    • 7 Pages

    Our logic for choosing kinesin for developing CNS therapeutics is based upon our own research, which found that kinesins are transcriptionally upregulated during memory storage and that they are both necessary and sufficient to induce long-term memory storage (LTM) in the marine snail, Aplysia californica (Puthanveettil et al., 2008; Fig 1). Furthermore, other researchers have also discovered that an increase in specific kinesin function in the mouse forebrain improves working memory (Wong et al…

    mechanisms in the brain that underlie learning and memory processes. Indeed, induction of LTP is observed coincidently with learning events in the hippocampus of free-moving animals and this learning-induced LTP occludes subsequent electrical induction of LTP in the hippocampus (Whitlock et al., 2006). Conversely, saturation of LTP in the hippocampus interferes with spatial memory formation (Barnes et al., 1994). A recent work demonstrates that in vivo artificial induction of LTD impaired recall…

Memory learned by the striatum is less adaptable to different situations and therefore your brain…
