    Eur J Pharmacol 463:217-23. 2003
    ..In this review, we examine the evidence that the hippocampus plays a role in fear conditioning. We then critically examine hypotheses concerning its exact role in learning and memory for cued and context fear conditioning...

    Matthew J Sanders
    UCLA Psychology Department, 1285 Franz Hall, Los Angeles, CA 90095 1563, USA
    Neurobiol Learn Mem 80:123-9. 2003

    M J Sanders
    Department of Psychology, University of Miami School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA
    Brain Res 904:141-4. 2001

    Matthew J Sanders
    UCLA Psychology Department, Los Angeles, CA, USA
    Neurobiol Learn Mem 84:33-41. 2005

    Mol Cell Biol 26:9105-15. 2006

    Department of Neurobiology, Brain Research Institute and Brain Injury Research Center, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, West Los Angeles Healthcare Center, Los Angeles, California 90095 1763, USA
    J Neurotrauma 23:1802-13. 2006
    ..Given the extensive interactions of the neuroendocrine-immune systems, these results demonstrate that TBI produces lasting dysregulation amidst the central substrates for allostasis and circadian rhythmicity...

    Psychology Department, and the Brain Research Institute, UCLA, Los Angeles, California 90095, USA
    Learn Mem 12:327-33. 2005
    ..Knockouts are immune to this effect because of the reduced neurosteroid sensitivity that accompanies deletion of the delta subunit. Relationships between neurosteroids, hippocampal excitability, and memory are discussed...
