Consolidation of new memories depends on a crucial phase of protein synthesis. It is widely held that, once consolidated, memories are stable and resilient to disruption. However, established memories become labile when recalled and require another phase of protein synthesis to be maintained. Therefore, it has been proposed that when a memory is reactivated it must undergo additional consolidation (reconsolidation) to persist. To determine whether reconsolidation recapitulates consolidation, in… Expand

Linking New Information to a Reactivated Memory Requires Consolidation and Not Reconsolidation Mechanisms
TLDR
It is found that reconsolidation does not contribute to the formation of an association between new and reactivated information, and instead, it recruits mechanisms similar to those underlying consolidation of a new memory. Expand
Reconsolidation: maintaining memory relevance
TLDR
The adaptive function of memory reconsolidation is explored in more detail, with a strong emphasis on its role in updating memories to maintain their relevance. Expand
Reconsolidation: the samsara of memory consolidation
Memory formation is a complex and very dynamic process. After a learning event, the acquired information undergoes a number of changes that eventually result in memory storage. Stored memories areExpand
Memory consolidation and reconsolidation in an invertebrate model: The role of the GABAergic system
TLDR
The results obtained in this report with an invertebrate model represent additional evidences supporting the view that some molecular mechanisms subserving different memory phases could be the basic tools employed by phylogenetically disparate animals. Expand
Reconsolidation of memory: A decade of debate
TLDR
This review collects this plentiful literature with a particular emphasis on some of the key questions that have emerged from the reconsolidation theory, and focuses on tracing the characterisation of the boundary conditions that constrain the occurrence of memory reconsideration. Expand
4.14 – Memory Reconsolidation
Memory is formed, reshaped, maintained, and expressed through several dynamic processes. A new memory exists in a labile state for some time after learning and eventually becomes stable through aExpand
The Formation and Stability of Recognition Memory: What Happens Upon Recall?
TLDR
This review focuses on recognition memory, a paradigm widely used in humans to probe declarative memory, and briefly outlines recent advances in the understanding of the processes and brain circuits involved in recognition memory and reviews the evidence that recognition memory can undergo reconsolidation upon reactivation. Expand
Phase-Dependent Molecular Requirements for Memory Reconsolidation: Differential Roles for Protein Synthesis and Protein Kinase A Activity
TLDR
It is shown that reconsolidation after the retrieval of consolidated memory at both 6 and 24 h requires protein synthesis, which supports the notion that even seemingly consolidated memories undergo further selective molecular maturation processes, which may only be detected by analyzing the role of specific pathways in memory reconsideration after retrieval. Expand
Modulation of the consolidation and reconsolidation of fear memory by three different serotonin receptors in hippocampus
TLDR
Results indicated that in the CA1 region of the hippocampus the 5‐HT5A, 5‐ HT6 and5‐HT7 serotonin receptors participate in the reconsolidation of the CFC memory 3 h post‐reactivation. Expand
On the role of hippocampal protein synthesis in the consolidation and reconsolidation of object recognition memory.
TLDR
The results indicate that hippocampal protein synthesis is required during a limited post-training time window for consolidation of object recognition memory and show that the hippocampus is engaged during reconsolidation of this type of memory, maybe accruing new information into the original trace.

The consolidation of new but not reactivated memory requires hippocampal C/EBPβ
TLDR
It is shown that consolidation but not reconsolidation of inhibitory avoidance memory requires the expression of the transcription factor CCAAT enhancer binding protein β (C/EBPβ) in the hippocampus, an evolutionarily conserved genetic marker that has a selective role in the consolidation of new but not reactivated memories inThe hippocampus.

The neurobiology of consolidations, or, how stable is the engram?

TLDR
A heated debate has been revitalized on whether memories become labile and must undergo some form of renewed consolidation every time they are activated, and on fundamental issues concerning the nature of the memory trace, its maturation, persistence, retrievability, and modifiability. Expand
A Requirement for the Immediate Early Gene zif268 in Reconsolidation of Recognition Memory after Retrieval
TLDR
It is shown that when a consolidated memory for objects is recalled, zif268 mutant mice are impaired in further long-term but not short-term recognition memory, indicating that IEG-mediated transcriptional regulation in neurons is one common molecular mechanism for the storage of newly formed and reactivated recognition memories. Expand
Independent Cellular Processes for Hippocampal Memory Consolidation and Reconsolidation
TLDR
By infusing antisense oligodeoxynucleotides into the hippocampus of rats, this work shows that consolidation and reconsolidation are doubly dissociable component processes of memory. Expand
Memory Reconsolidation and Extinction Have Distinct Temporal and Biochemical Signatures
TLDR
The temporal dynamics of memory reconsolidation are dependent on the strength and age of the memory, such that younger and weaker memories are more easily reconsolidated than older and stronger memories. Expand
Temporally Graded Requirement for Protein Synthesis following Memory Reactivation
TLDR
It is shown that the requirement for protein synthesis of a reactivated memory is evident only when the memory is recent, and that memory vulnerability decreases as the time between the original training and the recall increases. Expand
Dissociable stages of human memory consolidation and reconsolidation
TLDR
The unique contributions of wake and sleep in the development of different forms of consolidation are described, and it is shown that waking reactivation can turn a previously consolidated memory back into a labile state requiring subsequent reconsolidation. Expand
Reactivation and Reconsolidation of Long-Term Memory in the CrabChasmagnathus: Protein Synthesis Requirement and Mediation by NMDA-Type Glutamatergic Receptors
TLDR
Findings are consistent with those reported for vertebrates, with both showing that reactivation induces a recapitulation of the postacquisition cascade of intracellular events. Expand
Cellular and Systems Reconsolidation in the Hippocampus
TLDR
It is shown that intra-hippocampal infusions of the protein synthesis inhibitor anisomycin caused amnesia for a consolidated hippocampal-dependent contextual fear memory, but only if the memory was reactivated prior to infusion. Expand
Amygdalar circuits required for either consolidation or extinction of taste aversion memory are not required for reconsolidation
TLDR
It is shown that inhibition of protein synthesis in either of these nuclei has no effect on CTA memory under conditions that initiate reconsolidation, which implies that reconsolidations does not recapitulate consolidation, and that consolidation, reconsolidisation and extinction are different processes.
