Over the past decades studies of the neurobiology of memory were largely restricted to consideration of cellular and molecular events taking place immediately or shortly after training, the so-called consolidation period. More recent views have recognized that the memory process includes sensory processing, orienting of attention, retrieval, encoding, and subsequent consolidation. Advances in biotechnology are providing new tools to gain insights at every level of the memory process. New data… Expand
Novelty and Dopaminergic Modulation of Memory Persistence: A Tale of Two Systems
TLDR
It is proposed that the projections originating from the VTA and the LC belong to two distinct systems that enhance memory of novel events, which include experiences that share some commonality with past experiences and experiences that bear only a minimal relationship to past experiences. Expand
Locus coeruleus in memory formation and Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
The multifaceted role of the LC in memory and general task performance and the close correlation of LC degeneration with neurodegenerative disease progression together implicate it as a target for new clinical assessment tools. Expand
Hippocampal noradrenaline regulates spatial working memory in the rat
Abstract Degeneration of noradrenergic neurons in the locus coeruleus and loss of fiber terminals in the neocortical and hippocampal target regions represent prominent and early features ofExpand
Locus coeruleus integrity preserves memory performance across the adult life span
TLDR
Findings link non-invasive, in vivo indices of LC integrity to memory in human aging and extend the knowledge about the role of the LC norepinephrine system in senescent decline in human cognition. Expand
Higher rostral locus coeruleus integrity is associated with better memory performance in older adults
TLDR
Using high-resolution neuromelanin-sensitive magnetic resonance imaging, it is found that individual differences in learning and memory were positively associated with LC integrity across a variety of memory tasks in younger, and older adults. Expand
Rostral locus coeruleus integrity is associated with better memory performance in older adults
TLDR
It is reported that ‘youth-like’ rostral locus coeruleus integrity is associated with better memory performance in the elderly and link non-invasive, in vivo indices of LC integrity to memory in ageing. Expand
Ripple-triggered stimulation of the locus coeruleus during post-learning sleep disrupts ripple/spindle coupling and impairs memory consolidation.
TLDR
Examination of the effects of ripple-associated LC activation on hippocampal and cortical activity and on spatial memory found suppression of synchronous ripple/spindle events appears to interfere with hippocampal-cortical communication, thereby reducing the efficiency of "off-line" memory consolidation.

TLDR
The GANE (glutamate amplifies noradrenergic effects) model proposed by Mather et al. attempts to explain how norepinephrine enhances processing in highly activated brain regions, and begets the “network reset hypothesis” supporting the notion that norespinephrine promotes rapid cognitive and behavioral adaption. Expand
Locus coeruleus: a new look at the blue spot
TLDR
Major compelling questions about the functional role of the locus coeruleus nucleus that had been difficult to answer, given its remote location and diminutive size have now become accessible via new neuroscience tools. Expand
Loss of Catecholaminergic Neuromodulation of Persistent Forms of Hippocampal Synaptic Plasticity with Increasing Age
TLDR
It is postulate that this change in catecholaminergic control of synaptic plasticity that emerges with aging, does not relate to a learning deficit per se, rather it derives from an increase in behavioral thresholds for novelty and motivation that emerge with increasing age that impact, in turn, on learning efficacy.

TLDR
It is suggested that the noradrenergic system and perhaps other neuromodulatory systems, may be a key to linking off-line memory reactivation, retrieval, and memory reconsolidation processes at both synaptic and systems levels, in and out of sleep. Expand

TLDR
Elucidating the factors that control the activity of these neurons and the effect of noradrenaline in target regions is key to understanding how the brain allocates attention and apprehends the environment to select, store and retrieve information for generating adaptive behaviour. Expand
Selective tuning of hippocampal oscillations by phasic locus coeruleus activation in awake male rats
TLDR
Dentate gyrus EEG was examined during glutamatergic activation of the LC in awake male rats in relation to plasticity effects on simultaneously recorded perforant path‐evoked field potentials to suggest oscillatory tuning within the theta and gamma range may facilitate shifts in cognitive set. Expand
Noradrenergic action in prefrontal cortex in the late stage of memory consolidation.
TLDR
The results of these experiments confirm earlier pharmacological and immunohistochemical studies suggesting a delayed role of noradrenaline in a late phase of long-term memory consolidation and the engagement of the PL during these consolidation processes. Expand
Locus coeruleus neuromodulation of memories encoded during negative or unexpected action outcomes
TLDR
Findings suggest that noradrenergic influences help facilitate memory encoding during outcome processing via dynamic interactions with regions that process negative or unexpected feedback. Expand
Plasticity of sensory responses of locus coeruleus neurons in the behaving rat: implications for cognition.
TLDR
The results suggest that the LC does not mediate specific sensory or associative information necessary for ongoing performance but shows remarkable plasticity of sensory responding as a function of changing cognitive significance of the stimulus. Expand
The locus coeruleus–noradrenergic system: modulation of behavioral state and state-dependent cognitive processes
TLDR
It is suggested that dysregulation of locus coeruleus-noradrenergic neurotransmission may contribute to cognitive and/or arousal dysfunction associated with a variety of psychiatric disorders, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, sleep and arousal disorders, as well as certain affective Disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder.

TLDR
The temporally integrative function of the prefrontal cortex is probably based on local interactions between "memory" and "motor-set" cells, as well as on neural associations between prefrontal cortex and posterior cortical areas. Expand

Heterogeneous organization of the locus coeruleus projections to prefrontal and motor cortices
TLDR
The consensus view of LC as a relatively homogeneous modulator of forebrain activity is challenged by demonstrating that neurons in the locus coeruleus maintain segregated connections to brain regions with distinctly different functions, and the impact of the system on the generation and maintenance of adaptive and maladaptive behaviors.
