Studies using protein synthesis inhibitors have provided key support for the prevalent view that memory formation requires the initiation of protein synthesis as a primary element of the molecular biology of memory. However, many other interpretations of the amnesia data have received far less attention. These include: (a) protein synthesis may play a constitutive role in memory formation, providing proteins prior to an experience that can be activated by training; (b) protein synthesis may be… CONTINUE READING
