An accumulating body of evidence shows that reactivated long-term memory undergoes a dynamic process called reconsolidation, in which de novo protein synthesis is required to maintain the memory. These findings open up a new dimension in the field of memory research. However, few studies have shown how once-consolidated memory becomes labile. The authors' recent findings have demonstrated that pre-existing long-term memory becomes unstable via the ubiquitin/ proteasome-dependent protein… CONTINUE READING
