This special volume ofProgress in Molecular Biology and Translational Scienceprovides a current overview of how memory is processed in the brain. A broad range of topics are presented by leaders in the field, ranging from brain circuitry to synaptic plasticity to the molecular machinery that contributes to the brain's ability to maintain information across time. Memory systems in the prefrontal cortex, hippocampus and amygdala are considered as well. In addition, the volume covers recent contributions to our understanding of memory from in vivo imaging, optogenetic, electrophysiological, biochemical and molecular biological studies.

  • Articles from world renowned experts in memory
  • Covering topics from signaling, epigenetic, RNA translation to plasticity
  • Methodological approaches include molecular and cellular, behavioral, electrophysiological, optogenetic and functional imaging

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE SERIES "Full of interest not only for the molecular biologist-for whom the numerous references will be invaluable-but will also appeal to a much wider circle of biologists, and in fact to all those who are concerned with the living cell."--BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL
