Differential role of the hippocampal endocannabinoid system in the memory consolidation and retrieval mechanisms.

Abstract

CB1 cannabinoid receptors are abundantly expressed in the brain, with large concentrations present in the hippocampus, a brain structure essential for memory processing. In the present study, we have investigated the possible modulatory role of the endocannabinoid system in the dorsal hippocampus upon the different phases of memory processing of an aversive… (More)
