1
Q

____ memories are available to consciousness: daily episodes, words and meanings, history

A

Declarative

2
Q

where are declarative memories stored on the short term

A

hippocampus

3
Q

where are declarative memories stored on the long term

A

cortical sites

4
Q

where are nondeclarative memories stored on the short term 

A

their storage is diffuse throughout the brain

5
Q

where is long term sotrage of nondeclatative memory

A

cerebellum basal ganglia, promotors cortex, other motor behavior sites

6
Q

The ___ is needed for declarative memory

A

hippocampus

7
Q

Patient RB: bilateral brain damage to area CA1 of the hippocampus

 

how was her memory imapirment compared to HM?

A

 similar to but less severe than HM’s

8
Q

What is Consolidation 

A

acquisition and storage of declarative memory

9
Q

what does consolidation involve? 

A

 transfer from
hippocampus to cortical structures

10
Q

Long term memory (ENGRAM) depends on changes in 

A

synaptic transmission efficacy

11
Q

 LTP is ___ specific

A

input

12
Q

___ ion channel is critical to LTP

A

NMDA receptor 

13
Q

what does NMDAR need to open? 

A

1. lignad binding

2. coagonist glycine

3. sufficient depoalrization to kick out Mg

14
Q

LTP strengthening mechanisms:

A

1. Insertion of more AMPA post synaptic
receptors


2. More pre synaptic vesicles = increased
Glu release = longer channel open
time
3. Metabotropic Glu (mGlu) receptors
activated
--> kinases. IP3 promotes release of intracellular Ca, PKC enhances NMDA currents

4. New synaptic (dendritic) spines grown


5. Protein synthesis

15
Q

if ___ is blocked by anisomycin,  LTP decays within a few hours of the tetanus stimulus

A

protein syntehsis

16
Q

long term depression results in a 

A

long term decrease in synaptic strength 

17
Q

 when Shaffer collateral-CA1 synapses are stimulated at a low rate (1 Hz) for long periods (10-15 min) what happens? 

A

EPSP is depressed for several hours

18
Q

Can LTD effect LTP? 

A

-LTD can erase LTP, and vice versa

19
Q

____ is not avaialble to conciousness

A

nondeclarative memory

20
Q

• Working memory is the ability to hold & manipulate information in mind for___ to ___ while it is used to achieve a particular goal 

A

 seconds to minutes

21
Q

what are 3 important areas for declarative memory

A

1. hippocampus

2. medial temporal lobe structures

3. midline diencephalic regions

22
Q

___ is a model for declarative memory

A

LTP

23
Q

Pyramidal CA3 neurons in hippocampus send axons (Schaffer collaterals) to synapse on___

A

 pyramidal CA1 neurons.

24
Q

Ltp

A baseline recording is established by providing a low-frequency & low-intensity stimulus such as when

A

only ampa receptors are activated

25
Q

pathway 1 -- high frequency and high intensity stimulus

pathway 2 -- low intensity and low freqeuncy stimulus 

what is observed in pathway 1? 

A

ltp

a strengthening of the EPSP after returning to the low-frequency & low-intensity stimulus

26
Q

add AP-5 or MK-801 during tetatnus. what effect on ltp?

A

these are ndma anatagonist so block ltp

27
Q

add AP-5 or MK-801 after tetatnus. what effect on ltp?

A

ltp occurs 

28
Q

NMDA receptor activation is required for ___ of LTP.

A

INDUCTION

29
Q

: PKC and CaMKII diffuse across synapse and cause

A

enhanced release of glutamate after terminal depoalrization

30
Q

PKA and CaMKII increase AMPA receptor currents by insertion of ___

A

additional AMPA receptors

31
Q

PKC and PTK increase ___ currents.

A

NMDA

32
Q

 long-term LTP in hippocampus requires ___ and ____

A

gene transcription and protein translation

33
Q

how are kinases involved in ltp? 

A

1. kinases diffuse to the CA1 cell nuclei influencing genes that trigger long- lasting post-synaptic modifications

2. In the presynaptic terminals kinases   influence genes that cause presynaptic structural modifications (not shown).
