Deficits in learning and memory are commonly observed in the majority of aged humans and animals. The hippocampal formation is most frequently implicated in age-related memory decline, as this brain region is known to play a critical role in mediating memory for certain kinds of new information. In fact, it has been well documented that hippocampus-dependent forms of learning and memory are impaired during normal aging [reviewed in 2,8,9,12,26]. It is not surprising, therefore, that attempts to… CONTINUE READING
