Synaptic tagging and long-term potentiation
Repeated stimulation of hippocampal neurons can induce an immediate and prolonged increase in synaptic strength that is called long-term potentiation (LTP)—the primary cellular model of memory in theExpand

Synaptic tagging: implications for late maintenance of hippocampal long-term potentiation
A novel property of hippocampal LTP, 'variable persistence', has recently been described that is, we argue, relevant to the role of LTP in information storage. Specifically, new results indicate thatExpand

Anisomycin, an inhibitor of protein synthesis, blocks late phases of LTP phenomena in the hippocampal CA1 region in vitro
Long-term potentiation (LTP) with its extremely long duration has been frequently regarded as an elementary mechanism of information storage in the nervous system or at least as a suitable model forExpand

Weak before strong: dissociating synaptic tagging and plasticity-factor accounts of late-LTP
Experiments were conducted using hippocampal slices in vitro to compare two accounts of the mechanisms by which input-specific protein synthesis-dependent long-term potentiation (late-LTP) may beExpand

Dopaminergic antagonists prevent long-term maintenance of posttetanic LTP in the CA1 region of rat hippocampal slices
The involvement of dopaminergic mechanisms in the induction and maintenance of posttetanic long-term potentiation (LTP) was investigated on CA1 cells of rat hippocampal slices. The presence of theExpand

The effect of dopaminergic D1 receptor blockade during tetanization on the expression of long-term potentiation in the rat CA1 region in vitro
The effect of dopaminergic D1 receptor blockade on the expression of long-term potentiation (LTP) was investigated in the rat hippocampal CA1 region in vitro by extracellular recordings (by measuringExpand

A different form of long-lasting potentiation revealed in tissue plasminogen activator mutant mice
The establishment of hippocampal long-term (LTP) requires protein and mRNA synthesis, suggesting that neuronal activity resulting in LTP initiates a cascade of gene expression. The expression of theExpand

Allocentric spatial learning can sometimes occur in one trial. The incorporation of information into a spatial representation may, therefore, obey a one-trial correlational learning rule rather thanExpand

Influence of actinomycin D, a RNA synthesis inhibitor, on long‐term potentiation in rat hippocampal neurons in vivo and in vitro.
1. Hippocampal long‐term potentiation (LTP) may serve as an elementary process underlying certain forms of learning and memory in vertebrates. As is the case with behavioural memory, hippocampal LTPExpand

Deficits in memory tasks of mice with CREB mutations depend on gene dosage.
Studies in Aplysia, Drosophila, and mice have shown that the transcription factor CREB is involved in formation and retention of long-term memory. To analyze the impact of differential CREB levels onExpand
