Role of adrenoceptor subtypes in memory consolidation.

Abstract

Noradrenaline release in areas within the forebrain occurs following activation of noradrenergic cells in the locus coeruleus (LoC). Release of noradrenaline by attentional/arousal/vigilance factors appears to be essential for learning and is responsible for the consolidation of memory. Noradrenaline can activate any of nine different adrenoceptor (AR… (More)
