About this Research Topic

Memory is a basic function of the brain, and fundamental in our life. It is defined according to its content, time and neurobiological basis: in the former case, as declarative/explicit or non-declarative/implicit memory; regarding time, as short-term (STM) or working, and long-term memory (LTM); and the ...

Memory is a basic function of the brain, and fundamental in our life. It is defined according to its content, time and neurobiological basis: in the former case, as declarative/explicit or non-declarative/implicit memory; regarding time, as short-term (STM) or working, and long-term memory (LTM); and the latter depends on protein and mRNA synthesis.

The investigation of learning and memory mechanisms and related brain areas represent one of the most important topics in neuroscience. Memory is a field of scientific investigation in constant expansion. It is unsurprising that thousands of papers already have been published dealing with this subject and we frequently find them in diverse journals, making difficult clear insights. An effective way to provide appropriate empiric and conceptual frames might be to make available compilations. With this aim, we are organizing the present Research Topic. Certainly, the exact mechanisms of learning and memory are promising subjects and include neuropharmacology, and neurobiological and behavioral approaches. We are targeting audiences and authors from preclinical to clinical settings, and including papers with experimental findings, as well as theoretical and historical analyses. Possible approaches include neuropharmacological, neurobiological and/or behavioral mechanisms of learning and memory, and particularly welcome are contributions that combine approaches. To our knowledge no previous work exists with these keywords. These might reveal key insights and together will be a decisive step forward in this topic.


Keywords: drugs, behavior, memory tasks, preclinical, clinical, humans, animals
