Abstract: Learning and memory are essential for day-to-day living. Equally important, their alterations are thoughtto underlie neurological and neurodegenerative disorders. Prior work in the field has found many key features of learning and memory—including long-term potentiation and memory engram neurons. However, many gaps in knowledge remain, particularly mechanisms at the molecular level. Here, I will…
