Neurons that are responsible for new experiences interfere with the signals of neurons that contain memories and thereby disturb the recall of memories – at least in mice. The research group of Martin Fuhrmann of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) reports this phenomenon in the scientific journal ‘Nature Neuroscience’. The results of this study potentially shed new light on memory impairment in Alzheimer’s disease.
