About this Research Topic
The formation of human memories involves a series of complicated biochemical processes many of which are not fully understood. However, recent data implicate several families of transcription factors that appear critically important in the regulation of memory. For example, CREB, NF-kB, AP-1, Egr, and C/EBP families are emerging as key transcriptional regulators of synaptic plasticity and long term memory. This Research Topic attempts to characterize how each family may contribute to human memory in unique ways.
