Study finds certain drug targets for memory enhancement

The findings identify specific receptors for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine that re-route information flowing through memory circuits in the hippocampus. Acetylcholine is released in the brain during learning and is critical for the acquisition of new memories.

Specific drug targets within the neural circuits that encode memories and pave the way for significant advances in the treatment of a broad spectrum of brain disorders have been identified by a new University of Bristol-led research.(Unsplash)

Study finds new class of memory cells for remembering faces

Researchers discovered that a small area in the brain's temporal pole region may be involved in facial recognition. The team found that neurons in the TP region were highly selective, responding to faces that the subjects had seen before more strongly than unfamiliar ones.

A new study led by researchers at The Rockefeller University revealed a class of neurons in the brain's temporal pole region that links face perception to long-term memory.(Unsplash)
