187 Memory Loss After Brain Injury Is Improved by Theta Burst Stimulation of the Fornix.

Memory loss after brain injury can be a source of considerable morbidity, but there are presently no therapeutic options available for this condition. We have previously demonstrated that burst stimul...

Dynamic functional brain networks involved in simple visual discrimination learning.

Visual discrimination tasks have been widely used to evaluate many types of learning and memory processes. However, little is known about the brain regions involved at different stages of visual discr...

Brain Proteome Changes Induced by Olfactory Learning in Drosophila.

For more than 30 years the study of learning and memory in Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) has used an olfactory learning paradigm and has resulted in the discovery of many genes involved in memor...

Effect of High-Frequency Stimulation of the Perforant Path on Previously Acquired Spatial Memory in Rats: Influence of Memory Strength and Reactivation.

If memory depends on changes in synaptic strength, then manipulation of synaptic strength after learning should alter memory for what was learned. Here, we examined whether high frequency stimulation ...

A pilot study examining functional brain activity 6 months after memory retraining in MS: the MEMREHAB trial.

Cognitive impairment in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) is now well recognized. One of the most common cognitive deficits is found in memory functioning, largely due to impaired acquisition. ...

Clinical Trials [2806 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Effect of Electrical Stimulation (DC Polarization) to the Brain on Memory

This study will test the effect of direct current (DC) brain polarization (the application of a very weak electrical current to the brain) on learning and memory. Earlier studies have show...

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for Alzheimer's Disease

Background: Alzheimer disease (AD) is a debilitating brain disorder that affects over 4.75 million people in the US and Canada. People with AD have difficulty remembering general facts and...

Ventrointermediate Nucleus (VIM DBS) and Working Memory

This is part of a larger study for which participants have already completed memory and thinking tests. In this study, investigators are trying to learn how deep-brain stimulation affects ...

Dopaminergic Enhancement of Learning and Memory in Healthy Adults and Patients With Dementia/Mild Cognitive Impairment

This study aims to determine whether levodopa is effective in boosting learning and memory in healthy subjects and patients with dementia or Mild Cognitive Impairment. We also examine in ...

Non-Invasive Brain Signal Training to Induce Motor Control Recovery After Stroke

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the benefits of motor learning, functional electrical stimulation, and brain computer interface training for restoring arm function in people with ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Adjustment of BRAIN WAVES from two or more neuronal groups within or across a brain structure (e.g., cortical and limbic brain structures) to become uniform in EEG oscillation patterns in response to a stimulus. It is interpreted as a brain integration sign during many processes such as learning, memory, and perception and involves reciprocal neural connections.

Complex mental function having four distinct phases: (1) memorizing or learning, (2) retention, (3) recall, and (4) recognition. Clinically, it is usually subdivided into immediate, recent, and remote memory.

Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.

Prominent lobed neuropils found in ANNELIDA and all ARTHROPODS except crustaceans. They are thought to be involved in olfactory learning and memory.

Loss of the ability to form new memories beyond a certain point in time. This condition may be organic or psychogenic in origin. Organically induced anterograde amnesia may follow CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; SEIZURES; ANOXIA; and other conditions which adversely affect neural structures associated with memory formation (e.g., the HIPPOCAMPUS; FORNIX (BRAIN); MAMMILLARY BODIES; and ANTERIOR THALAMIC NUCLEI).
