Memory consolidation refers to the stabilization that a new memory has to undergo in order to persist. Recently, this dominant view of memory has been challenged by renewed interest in reconsolidation, where consolidated memories return to a transient unstable state following their retrieval, from which they must again stabilize in order to persist. In this review, we discuss how reconsolidation is supported by the same line of evidence as consolidation and recent findings of boundary… Expand
Reconsolidation of Declarative Memory
The idea that memories are immutable after consolidation has been challenged. The reconsolidation process offers the possibility of modifying previously stored information. This process has beenExpand
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
Repeated Labilization-Reconsolidation Processes Strengthen Declarative Memory in Humans
TLDR
This work proposes central concepts for the reconsolidation process, emphasizing its biological role and the parametrical constrains for this function to be operative. Expand
Retrieval and reconsolidation of object recognition memory are independent processes in the perirhinal cortex
Reconsolidation refers to the destabilization/re-stabilization process upon memory reactivation. However, the parameters needed to induce reconsolidation remain unclear. Here we evaluated theExpand
Characterization of spatial memory reconsolidation.
TLDR
This study finds that protein synthesis is necessary for reconsolidation to occur in the hippocampal CA3 region after reactivation of partially acquired and old memories but not for strongly acquired and recent memories, and demonstrates the importance of the knowledge of the task on the dynamic nature of memory reconsolidations processing.

Towards a unified model of Pavlovian conditioning: a solution to the reconsolidation problem
Memory formation is a complex dynamic process. When memories are formed they are labile at first but gradually become progressively consolidated into stable traces via synthesis of new proteins.Expand
Is Reconsolidation a General Property of Memory?
TLDR
It is discussed how inconsistent results can be reconciled and what information is needed to uncover for the general use of reconsolidation. Expand
Memory Reconsolidation: Lingering Consolidation and the Dynamic Memory Trace
Abstract The rediscovery of memory reconsolidation has brought the attention of many investigators to this field because the findings that a stabilized memory can return to a labile state haveExpand
A computational model of systems memory consolidation and reconsolidation
TLDR
A neural model based on well‐documented mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and stability is proposed and a computational implementation is described that demonstrates the model's ability to account for a range of findings from the systems consolidation and reconsolidation literature. Expand
The temporal dynamics of enhancing a human declarative memory during reconsolidation
TLDR
The period in which this memory can be reactivated and become labile largely exceeds the time in which that memory is recalled, proving evidence that conscious access is not needed for reconsolidation. Expand

A single standard for memory: the case for reconsolidation
TLDR
It is established that the same operational definitions and types of evidence underpin the deduction of both reconsolidation and consolidation, thus validating the extrapolation that post-retrieval memory plasticity reflects processes akin to those that stabilized the memory following acquisition. 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 reconsidered
TLDR
A retrieval-oriented conceptualization is offered to account for the temporal gradient and the “reconsolidation” phenomena and shows that inhibition of protein synthesis in the lateral and basal nuclei of the amygdala immediately following the reactivation of old memory will induce retrograde amnesia. Expand
Rites of Passage of the Engram Reconsolidation and the Lingering Consolidation Hypothesis
TLDR
A framework model is proposed, which interprets reconsolidation as a manifestation of lingering consolidation, rather than recapitulation of a process that had already come to a closure, which reflects on the nature of consolidation in general and makes predictions that could guide further research.

TLDR
A working model is concluded that could explain the apparent controversy of memory vulnerability after reactivation and indicates brain areas involved in consolidation after initial training are not required for reconsolidation. Expand
Commentary — reconsolidation: Memory involves far more than 'consolidation'
TLDR
Other behavioural observations indicate that even this modification to consolidation theory may be insufficient to describe the dynamic properties of memory. Expand

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
Stability of Retrieved Memory: Inverse Correlation with Trace Dominance
TLDR
It is reported that in both conditioned taste aversion in the rat and fear conditioning in the medaka fish, the stability of retrieved memory is inversely correlated with the control of behavior by that memory. Expand
Fading in.
TLDR
Some recent work will be discussed that has gone beyond the shortcomings of previous experimental approaches to strongly suggest that amnesia can be due to a retrieval impairment that can be overcome with a reminder--an example of memories fading in. 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
