Piantadosi, Patrick T.; Lieberman, Abby G.; Pickens, Charles L.; Bergstrom, Hadley C.; Holmes, Andrew – Learning & Memory, 2019
Cognitive flexibility refers to various processes which enable behaviors to be modified on the basis of a change in the contingencies between stimuli or responses and their associated outcomes. Reversal learning is a form of cognitive flexibility which measures the ability to adjust responding based on a switch in the stimulus--outcome…

Williams, McKenna E.; Graves, Lisa V.; DeJesus, Shannon Yandall; Holden, Heather M.; DeFord, Nicole E.; Gilbert, Paul E. – Learning & Memory, 2019
Spatial memory impairment is well documented in old age; however, less is known about spatial memory during middle age. We examined the performance of healthy young, middle-aged, and older adults on a spatial memory task with varying levels of spatial similarity (distance). On low similarity trials, young adults significantly outperformed…

van Buuren, Mariët; Wagner, Isabella C.; Fernández, Guillén – Learning & Memory, 2019
Intrinsic network interactions may underlie individual differences in the ability to remember. The default mode network (DMN) comprises subnetworks implicated in memory, and interactions between the DMN and frontoparietal network (FPN) were shown to support mnemonic processing. However, it is unclear if such interactions during resting-state…

Barker, Jacqueline M.; Bryant, Kathleen G.; Chandler, L. Judson – Learning & Memory, 2019
The loss of behavioral flexibility is common across a number of neuropsychiatric illnesses. This may be in part due to the loss of the ability to detect or use changes in action-outcome contingencies to guide behavior. There is growing evidence that the ventral hippocampus plays a critical role in the regulation of flexible behavior and…

Merz, Christian J.; Wolf, Oliver T. – Learning & Memory, 2019
The immediate extinction deficit describes a higher return of fear when extinction takes place immediately after fear acquisition compared to a delayed extinction design. One explanation for this phenomenon encompasses the remaining emotional arousal evoked by fear acquisition to be still present during immediate, but not delayed extinction. In…

Ilse, Arne; Prameswari, Virginia; Kahl, Evelyn; Fendt, Markus – Learning & Memory, 2019
Trait anxiety is considered to be a risk factor for anxiety disorders. The aim of the present study was to investigate how trait anxiety affects associative learning during and after an aversive event in laboratory rats. For this, rats were first submitted to a light-dark box test, followed by relief, safety, and fear learning. Our data…

Gomes, Carlos Alexandre; Mecklinger, Axel; Zimmer, Hubert – Learning & Memory, 2019
Recognition memory judgments can be influenced by a variety of signals including fluency. Here, we investigated whether the neural correlates of memory illusions (i.e., misattribution of fluency to prior study) can be modulated by fluency context. Using a masked priming/recognition memory paradigm, we found memory illusions for low confidence…

Brandwein, Nathan J.; Nguyen, Peter V. – Learning & Memory, 2019
Beta-adrenergic receptor (ß-AR) activation by norepinephrine (NE) enhances memory and stabilizes long-term potentiation (LTP), a form of synaptic plasticity believed to underlie some forms of hippocampal memory. LTP can occur at multiple synaptic pathways as a result of strong stimulation to one pathway preceding milder stimulation of an adjacent,…

Wolter, Michael; Huff, Ethan; Speigel, Talia; Winters, Boyer D.; Leri, Francesco – Learning & Memory, 2019
To test the hypothesis that drugs of abuse and their conditioned stimuli (CSs) enhance memory consolidation, the effects of post-training exposure to cocaine and nicotine were compared to the effects of post-training exposure to contextual stimuli that were paired with the effects of these drugs. Using the object recognition (OR) task, it was…

Xia, Yanfang; Gurkina, Angelina; Bach, Dominik R. – Learning & Memory, 2019
Threat conditioning is a common associative learning model with translational relevance. How threat-conditioned cues impact on formally unrelated instrumental behavior in humans is not well known. Such an effect is known as Pavlovian-to-instrumental transfer (PIT). While PIT with aversive primary Pavlovian reinforcers is established in nonhuman…

McManus, Jeffrey M.; Chiel, Hillel J.; Susswein, Abraham J. – Learning & Memory, 2019
Sensory feedback shapes ongoing behavior and may produce learning and memory. Motor responses to edible or inedible food in a reduced Aplysia preparation were examined to test how sensory feedback affects behavior and memory. Feeding patterns were initiated by applying a cholinomimetic onto the cerebral ganglion. Feedback from buccal muscles…

Broschard, Matthew B.; Kim, Jangjin; Love, Bradley C.; Wasserman, Edward A.; Freeman, John H. – Learning & Memory, 2019
A prominent theory of category learning, COVIS, posits that new categories are learned with either a declarative or procedural system, depending on the task. The declarative system uses the prefrontal cortex (PFC) to learn rule-based (RB) category tasks in which there is one relevant sensory dimension that can be used to establish a rule for…

Leganes-Fonteneau, Mateo; Nikolaou, Kyriaki; Scott, Ryan; Duka, Theodora – Learning & Memory, 2019
Stimuli conditioned with a substance can generate drug-approach behaviors due to their acquired motivational properties. According to implicit theories of addiction, these stimuli can decrease cognitive control automatically. The present study (n = 49) examined whether reward-associated stimuli can interfere with cognitive processes in the absence…

Haque, Rafi U.; Manzanares, Cecelia M.; Brown, Lavonda N.; Pongos, Alvince L.; Lah, James J.; Clifford, Gari D.; Levey, Allan I. – Learning & Memory, 2019
The entorhinal-hippocampal circuit is one of the earliest sites of cortical pathology in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Visuospatial memory paradigms that are mediated by the entorhinal-hippocampal circuit may offer a means to detect memory impairment during the early stages of AD. In this study, we developed a 4-min visuospatial memory paradigm called…

Wong, Edwin W.; Glasgow, Stephen D.; Trigiani, Lianne J.; Chitsaz, Daryan; Rymar, Vladimir; Sadikot, Abbas; Ruthazer, Edward S.; Hamel, Edith; Kennedy, Timothy E. – Learning & Memory, 2019
Netrin-1 was initially characterized as an axon guidance molecule that is essential for normal embryonic neural development; however, many types of neurons continue to express netrin-1 in the postnatal and adult mammalian brain. Netrin-1 and the netrin receptor DCC are both enriched at synapses. In the adult hippocampus, activity-dependent…
