Title:
Consolidation of recognition memory in mice: What can we learn from forgetting?
Abstract:
The talk will provide an overview of general mechanisms underlying social memory in laboratory rodents with a focus on mice. In the first part the relevance of the processing of olfactory cues for social recognition in rats and mice will be presented including information about the brain areas involved in the generation of long-term social memory and cellular mechanisms thought to underlie memory consolidation. In the second part it is suggested that sensory modalities beyond olfaction may also be important in contributing to the long-term social memory trace including audition, taction, and vision. The third and final part of the talk refers to recent results of our laboratory: Experiments investigating the impact of pharmacological manipulations on interference phenomena suggesting that long-term social memory can be made – at least temporarily – resistant against forgetting in mice.
