The most distinctive attribute of long-term memory is persistence over time. New studies have uncovered many aspects of the molecular and cellular biology of synaptic plasticity, and the acquisition and consolidation of memory, which are thought to depend on synaptic plasticity. Much less, however, is known about the molecular and cellular biology of long-term memory persistence. Recent findings in the field are construed within the conceptual framework that proposes that consolidation and… CONTINUE READING
