  • All patients, regardless of how good their memory was, saw improvement in their memory after stimulation in a particular brain region known as the entorhinal area.

    Memory Gets Jolt in Brain Research

  • For their study, the team used mice that were genetically engineered to accumulate deposits of tau in a key memory center of the brain known as the entorhinal cortex, which is where that toxic protein starts to deposit in people.

  • In the new study, a team of doctors at the University of California, Los Angeles, focused on a neighboring area, called the entorhinal cortex.

  • The strongest projection is from the lateral nucleus to what is called the entorhinal cortex which is where the hippocampus receives most sensory input.

  • They identified three brain regions in which grey matter density was greatest in those with the most Facebook friends, but was not linked to the number of real-world friends they had: the superior temporal sulcus and the middle temporal gyrus, which have previously been associated with the ability to perceive social cues from facial expressions, and the entorhinal cortex, which is linked to memory for things like faces and names.

  • The entorhinal cortex is an area of the brain that is one of the first to be damaged by Alzheimer's.

    Memory Gets Jolt in Brain Research

  • Recent animal studies have shown that stimulating the entorhinal cortex improved the growth of brain cells in adult mice and appeared to enhance memory for locations and spatial knowledge.

  • In this way, some of the patients received stimulation of the hippocampus or entorhinal cortex only while navigating to locations 1, 3 and 5, while others received it only while navigating locations 2, 4 and 6.

    Deep brain stimulation enhances spatial memory

  • Six of them took shorter and faster paths to the locations they had learned during stimulation to the entorhinal cortex, recognizing the landmarks more readily, and even finding shortcuts, to navigate the required routes more quickly.

    Deep brain stimulation enhances spatial memory

  • Previous studies have shown that direct stimulation of the human hippocampus has detrimental effects on memory, but these new results identify the entorhinal cortex, and possibly the perforant path, as potential targets for memory enhancement.
