'Consolidation' has been used to describe distinct but related processes. In considering the implications of our recent findings on the lability of reactivated fear memories, we view consolidation and reconsolidation in terms of molecular events taking place within neurons as opposed to interactions between brain regions. Our findings open up a new dimension in the study of memory consolidation. We argue that consolidation is not a one-time event, but instead is reiterated with subsequent… Expand
Reconsolidation and the fate of consolidated memories
TLDR
The consolidation-reconsolidation debate is addressed and some controversial issues about the reconsolidation hypothesis are discussed, in particular the biological role of this process. Expand
Learning and memory: Interpretations of retrograde amnesia: old problems redux
TLDR
An alternative retrieval-based theory is proposed that accommodates the recent data, as well as other puzzling related observations that suggest an old memory reactivated by cueing becomes labile and vulnerable to an amnesic treatment. 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

TLDR
The hypothesis that reactivation of a consolidated memory can return it to a labile, sensitive state - in which it can be modified, strengthened, changed or even erased is revisited. Expand
Memory Reconsolidation Versus Extinction
Memory retrieval is not a passive phenomenon. Recent studies have shown that memory retrieval initiates two opposite and dissociable processes: memory reconsolidation and extinction. ReconsolidationExpand
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
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
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
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
Retrieval failure versus memory loss in experimental amnesia: definitions and processes.
TLDR
How the field might avoid arguments that are definitional in nature and how various hypotheses fare in light of published data are spoken to. 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
Commentary — reconsolidation: Memory traces revisited
TLDR
The implications of these and earlier findings to the understanding of consolidation are commented on, and their possible relationship to the idea that retrieval creates a new memory trace, increasing the resistance of older memories to disruption is explored. Expand
Commentary — reconsolidation: Strengthening the shaky trace through retrieval
  • S. Sara
  • Psychology, Biology
  • Nature Reviews Neuroscience
  • 2000
TLDR
The issue that in addition to aversive, amygdala-dependent memories, other forms of memory are susceptible to the same effect are raised, and evidence indicating that neuromodulation may have a significant influence on the reconsolidation process is reviewed. Expand
Memory--a century of consolidation.
TLDR
This review examines the progress made over the century in understanding the time-dependent processes that create the authors' lasting memories. Expand
Memory consolidation, retrograde amnesia and the hippocampal complex
TLDR
The hippocampal formation and related structures are involved in certain forms of memory (e.g. autobiographical episodic and spatial memory) for as long as they exist and contribute to the transformation and stabilization of other form of memory stored elsewhere in the brain. Expand
Fear memories require protein synthesis in the amygdala for reconsolidation after retrieval
TLDR
It is shown that consolidated fear memories, when reactivated during retrieval, return to a labile state in which infusion of anisomycin shortly after memory reactivation produces amnesia on later tests, regardless of whether reactivation was performed 1 or 14 days after conditioning. Expand
Why We Think Plasticity Underlying Pavlovian Fear Conditioning Occurs in the Basolateral Amygdala
TLDR
It is argued that the ABL is involved in the encoding of fear memory and the modulation of memory functions of other structures, including the hippocampus, as well as in a distributed network that encodes the fear memory. Expand
Retrograde amnesia for old (reactivated) memory: some anomalous characteristics.
Old memory, when reactivated by cue exposure, was disrupted by mild or deep hypothermia treatments. New memory was impaired only by deep cooling. Moreover, old but not new learning showed spontaneousExpand
Consolidation and the hippocampal complex revisited: in defense of the multiple-trace model
TLDR
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as well as provide a pedagogical rationale for the use of EMTs. Expand
The seven sins of memory. Insights from psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
  • D. Schacter

TLDR
How and why memory can get us into trouble is examined and it is argued that the 7 sins may appear to reflect flaws in system design, but are actually by-products of otherwise adaptive features of memory. Expand
