Learning & Memory
Mechanisms of Information Storage in the Nervous System
- H. Matthies, Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Magdeburg, GDR
The Magdeburg Neurobiological Symposia have been run since 1967, and in that time have reflected the growth and divergence of neurobiology. This volume covers the neurobiology of learning, memory and neuronal plasticity, and includes contributions from an international group of attendees who reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. The book is divided into four sections: synaptic long-term potentiation, hippocampal functions, biochemistry of memory formation and principles, and modification of learning and memory, and constitutes the most up-to-date research currently being carried out in this important field.
Of interest to neuroscientists, behaviorists and psychologists.
