    Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles 90095 1563, USA
    Behav Neurosci 115:26-32. 2001
    ..The results are discussed in terms of configural learning theory and are argued to be contrary to the predictions of scalar expectancy theory...

    Brian J Wiltgen
    Departments of Neurobiology, Psychology, Psychiatry and the Brain Research Institute, UCLA, Los Angeles, California 90095, USA
    Learn Mem 14:313-7. 2007
    ..These results suggest that context memories are specific early after training when they require the hippocampus, and become more general as they are permanently stored in the cortex...

    Matthew J Sanders
    UCLA Psychology Department, 1285 Franz Hall, Box 951563, Los Angeles, CA 90095 1563, USA
    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...

    Brian J Wiltgen
    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...
  5. ncbi request reprint Context fear learning in the absence of the hippocampus
    Brian J Wiltgen
    Psychology and the Brain Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, California 90095, USA
    J Neurosci 26:5484-91. 2006
    ..These results demonstrate that alternative systems can acquire context fear but do so less efficiently than the hippocampus...

    Brian J Wiltgen
    Department of Neurobiology, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Neuron 44:101-8. 2004
    ..The studies reviewed here represent the first exciting steps toward the understanding of the molecular, cellular, and systems mechanisms of how the brain stores our oldest and perhaps most defining memories...
  7. pmc A high through-put reverse genetic screen identifies two genes involved in remote memory in mice
    Anna Matynia
    Department of Neurobiology, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 3:e2121. 2008
    ..This study identifies some of the first genes required for remote memory, and suggests that screens of targeted mutants may be an efficient strategy to identify molecular requirements for this process...
