New clues as to why some older people may be losing their memory
New research links 'silent strokes,' or small spots of dead brain cells, found in about one out of four older adults to memory loss in the elderly.  View News Article (2012-01-03)

Disruption of sleep in children could hamper memory processes
Sleep disordered breathing can hamper memory processes in children, according to a new study.  View News Article (2015-04-15)

Life can be sweet in old age
Psychologists have discovered that taking glucose in old age can improve memory. Leigh Riby and Cheryl Glover of Glasgow Caledonian University will present the results of their study today, Thursday 15 April 2004, at the British Psychological Society's Annual Conference at Imperial College, London. The study was carried out using 20 people aged between 60 and 80 years. The participants were... View News Article (2004-04-16)

Scan visualises poor memory in the elderly
Dutch psychologists have found that elderly persons with a poor memory demonstrate less activity in the mediotemporal lobe when storing new information than elderly persons with a normally functioning memory. Sander Daselaar from the Free University of Amsterdam made scans of the activity in various brain areas. These showed differences between elderly persons with a good memory and elderly...

'Memory molecule' stores memories in neocortex
The "memory storage molecule" - PKMzeta - maintains long-term memories in the neocortex and its presence is continually required in order for the memory to endure, according to a finding by researchers at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel and SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. View News Article (2007-08-17)

Tracing the formation of long-term memory
The formation of long-term memory in fruit flies can be demonstrated by the influx of calcium into cells called mushroom body neurons that occurs after special training that includes periods of rest, said researchers from Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) in a report that appears in the current issue of the journal Neuron. View News Article (2006-12-07)

Which Structure has optimal resistive switching characteristics?
Resistance switching of random access memory has been widely explored due to its potential for replacement of flash memory in the next-generation nonvolatile memory applications.  View News Article (2014-08-08)

Several forms of vitamin E protect against memory disorders
Elderly people with high serum vitamin E levels are less likely to suffer from memory disorders than their peers with lower levels, according to a study published recently in Experimental Gerontology. View News Article (2014-01-07)

Montreal researchers probe the genetic basis of memory
A group of Montreal researchers has discovered that GCN2, a protein in cells that inhibits the conversion of new information into long-term memory, may be a master regulator of the switch from short-term to long-term memory. View News Article (2005-08-31)

Gene variant leads to better memory via increased brain activation
Carriers of the so-called KIBRA T allele have better memories than those who don't have this gene variant. This means we can reject the theory that the brain of a non-bearer compensates for this. This is shown by researchers from Umeå University in The Journal of Neuroscience. View News Article (2011-10-18)
