Molecular basis for memory and learning

Brain development and plasticity share similar signalling pathways

October 2017. Learning and memory are two important functions of the brain that are based on the brain’s plasticity. Scientists from Goethe University Frankfurt report in the latest issue of the scientific journal “Cell Reports” how a trio of key molecules directs these processes. Their findings provide new leads for the therapy of Alzheimer’s disease. (Mehr in: Pressemitteilungen – idw – Informationsdienst Wissenschaft)
