Researchers Find Enzyme Crucial to Preservation of Memories
http://developer1.hhmi.org/news/tonegawa.html

Using a technique to eliminate the function of one enzyme in a restricted memory-related region in the brains of mice, researchers have shown that the enzyme is important in consolidating long-term memories.

According to the researchers, their experiments which showed that defects in a key biochemical signaling pathway were responsible for the animals’ inability to improve their long-term memory in a series of maze tests constitute a powerful approach to understanding molecules involved in learning and memory.

Research published in the September 21, 2001, issue of the journal Science.
