Reconsolidation of human motor memory: From boundary conditions to behavioral interventions-How far are we from clinical applications?

Reconsolidation of human motor memory: From boundary conditions to behavioral interventions-How far are we from clinical applications? Behav Brain Res. 2018 Jul 03;353:83-90 Authors: Silva MB, Soares AB Abstract The memory reconsolidation hypothesis states that a previously consolidated and stable memory can return to a temporary labile state after retrieved, requiring a new stabilization process. During the labile period, the memory trace is vulnerable to modification, which provides a potential therapeutic opportunity to weaken, updated or strengthen that memory. As such, reconsolidation has been the subject of numerous studies in different domains of human memory that seek strategies to treat post-traumatic disorders and erase or modify pathological memories. A few studies have also investigated the impairment effects of behavioral interferences on motor memory. However, very little has been researched and written about the possibility of using reconsolidation to enhance motor skill learning. Here, we present a critical review of the literature and trace possible applications for human motor memory reconsolidation. We discuss the boundary conditions and the mechanisms to trigger the reconsolidation process, as well as the effects of behavioral interventions in modifying the performance of motor skills.

McLaughlinAbstractSmaller hippocampal volume is associated with increased risk for PTSD following trauma, but the hippocampal functions involved remain unknown. We propose a conceptual model that identifies broad impairment in hippocampus-dependent associative learning as a vulnerability factor for PTSD. Associative learning of foreground cues and background context is required to form an integrated representation of an event. People with poor associative learning may have difficulty rem...

PSA: there’s some text missing from the headlines popping up lately that show quitting drinking improves women’s mental health. Essentially, the findings of the Canadian Medical Association Journal are that not drinking at all is actually better for your health than drinking when you’re stressed, no matter how much you want to lean into the whole a-glass-of-red-wine-a-day-is-good-for-you thing. But it’s not that simple. There’s no foolproof formula like: “If I stop drinking, then my mental health will improve” (as nice as that would be). For many of us, there’s legwork neces...
