Isolating a sexually mature Aplysia fasciata for either 1 or 24 hr immediately after training that a food is inedible blocks the subsequent expression of memory measured 24 hr later. Isolation that is delayed for 1 hr after training, but not for 12 hr after training, is also effective in blocking memory. Isolation affects memory because of a specific effect caused by the absence of pheromones secreted by conspecifics rather than by a nonspecific change in the chemical environment, because… Expand
Multiple memory processes following training that a food is inedible in Aplysia.
TLDR
It is reported that separable memory processes are also initiated by a training procedure affecting Aplysia feeding behavior, a model system for examining the neural mechanisms underlying the regulation of a complex behavior. Expand
Social snails: the effect of social isolation on cognition is dependent on environmental context
TLDR
The effect of social isolation on cognitive function is highly dependent on the environmental context in which it is experienced, and when exposed to low calcium and predator kairomones combined, grouped snails normally demonstrate long-term memory, but following maintenance in isolation long- term memory was blocked.

Nitric Oxide Is Necessary for Multiple Memory Processes after Learning That a Food Is Inedible in Aplysia
TLDR
The data indicate that NO signaling during training plays a critical role in the formation of multiple memory processes, and that the substance did not cause a pervasive modulation or poisoning of many aspects of feeding and other behaviors. Expand
Operant Conditioning of Respiration in Lymnaea: The Environmental Context
TLDR
The conclusion so far is that the effects of different combinations of stressors on LTM formation are an emergent property and thus can only be ascertained following direct experimentation. Expand
New learning while consolidating memory during sleep is actively blocked by a protein synthesis dependent process
TLDR
In a learning paradigm affecting Aplysia feeding, when animals were trained after being awakened from sleep, interactions between new experiences and consolidation were prevented by blocking long-term memory arising from the new experiences, andhibiting protein synthesis eliminated the block and allowed even a brief, generally ineffective training to produce long- term memory.

Effects of prenatal exposure to a 50-Hz magnetic field on one-trial passive avoidance learning in 1-day-old chicks.
TLDR
The results suggest a potential disruption of memory formation following in ovo exposure to MF, with this effect only evident in the more stressed, isolated chicks. Expand
Circadian modulation of complex learning in diurnal and nocturnal Aplysia.
TLDR
The results from the studies of circadian modulation of long-term sensitization and LFI suggest thatcircadian modulation of memory formation may be a general phenomenon with potentially widespread implications for many types oflong-term learning. Expand
PKG-mediated MAPK signaling is necessary for long-term operant memory in Aplysia.
TLDR
The role of MAPK and PKG in negatively reinforced operant memory is emphasized and a role for PKG-dependent MAPK signaling in invertebrate associative memory is demonstrated. Expand
Control of feeding in aplysia with ad libitum access to food: presence of food increases the intervals between feeding bouts.
TLDR
After food deprivation that is sufficiently long so that the steady-state decays, animals eat a large meal the size and dynamics of which are consistent with regulation via the three variables previously identified, and this large meal is modulated by pheromones secreted by conspecifics even in sexually immature Aplysia. Expand
Title: Control of feeding in Aplysia with ad libitum access to food: Presence of food increases the intervals between feeding bouts Authors:
The patterning of feeding and the quantity eaten in Aplysia californica with ad libitum food access cannot be explained by the effects of three variables previously shown to control the patterning ofExpand

Influence of isolation stress and inhibited protein biosynthesis on learning and memory in goldfish
TLDR
Goldfish, Carassius auratus auratus L. (Pisces, Cyprinidae), were trained by different kinds of training procedures under the influence of cycloheximide or puromycin, two inhibitors of the protein biosynthesis, and it is suggested that the amnestic effect of the inhibitors is caused by isolation treatment. Expand
Presence of conspecifics facilitates learning that food is inedible in Aplysia fasciata.
TLDR
Animals trained in the absence of a conspecific and then tested in its presence did not show signs of having learned, which indicates that interference with learning was apparently caused by inhibition of feeding behavior, rather than by block of the mechanisms underlying learning. Expand
Variables affecting long-term memory of learning that a food is inedible in Aplysia.
TLDR
Long-term memory of learning that a food is inedible was studied in Aplysia and effects of bilaterally sectioning the esophageal nerves that innervate the gut blocked the ability to learn that food isInedible but did not affect memory after the task had already been learned. Expand
Multiple memory processes following training that a food is inedible in Aplysia.
TLDR
It is reported that separable memory processes are also initiated by a training procedure affecting Aplysia feeding behavior, a model system for examining the neural mechanisms underlying the regulation of a complex behavior. Expand
Behavioral analysis of internal memory states using cooling-induced retrograde amnesia in Limax flavus
TLDR
Temporal evolution of internal memory states in a terrestrial mollusk, Limax flavus, was studied using cooling-induced retrograde amnesia and the results obtained was comparable with those obtained in a variety of animals. Expand
Effects of social isolation on memory formation.
TLDR
Memory formation for a single-trial passive avoidance task in day-old chicks was inhibited by intracranial administration of potassium chloride, ouabain, or cycloheximide when the chicks were trained in pairs, and it was suggested that the counteractive effect of isolation on cyclo Heximide-induced amnesia was due to isolation extending some phase of memory preceding the cyclo heximidesensitive protein synthesis-dependent phase.

Training in a novel environment improves the appetitive learning performance of the snail, Lymnaea stagnalis.
TLDR
After training in the novel environment, the conditioned response was retained for up to 12 days and thus provided a robust behavioral paradigm for the extension of the analysis to the neurophysiological mechanisms of factors affecting appetitive learning in molluscs. Expand
Isolation disrupts retention in preweanling rat pups.
TLDR
Both discrete cues used during training and returning the pup to the home cage with parents and siblings for 3 hr were found to alleviate the retention deficit caused by isolation, demonstrating that housing conditions can influence postacquisition memory processes in the young animal. Expand
Learned changes of feeding behavior in Aplysia in response to edible and inedible foods
TLDR
Feeding behavior in Aplysia fasciata and A. oculifera is modified by pairing the behavior with reinforcing consequences, and animals remain aroused, as shown by low response latency to alternate foods. Expand
