The effects of stress on learning and memory are diverse, ranging from impairment to facilitation. Many studies emphasize the major role of the hippocampus, mainly its CA1 and CA3 areas, in the process of memory formation under emotional and stressful conditions. In the current review, we summarize work which suggests that the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus is likely to play a pivotal role in defining the impact of stress on hippocampal functioning. We describethe effects of stress on… CONTINUE READING
