Abstract

Learning and memory are complex biological processes that utilize multiple mechanisms in the brain. Some of these mechanisms, which involve phosphorylation of key regulatory brain proteins, have been identified.

Keywords:

  • learning and memory;
  • synaptic plasticity;
  • protein phosphorylation
