    PLoS Biol 10:e1001262. 2012
    ..These results provide a mechanistic link between facilitation of AMPA receptor synaptic delivery and improved hippocampal-dependent learning, induced by a pharmacological cognitive enhancer...

    Shira Knafo
    Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa CSIC UAM, Nicolas Cabrera 1, Madrid 28049, Spain
    Curr Opin Neurobiol 22:405-11. 2012
    ..Here we review the latest findings on two prototypical examples of these shared mechanisms: the Ras-PI3K pathway and the intracellular signaling elicited by neural cell adhesion molecules interacting with growth factor receptors...
