  1. ncbi request reprint Estrogen and NMDA receptor antagonism: effects upon reference and working memory
    I A Wilson
    Department of Neuroscience and Neurology, University of Kuopio, Finland
    Eur J Pharmacol 381:93-9. 1999
    ..These results suggest that short term estrogen deprivation has no effect upon spatial-reference memory, while it impairs spatial working memory. This effect is probably not mediated by NMDA receptors...

    J Neurosci 24:3870-8. 2004
    ..These observations help to reconcile previously divergent characterizations of spatial representation in aged rats and suggest a model of cognitive aging and hippocampal function...
  4. ncbi request reprint Place cells of aged rats in two visually identical compartments
    Iain A Wilson
    Department of Neuroscience and Neurology, University of Kuopio, P O Box 1627 Harjulantie 1, Kuopio 70211, Finland
    Neurobiol Aging 26:1099-106. 2005
    ..These findings suggest that the hippocampal network of aged rats is able to process changes in internally generated cues without rigidity, but that incomplete processing of external landmark cues may lead to impaired spatial learning...
  5. ncbi request reprint Age-associated alterations of hippocampal place cells are subregion specific
    Iain A Wilson
    Department of Neuroscience and Neurology, University of Kuopio, Kuopio 70211, Finland
    J Neurosci 25:6877-86. 2005
    ..Thus, aged CA3 cells failed to rapidly encode new spatial information compared with young CA3 cells. These data suggest an important and selective contribution of CA3 dysfunction to age-related memory impairment...
  6. pmc Neurocognitive aging: prior memories hinder new hippocampal encoding
    Iain A Wilson
    Department of Neuroscience and Neurology, University of Kuopio, Kuopio 70211, Finland
    Trends Neurosci 29:662-70. 2006
    ..As a result of such reorganization in aged memory-impaired individuals, information that is already stored would become the dominant pattern of the hippocampus to the detriment of the ability to encode new information...
