Established by glutamatergic synapse
Flashbulb memory: rise in activity of modulatory inputs acting on and primes pyramidal cells
LTP: structural modification of the synapse, post and presynaptic terminals gets physically
Memory upon recall is a constantly dynamic process (I have to rebuild the house). Therefore any
memory can be inaccurate; things get added and removed from it (it can be built quite
different). It is never 100% accurate. If left alone it doesn’t get modified and remains intact.
Reconsolidation: process of memory access that makes the memory prone to change.
LTP: the process by which the pyramidal cells can label memory pieces in cortical regions and
therefore able to consolidate acquired memory (11:20)
Synaptic connections related to a single episode.
When a memory gets activated the connection gets strengthened.
Cells that fire together wire together. “Hebb’s”
We have no idea how the molecular changes leads to the behavioural changes.
