A team of scientists reports finding the first evidence that the human hippocampus is necessary for future planning. Its findings, published in the journal Neuron, link its long-established role in memory with our ability to use our knowledge to map out the future effects of our actions. The results have implications for the way we […]Continue Reading ...
Feb 19 2019 A subset of neurons in the hippocampus respond to both place and taste, according to research in male rats published in JNeurosci. The study shows how animals may remember and find their way back to locations where they previously found nourishment. Although the hippocampus is connected to parts of the brain’s taste […]Continue Reading ...
Two Veterans Affairs researchers have explored how memory is tied to the hippocampus, with findings that will expand scientists’ understanding of how memory works. Drs. Christine N. Smith and Larry R. Squire, both with the VA San Diego Healthcare System and the University of California, San Diego, found that declarative memory–recalling facts and events–depends on […]Continue Reading ...
A recent article by a team of international experts on multiple sclerosis (MS) underscores the importance of expanding the knowledge base about the hippocampus in order to better understand the genesis of cognitive deficits and develop new treatment strategies. The article, “The hippocampus in multiple sclerosis”, was published in The Lancet Neurology 2018;17:918-926. (doi: 10.1016/S1474-4422(18)30309-0) […]Continue Reading ...
May 11, 2018 In a breakthrough that could one day help individuals with cognitive impairment, researchers at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) identified a specific receptor related to the neurotransmitter serotonin that could be targeted with drugs to boost memory. The researchers, who examined the role of serotonin in the hippocampus of mice, published […]Continue Reading ...

Feb 5 2019 Researchers studying male and female marmosets have homed in on the primate brain circuitry responsible for individual differences in overall anxiety. Their findings, published in JNeurosci, show that increasing levels of the neurotransmitter glutamate in the hippocampus normalizes anxious monkeys’ “fight or flight” response. Previous human and animal studies suggest roles for […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Oct. 17, 2018 — A precision map of a part of the brain of the lowly mouse could be a potent new research tool against Alzheimer’s, researchers say. The highly detailed look at the mouse hippocampus should provide new insight into a range of brain diseases in humans, according to the research team from […]Continue Reading ...

April 7, 2017 Neurons within the prefrontal cortex “train” neurons within the hippocampus to “be told” regulations that distinguish memory-based predictions in in a different way equivalent eventualities, suggesting that studying within the reward is helping information studying one day, consistent with analysis performed on the Icahn College of Medication at Mount Sinai and printed […]Continue Reading ...
Professor Aron Barbey led a group that discovered that the structural integrity of the hippocampus, a area within the mind, may just mediate the connection between health and reminiscence. Credit score: L. Brian Stauffer Research have prompt a hyperlink between health and reminiscence, however researchers have struggled to seek out the mechanism that hyperlinks them.
