Memory, Alzheimer’s Dynamic Mechanisms Revealed in New Study

Memory, Alzheimer’s Dynamic Mechanisms Revealed in New Study
A study newly published in the journal Nature Neuroscience reveals that activity within the memory-oriented brain region of the hippocampus is in fact bidirectional, a key observation that could fuel new advancements into Alzheimer's research. williamssThe study, entitled "Reversal of theta rhythm flow through intact hippocampal circuits," (Nature Neuroscience (2014) doi:10.1038/nn.3803) is coauthored by Dr. Sylvain Williams, PhD, and his research team; Jesse Jackson, Bénédicte Amilhon, Frédéric Manseau, andChristian Kortleven at the Research Centre of the Douglas Mental Health University Institute and McGill University, at Montreal, Canada; Romain Goutagny ad Jean-Bastien Bott of Université de Strasbourg-CNRS, Strasbourg, France; and Steven L Bresslerof the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida; may lead to an increased understanding of how neural circuitry works within the brain, impacting dynamic mechanisms that control memory and the role that the subiculum, a major component of the hippocampus, plays in brain health and c
