Long-duration hippocampal sharp wave ripples improve memory
Hippocampal sharp wave ripples (SPW-Rs) have been hypothesized as a mechanism for memory consolidation and action planning. The duration of ripples shows a skewed distribution with a minority of long-duration events. We discovered that long-duration ripples are increased in situations demanding memory in rats. Prolongation of spontaneously occurring ripples by optogenetic stimulation, but not randomly induced ripples, increased memory during maze learning. The neuronal content of randomly induced ripples was similar to short-duration spontaneous ripples and contained little spatial information. The spike content of the opt...

Study: Outdoor Learning Benefits Teachers And Students
BOSTON (CBS) – A new study out of the United Kingdom finds that learning in the great outdoors for as little as an hour a week can do wonders both for children and teachers alike. Researchers interviewed teachers and engaged 9 to 11-year-olds in focus groups at three primary schools in Wales which taught classes for at least an hour a week outside of the building. The students said when they were learning outdoors, they felt they had more freedom, were more able to express themselves, and enjoyed being able to move around more. Teachers said their students were more engaged and they themselves reported greater job s...

Early life stress plus overexpressed FKBP5 protein increases anxiety behavior

Moreover, the researchers demonstrate this genetic-early life stress interaction amplifies anxiety by selectively altering signaling of the enzyme AKT in the dorsal hippocampus, a portion of the brain primarily responsible for cognitive functions like learning and memory.
