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 ...
Attentional orienting and memory are intrinsically bound, but their interaction has rarely been investigated. Here we introduce an experimental paradigm using naturalistic scenes to investigate how long-term memory can guide spatial attention and thereby enhance identification of events in the perceptual domain. In the task, stable memories of objects embedded within complex scenes guide spatial orienting. We compared the behavioral effects and neural systems of memory-guided orienting with those in a more traditional attention-orienting task in which transient spatial cues guide attention. Memory-guided attention operated within surprisingly short intervals and conferred reliable and sizeable advantages for detection of objects embedded in scenes. Event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging showed that memory-guided attention involves the interaction between brain areas participating in retrieval of memories for spatial context with the parietal-frontal network for visual spatial orienting.
In everyday situations, we often rely on our memories to find what we are looking for in our cluttered environment. Recently, we developed a new experimental paradigm to investigate how long-term memory (LTM) can guide attention and showed how the pre-exposure to a complex scene in which a target location had been learned facilitated the detection of the transient appearance of the target at the remembered location [Summerfield, J. J., Rao, A., Garside, N., & Nobre, A. C. Biasing perception by spatial long-term memory. The Journal of Neuroscience, 31, 14952-14960, 2011; Summerfield, J. J., Lepsien, J., Gitelman, D. R., Mesulam, M. M., & Nobre, A. C. Orienting attention based on long-term memory experience. Neuron, 49, 905-916, 2006]. This study extends these findings by investigating whether and how LTM can enhance perceptual sensitivity to identify targets occurring within their complex scene context. Behavioral measures showed superior perceptual sensitivity (d) for targets located in remembered

Some theories consider sleep to be an important factor in establishing well-organized long-term memories. (See also sleep and learning.) Sleep plays a key function in the consolidation of new memories.[11] According to Tarnows theory, long-term memories are stored in dream format (reminiscent of the Penfield & Rasmussens findings that electrical excitations of the cortex give rise to experiences similar to dreams). During waking life an executive function interprets long-term memory consistent with reality checking (Tarnow 2003). It is further proposed in the theory that the information stored in memory, no matter how it was learned, can affect performance on a particular task without the subject being aware that this memory is being used. Newly acquired declarative memory traces are believed to be reactivated during NonREM sleep to promote their hippocampo-neocortical transfer for long-term storage.[12] Specifically new declarative memories are better remembered if recall follows Stage II ...
BACKGROUND: Memories are not created equally strong or persistent for different experiences. In Drosophila, induction of long-term memory (LTM) for aversive olfactory conditioning requires ten spaced repetitive training trials, whereas a single trial is sufficient for LTM generation in appetitive olfactory conditioning. Although, with the ease of genetic manipulation, many genes and brain structures have been related to LTM formation, it is still an important task to identify new components and reveal the mechanisms underlying LTM regulation. RESULTS: Here we show that single-trial induction of LTM can also be achieved for aversive olfactory conditioning through inhibition of highwire (hiw)-encoded E3 ubiquitin ligase activity or activation of its targeted proteins in a cluster of neurons, localized within the α/β core region of the mushroom body. Moreover, the synaptic output of these neurons is critical within a limited posttraining interval for permitting consolidation of both aversive and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Chronically skipping breakfast impairs hippocampal memory-related gene expression and memory function accompanied by reduced wakefulness and body temperature in mice. AU - Okauchi, Hiroki. AU - Higo-Yamamoto, Sayaka. AU - Sowa, Takumi. AU - Oike, Hideaki. AU - Yamamoto, Saori. AU - Wada, Naoyuki. AU - Sakamoto, Katsuhiko. AU - Oishi, Katsutaka. PY - 2020/3/26. Y1 - 2020/3/26. N2 - Acute or chronic effects of consuming or skipping breakfast on cognitive performance in humans are controversial. To evaluate the effects of chronically skipping breakfast (SB) on hippocampus-dependent long-term memory formation, we examined hippocampal gene expression and applied the novel object recognition test (NORT) after two weeks of repeated fasting for six hours from lights off to mimic SB in mice. We also examined the effects of SB on circadian rhythms of locomotor activity, food intake, core body temperature (CBT) and sleep-wake cycles. Skipping breakfast slightly but significantly decreased ...
Popular models of long-term memory (LTM) organization in the brain suggest that the hippocampus (HPC) has a specific, unique role in LTM. Authors of popular theories highlight specific patterns of amnesia when the HPC is damaged before a learning event. However, these views also suggest that HPC damage should have equivalent amnestic effects if disrupted before or soon after a learning event. By contrast to this prediction, several groups have shown that HPC damage after learning causes more widespread, or "global" amnesia. This general effect remains without explanation in popular models of HPC function in LTM. Here, I suggest a new concept, on long-term memory organization to account for these effects and generate several new predictions. In recent work, we have begun to confirm some of these predictions, supporting a general role of the HPC in LTM organization.. ...
Memory can be divided according to different temporal phases: acquisition, consolidation, and retrieval. The consolidation phase is divided into molecular consolidation (range of hours after acquisition) and system consolidation (range of weeks and months after acquisition) (Dudai, 2004). Molecular consolidation is thought to be a protein synthesis-dependent process (Alberini, 2008; Costa-Mattioli et al., 2009). The clear effect of protein synthesis inhibitors on long-term memory was studied extensively mainly in the context of late-phase long-term potentiation (LTP) (Abraham and Williams, 2008). Similar molecular mechanisms were proposed for maintenance of long-term synaptic modifications and learning processes (Davis and Squire, 1984; Costa-Mattioli et al., 2009). However, long-term memory is not supported only by modulation of synaptic strength; modifications in intrinsic neuronal properties also subserve learning-related behavioral changes (Saar and Barkai, 2003; Zhang and Linden, 2003; ...

We reached out to Debra to make sure the special was officially in the works. "Yes, I can officially confirm we are filming a Being Deb Special," Debra tells us. "It is full of fun new things about my businesses, music launch, and friends," she adds.. Wait…MUSIC LAUNCH?! I guess that explains this comment from Debra on Facebook about the special: "It will be fun! You will see my new rap!" So apparently we can all look forward to the debut of Debreezy yo!. Unfortunately, we still dont have a date for when the Being Deb special will air, although I assume it will be tied in to the end of the current season of Teen Mom OG somehow - perhaps as a bridge episode between the Teen Mom OG finale and the new season of Teen Mom 2? Until then, you can get to know Debras fiance Dr. David by checking out our profile on him, including details from Debra on how they met!. ...
Summary It is shown that long-term potentiation (LTP) is the cellular basis of memory formation. However, since all but small fraction of memories are forgotten, LTP has been further divided into early LTP (e-LTP), the mechanism by which short-term memories are formed, and a more stable late LTP (L-LTP), by which long-term memories are formed. Remarkably, it has been shown that an e-LTP can be stabilized if it is preceded or followed by heterosynaptic L-LTP. According to Synaptic Tagging and Capture (STC) hypothesis, e-LTP is stabilized by capturing proteins that are made by L-LTP induction. The model proposes that this mechanism underlies the formation of late associative memory, where the stability of a memory is not only defined by the stimuli that induce the change but also by events happening before and after these stimuli. As such, the model explicitly predicts that a short-term memory can be stabilized by inducing heterosynaptic L-LTP. In this grant, I will put this hypothesis into test. ...

Those of you new to this website may not know the story of my friend Debra (not her real name). Debra has suffered for the past two years with bowel issues-everything from heartburn to brain fog, low energy, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation. In other words, miserable. At times, she has been afraid to leave the house because she may need to be near a bathroom-quickly. Think about how that may affect your life! Ive been working with her since last April (see blogs from 4/26.15, and 7/11/15), and her symptoms have improved, but not disappeared completely. Gut issues are complex; they could be due to food allergies, immune system issues, intestinal bacterial problems, and food pairing problems, etc. But recently, Debra told me that she thinks she may have finally gotten a handle on her problem, and is currently taking natural supplements to manage her issues.. She has been studying eastern medical remedies (since nothing in the western world has completely worked), and has found a few of ...

The main sensory organ of prosobranch molluscs is a structure with many folds called osphradium, located in the gill cavity. The current or water passes through the osphradium allowing the snail determine some aspects of the chemical composition of the water that surrounds it (the smell). Only the most primitive opisthobranchs still have the osphradium because the immense majority have evolved and have developed new sensory structures such as sensory mounds or oral tentacles, around the mouth.. The most obvious sensory organs in the opisthobranchs are the rinophores, which are horn-shaped structures they have on the head. Little is known about the function of rinophores, although it seems they are very important organs. The tissue that covers them is not much different from other parts of the body but for the absence of secretory glands. Although there is no direct evidence, most authors agree that the role of rinophores is to find food and other individuals of their same species to ...

What is it that draws us to want to know more about other people we may meet along the way? Often there is a common interest or bond of some kind. Within the EB community, many parents have taken an otherwise trying facet of their lives and found a way to not only inspire and educate others, but help build a support network. This has been done by simply sharing their story, whether it is by hosting an event in their community and introducing neighbors to what living with EB is all about or proactively reaching out to local media to share their story with a larger audience.. It can be a tough decision on how much we want to share as a family. In my various roles interacting with the EB community, I always strive to be an advocate for families and a supporter in whatever way I can help best, such as directing someone to a resource that I think might be especially helpful to a family. But my role as a mom and as a parent who has lost a child to the devastating disease only motivates me more to ...

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 ...
Positive effects of caffeine on long-term memory have been shown in a study analyzing habitual caffeine intake of coffee or tea in addition to consuming other substances. Their effect on cognitive processes was observed by performing numerous cognitive tasks. Words were presented and delayed recall was measured. Increased delayed recall was demonstrated by individuals with moderate to high habitual caffeine intake (mean 710 mg/week) as more words were successfully recalled compared to those with low habitual caffeine intake (mean 178 mg/week).[5] Therefore, improved performance in long-term memory was shown with increased habitual caffeine intake due to better storage or retrieval.[5] A similar study assessing effects of caffeine on cognition and mood resulted in improved delayed recall with caffeine intake. A dose-response relationship was seen as individuals were able to recall more words after a period of time with increased caffeine.[6] Improvement of long-term memory with caffeine intake ...
The enzyme protein kinase M-ζ (PKM-ζ) was thought to be a fixture of long-term memory, as its inhibition could erase old memories, whilst adding it could strengthen faded ones. Two independent groups have challenged the role of this memory molecule by developing mice that completely lack it and show no detectable memory problems.. The scientists published their findings in the journal Nature¹ ². Back in 2007, Todd Sacktor was able to wipe out month-old memories of unpleasant smells in rats by injecting their brains with ZIP, a peptide that was meant to block PKM-ζ. Other teams obtained similar results, erasing different kinds of memory by injecting ZIP into the brains of rodents, flies and sea slugs. In 2011, Sacktor was able to strengthen the memory of unpleasant tastes in rats by injecting their brains with viruses carrying extra copies of PKM-ζ.. These studies suggested that long-term memory was fragile and depended on the continuous activity of a single enzyme. Much of this data ...
