KAIST made discovery in how memories are made in brain Updated: 2021-07-13 17:02:55 KST

Researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology announced on Tuesday that they've made progress in discovering the mechanism of how memories are stored by neurons in our brains.
The latest research finds that what strengthens the connection between two neurons, called long-term potentiation has a huge part in deciding which neurons will encode memories.
When the team stimulated a particular connection, or synapse, before giving a horrific experience to a rat, the memory was encoded in that particular synapse.
The team expects this finding could contribute to the research of diseases that affect memory, such as dementia.
