"Molecular Mechanisms of Memory" is a collection that compiles research data on how memory works at the molecular level. It reconciles recent contradictory findings and has been used to build the molecular model of memory described in Molecular correlates of the two-component model of long-term memory.
The collection will help you learn the most important facts known about molecular mechanisms of memory and better understand the role of the hippocampus, NMDA receptors, metabotropic glutamate receptor, protein kinase C, potassium flow, cAMP, gene expression, transcription, protein synthesis, nitric oxide, arachidonic acid and more.
