Abstract

During the past decade, a number of lines of evidence have suggested that macromolecular events are involved in the storage of information in the nervous system. These include demonstrations of changes in RNA and protein during learning experiences, reported transfer of memory to other animals by tissue extracts and the use of drugs to affect learning, memory storage and recall, A large number of hypotheses, based primarily on genetic and developmental principles, have been formulated dealing with the molecular basis of the memory trace. These are mainly concerned with the events which occur following electrical storage of information and lead to the permanent storage of memory traces.
