Environmentally relevant stressors alter memory formation in the pond snail Lymnaea.

Stress alters adaptive behaviours such as learning and memory. Stressors can either enhance or diminish learning, memory formation and/or memory recall. We focus attention here on how environmentally...

Road Work on Memory Lane - Functional and Structural alterations to the learning and memory circuit in adults born very preterm.

Very preterm (VPT) birth is considered a risk factor not only for neurological impairment, but also for reduced function in several cognitive domains in childhood and later in life. Individuals who we...

Does excitatory fronto-extracephalic tDCS lead to improved working memory performance?

Evidence suggests that excitatory transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) may improve performance on a wide variety of cognitive tasks. Due to the non-invasive and inexpensive nature of the met...

Long term delivery of pulsed magnetic fields does not improve learning or alter dendritic spine density in the mouse hippocampus.

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is thought to facilitate brain plasticity. However, few studies address anatomical changes following rTMS in relation to behaviour. We delivered 5 w...

Non-invasive brain stimulation techniques for chronic pain.

This is an updated version of the original Cochrane review published in 2010, Issue 9. Non-invasive brain stimulation techniques aim to induce an electrical stimulation of the brain in an attempt to r...

Clinical Trials [2787 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).
