memory

the part of a COMPUTER that stores information. The two main types of computer memory are RAM (Random Access Memory) and ROM (Read Only Memory). HARD DISKS and FLOPPY DISKS provide additional memory capacity for storing computer programs and data.

Performance of each group across Allocentric Spatial Memory trials is shown in Figure 2.
In this study, we used EPO and GAL as short-term treatment to detect its effect on spatial memory tested by Morris water maze and its effect on proliferation in dentate gyrus of hippocampus.
For aged mice, numbers of errors significantly increased relative to the error numbers for nonaged adult mice, reflecting significant decline in spatial memory ability with advanced age as measured during the RAWM memory phase [[F.sub.(1,34)] = 12.440, ** P = 0.001 (<0.01)] (Figure 8).
Further studies about the mechanism how cPKC[gamma] can enhance spatial memory performance in T1DM mice are required.
Training rats in the Morris water maze, a classical spatial memory task, increases hippocampal RyR2 protein levels and mRNA expression 12 and 24 h after training [44], suggesting RyR2 involvement in spatial memory processes.
After three to six months, tests revealed that the olive-oil mice performed significantly better on tests designed to assess their learning ability, spatial memory, and working memory than the mice fed normal chow.
(2) These processes are critical to hippocampal spatial memory formation and storage.
Finally, ripples are sharp and quick bursts of electrical energy, produced within the hippocampus, a brain component with an important role in spatial memory.
Rock influences spatial memory in adult rats, while classical music do not
Their topics include gravity in the brain as a reference for space and time perception, the effects of complete vestibular deafferentiation on spatial memory and the hippocampus in the rat: the Dunedin experience, vestibular-somato-sensory interactions: a mechanism in search of a function, out-of-body experiences and other complex dissociation experiences in a patient with unilateral peripheral vestibular damage and deficient multi-sensory integration, and the moving history of vestibular stimulation as a therapeutic intervention.
