- Genetic approaches to molecular and cellular cognition: a focus on LTP and learning and memoryAnna Matynia
Department of Neurobiology, Brain Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California 90095, USA
Annu Rev Genet 36:687-720. 2002..Altogether, these findings not only demonstrate a role for plasticity in learning, they also lay down the foundations for the new field of molecular and cellular cognition...
- A high through-put reverse genetic screen identifies two genes involved in remote memory in miceAnna 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...
- DNA hypomethylation restricted to the murine forebrain induces cortical degeneration and impairs postnatal neuronal maturationLEAH K HUTNICK
Department of Human Genetics, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California at Los Angeles, 695 Charles Young Drive South, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
Hum Mol Genet 18:2875-88. 2009..Our results suggest that DNA methylation, through its role in modulating neuronal gene expression, plays multiple roles in regulating cell survival and neuronal maturation in the CNS...

- Neuronal competition and selection during memory formationJin Hee Han
Program in Neurosciences and Mental Health, Hospital for Sick Children, 555 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1X8, Canada
Science 316:457-60. 2007..Our results suggest a competitive model underlying memory formation, in which eligible neurons are selected to participate in amemorytrace as a function of their relative CREB activity at the time of learning...
