The biology of learning, and short-term and long-term memory, as revealed by Aplysia and other organisms, is reviewed. 

Protein degradation and memory formation

Introduction. Mental processes in the human brain

Advances in neuroscience have now led to wide acceptance in science and medicine that all aspects of the authors' mental life—their thoughts and memories—are derived from biological material.

Synaptic Dialogue: Substrate for Protein-Synthesis-Independent Long-Term Memory

The present article makes three points concerning the mechanism of long-lasting memory. First, such a mechanism requires 'synaptic dialogue', a term coined by Colley and Routtenberg (1993) to

The regulation of transcription in memory consolidation.

The complexity of transcription regulation, its temporal progression, and the effectors produced all contribute to the flexibility and persistence of long-term memory formation.

Does autophagy work in synaptic plasticity and memory?

Several lines of evidence supporting a physiological role of autophagy in memory processes are discussed, and the possible mechanistic scenarios for how Autophagy could fulfill this function are discussed.

Molecular biology of learning: modulation of transmitter release.

This review focuses primarily on short-term sensitization of the gill and siphon reflex in the marine mollusk, Aplysia californica, and analyses of this form of learning provide direct evidence that protein phosphorylation dependent on cyclic adenosine monophosphate can modulate synaptic action.

Gene discovery in Drosophila: new insights for learning and memory.

The current state of genetic analysis of learning and memory in the fruitfly, Drosophila melanogaster, is reviewed, suggesting that core cellular mechanisms of simple forms of learning are evolutionarily conserved and biological pathways discovered in invertebrates are likely to be conserved in vertebrates as well.

Time, Love, Memory: A Great Biologist and His Quest for the Origins of Behavior

Focusing on the genes that determine human behaviour, this book discusses how human beings' emotional responses can be genetically isolated and manipulated. The author also considers the political

Memory: From Mind to Molecules

Learning and memory have traditionally held a central place in psychology and, during the past several decades, have also become very important—a preoccupation, some would say—for neurobiology.
