Recent findings have significantly advanced our understanding the mechanisms of memory formation. Most of these advances stemmed from behavioural pharmacology research involving, particularly, the localized infusion of drugs with specific molecular actions into specific brain regions. This approach has revealed brain structures involved in different memory types and the main neurotransmitter systems and sequence of metabolic cascades that participate in memory consolidation.
