These observations indicate that the long-lasting trace of an experience is not completely fixed, consolidated, or coded at the time of the experience. Consolidation requires time, and under at leastExpand
Many neurons in the mammalian central nervous system communicate through electrical synapses, defined here as gap junction–mediated connections. Electrical synapses are reciprocal pathways for ionicExpand

β-Adrenergic activation and memory for emotional events
SUBSTANTIAL evidence from animal studies suggests that enhanced memory associated with emotional arousal results from an activation of β-adrenergic stress hormone systems during and after anExpand
Memory and Emotion: The Making of Lasting Memories
Most of us remember where we were and what we were doing on September 11, 2001. Why do most experiences leave little trace while some-even terrible ordeals that people wish they could forget-leaveExpand
Basolateral amygdala noradrenergic influences on memory storage are mediated by an interaction between beta- and alpha1-adrenoceptors.
Extensive evidence indicates that norepinephrine modulates memory storage through an activation of beta-adrenoceptors in the basolateral nucleus of the amygdala (BLA). Recent findings suggest thatExpand
Role of the Basolateral Amygdala in Memory Consolidation
Abstract: Memories of emotionally arousing events tend to be more vivid and to persist longer than do memories of neutral or trivial events. Moreover, memories of emotionally influenced informationExpand
