New Theory of Memory Formation

New Theory of Memory Formation

The dorsal hippocampus receives spatial and temporal information from an upstream brain region known as the medial entorhinal cortex (MEC). Green staining shows MEC engram cells, which store a long-term fear memory and have the light sensitive optogenetic protein channelrhodopsin-2. Blue staining shows all cells in the MEC brain region, including non-engram cells (blue color staining only).
