can be tailored to best suit the needs of various systems. (
  • Get free physical memory (this is in kibibytes! (
  • Radiation experiments performed on the devices by both our group and NASA indicate the phase-change material (PCM) comprising the physical memory has considerable inherent resilience to radiation. (
  • The synthesis of proteins is an essential step in many biological processes, including memory, and drugs that inhibit protein synthesis are known to impair memory in rodents. (
  • One highly influential theory of WM is the Baddeley and Hitch multi-component model of working memory. (
  • Baddeley likened working memory to a scratch pad in which essential pieces of information are inscribed and later discarded (or, as is more likely the case, replaced by more pertinent information). (
  • Overall, the patients showed altered VLPFC functioning and significant impairments in their ability to control working memory. (
  • Kirshner HS, Ally B. Intellectual and memory impairments. (
  • Along with encoding and storage , it is one of the three core processes of memory. (
  • The more severe the illness or injury, the longer the memory loss is likely to last. (
  • Even reading previously freed memory might result in a segmentation fault or other severe error. (
  • The following example creates a new WebAssembly Memory instance with an initial size of 10 pages (640KiB), and a maximum size of 100 pages (6.4MiB). (
  • creates a new memory context and makes it current. (
  • Polymer memory refers to memory technologies based on the use of organic polymers. (
  • memory_get_usage() is used to retrieve the memory allocated to PHP only (or your running script). (
  • Known as " working memory capacity," this ability is measured most often through a test that requires people to commit a short list of items to memory while performing some other task. (
  • The capacity of working memory is measured by the number of items that a person recalls, so that if a person recalls five letters, the working memory capacity in this case is five. (
  • Such tests of working-memory capacity can be used to predict an individual's ability to perform tasks involved in reasoning . (
  • In fact, working memory capacity is strongly related to general intelligence. (
  • Other memory devices will be high capacity, yet will require additional support circuitry and will be slower to access. (
  • Still other memory devices will trade capacity for speed, giving relatively small devices, yet are capable of keeping up with the fastest of processors. (
  • Their relatively low capacity requires more chips to be used to implement the same size memory. (
  • Dynamic RAMs are the highest capacity memory devices available and come in a wide and diverse variety of subspecies. (
  • In 1956, George A. Miller (1920-2012), when working at Bell Laboratories, conducted experiments showing that the store of short-term memory was 7±2 items. (
  • False recognition describes the effect that subjects claim that a novel word or event is familiar, and intrusions refer to the production of non-studied information in memory experiments (e.g. (
  • The rest of this section describes the task of memory management and outlines various motivations for flexibility. (
  • Tasks which employ short-term memory include learning, reasoning, and comprehension. (
  • Research into the exact function of the visuo-spatial sketchpad has indicated that both spatial short-term memory and working memory are dependent on executive resources and are not entirely distinct. (
  • Short-term memory is also known as working memory. (
  • short-term memory and "executive attention. (
  • In its role of managing information in short-term memory, executive attention is highly effective in blocking potentially distracting information from the focus of attention. (
  • Most people are capable of storing a maximum of about seven separate units of information in short-term memory-e.g., the seven random letters F, L, I, X, T, Z, R. Thus, one may consult a directory for a 10-digit telephone number but forget some of the digits before one has finished dialing. (
  • Then we overcome it by introducing a novel, efficient method called 'Long Short Term Memory' (LSTM). (
  • This automaticity is a potential source of confusion: it can give developers the false impression that they don't need to worry about memory management. (
  • The majority of memory management issues occur at this phase. (
  • Some high-level languages, such as JavaScript, utilize a form of automatic memory management known as garbage collection (GC). (
  • Within the context of memory management, an object is said to reference another object if the former has access to the latter (either implicitly or explicitly). (
  • Memory management in the Zend Engine is deceptively simple. (
  • and virtual addressing is typically implemented on microprocessors with memory-management units (MMUs). (
  • This dynamic management view can be used to determine the shared memory usage of a full-text population. (
  • This paper presents a variety of memory management systems, ranging from virtual memory to file systems and databases. (
  • The diverse needs of a broad range of clients have caused each of these systems to provide some kind of flexible memory management. (
  • The strategy adopted by the C library memory management code is optimized for generic memory usage profiles. (
  • the first, reported below, details the proceedings of the workgroup addressing the working memory Construct within the Cognitive Systems Domain. (
  • Because this form of memory degrades so quickly, participants would see the display but be unable to report all of the items (12 in the "whole report" procedure) before they decayed. (
  • As animals navigate the world, they store information about their surroundings to form a coherent spatial representation of the environment in memory. (
  • To test it I made a simple HTML-page with nothing but the Memory Scroller script, which I copied directly form DD, in the body. (
  • Memory-in the form of human-rights groups-repeats the figure of 30,000 victims. (
  • Likewise, Whittington said that AMD's integrated memory controller and Hyper Transport may not "provide enough marketing hype to counter Intel's position and secure design-wins. (
  • Without doubts, such "memory distortions" have a great impact on assessing the reliability of eyewitness testimonies. (
