Optogenetic enhancement of everyday memory.

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearch


Everyday memories are encoded in the hippocampus and decay very rapidly. In contrast, everyday memory with novel experience before or after remains for a long time. Our research group applied optogenetics to behavioural test in mice. We revealed the possibility that non-canonical release of dopamine from the locus coeruleus into the hippocampus change trivial everyday memory to long-term memory.
