Anterior thalamic lesions are thought to produce 'covert pathology' in retrosplenial cortex, but the causes are unknown. Microarray analyses tested the hypothesis that thalamic damage causes a chronic, hypo-function of metabolic and plasticity-related pathways (Experiment 1). Rats with unilateral, anterior thalamic lesions were exposed to a novel(More)
The expression of two immediate-early genes (IEGs), Zif268 and c-Fos, was quantified in hippocampal subregions and related structures following spatial learning in the Morris water-maze. A critical feature was the novel control protocol alongside more standard controls, the purpose of which was to test whether hippocampal activity is set automatically when(More)
In isolated hippocampal slices, decaying long-term potentiation can be stabilized and converted to late long-term potentiation lasting many hours, by prior or subsequent strong high-frequency tetanization of an independent input to a common population of neurons-a phenomenon known as 'synaptic tagging and capture'. Here we show that the same phenomenon(More)
