Protein-Dependent Memory Modification
Protein synthesis in neurons in the brain is critical for stabilizing a recalled memory and storing it away again. On the other hand, protein degradation is required to modify a recalled memory based on new experiences, according to a study by Bong-Kiun Kaang and colleagues at Seoul National University, in South Korea (Science, DOI: 10.1126/science.1150541).
