Adult hippocampal neurogenesis has been linked to learning but details of the relationship between neuronal production and memory formation remain unknown. [...] Key Result This effect of irradiation was specific since long-term memory for a visibly cued platform remained intact. Furthermore, irradiation just before or after water maze training had no effect on learning or long-term memory.Expand

The Role of Adult Neurogenesis in Contextual Learning and Memory Interference
New neurons are continually produced throughout adult life in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus, in a process termed adult neurogenesis. Although there is a significant effort in the literature toExpand
Adult Neurogenesis in the Hippocampus: A Role in Learning and Memory
While we have known for some time that new neurons are produced in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus throughout adulthood, the role of adult neurogenesis in relation to known hippocampalExpand
Working memory training decreases hippocampal neurogenesis
TLDR
It is found that working memory training over a prolonged period of time reduces neurogenesis, and this reduction may partially be mediated by increased stress. Expand
Paradoxical influence of hippocampal neurogenesis on working memory
To explore the function of adult hippocampal neurogenesis, we ablated cell proliferation by using two independent and complementary methods: (i) a focal hippocampal irradiation and (ii) an inducibleExpand
Adult Neurogenesis Modulates the Hippocampus-Dependent Period of Associative Fear Memory
TLDR
Three independent lines of evidence strongly suggest that the level of hippocampal neurogenesis play a role in determination of the HPC-dependent period of memory in adult rodents, and provide a framework for understanding the mechanisms of the hippocampal-cortical complementary learning systems. Expand
Adult neurogenesis and hippocampal memory function: new cells, more plasticity, new memories?
TLDR
Evidence is reviewed showing a strong correlation between certain types of memory functions and adult neurogenesis in the hippocampus, essential to understand the function of neural networks and to develop effective therapies for various cognitive dysfunctions. Expand
Sex differences in neurogenesis and activation of new neurons in response to spatial learning and memory
TLDR
While spatial training differentially regulates hippocampal neurogenesis in males and females, the activity of new neurons in response to spatial memory retrieval is similar, highlighting the importance of sex on neural plasticity and cognition. Expand
New neurons and new memories: how does adult hippocampal neurogenesis affect learning and memory?
The integration of adult-born neurons into the circuitry of the adult hippocampus suggests an important role for adult hippocampal neurogenesis in learning and memory, but its specific function inExpand
Inhibition of adult hippocampal neurogenesis disrupts contextual learning but spares spatial working memory, long-term conditional rule retention and spatial reversal
TLDR
Data demonstrate that reduced adult hippocampal neurogenesis produces marked deficits in the rapid acquisition of emotionally relevant contextual information but spares spatial working memory function, the long-term retention of acquired spatial rules and the ability to flexibly modify learned spatial strategies. Expand
Computational Influence of Adult Neurogenesis on Memory Encoding
TLDR
Computational evidence is presented that indicates that adult neurogenesis may make three separate but related contributions to memory formation, and that new granule cells may affect hippocampal function in several unique and previously unpredicted ways. Expand

Learning enhances adult neurogenesis in the hippocampal formation
TLDR
It is reported that the number of adult-generated neurons doubles in the rat dentate gyrus in response to training on associative learning tasks that require the hippocampus, which indicates that adult- generated hippocampal neurons are specifically affected by, and potentially involved in, associative memory formation. Expand
Neurogenesis in the adult is involved in the formation of trace memories
TLDR
It is shown that a substantial reduction in the number of newly generated neurons in the adult rat impairs hippocampal-dependent trace conditioning, a task in which an animal must associate stimuli that are separated in time. Expand
Neurogenesis may relate to some but not all types of hippocampal‐dependent learning
TLDR
The results combined with previous ones suggest that neurogenesis may be associated with the formation of some but not all types of hippocampal‐dependent memories. Expand
Differential effects of learning on neurogenesis: learning increases or decreases the number of newly born cells depending on their birth date
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the late phase of learning has a multifaceted effect on neurogenesis depending on the birth date of new neurons, and a novel mechanism through which neuroGenesis may influence normal and pathological behaviors is revealed. Expand
Effects of adult neurogenesis on synaptic plasticity in the rat dentate gyrus.
TLDR
It is concluded that the young, adult-generated granule neurons play a significant role in synaptic plasticity in the DG, the major source of the afferent inputs into the hippocampus. Expand
Arrested neuronal proliferation and impaired hippocampal function following fractionated brain irradiation in the adult rat
The generation of new neurons in the adult mammalian brain has been documented in numerous recent reports. Studies undertaken so far indicate that adult hippocampal neurogenesis is related in aExpand
Learning may reduce neurogenesis in adult rat dentate gyrus
TLDR
A different effect of learning on immature neuron survival, depending on the time elapsing from mitosis to learning, is suggested. Expand
Spatial learning affects immature granule cell survival in adult rat dentate gyrus
TLDR
The survival of newborn cells was enhanced by learning at early stage of differentiation; the newborn cells saved by learning were mainly located in the rostral part of external blade of granule cell layer and there was a correlation between the actual individual learning and newborn cell survival.

Sites of Neocortical Reorganization Critical for Remote Spatial Memory
TLDR
Consolidation of spatial memory requires a time-dependent hippocampal-cortical dialogue, ultimately enabling widespread cortical networks to mediate effortful recall and use of cortically stored remote memories independently. Expand
Functional neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus
TLDR
It is reported that newly generated cells in the adult mouse hippocampus have neuronal morphology and can display passive membrane properties, action potentials and functional synaptic inputs similar to those found in mature dentate granule cells. Expand
