Shaping Memory Reconsolidation through Activating Old Memories

Institute faculty Sze Chai Kwok, Huimin Wang and Yixuan Ku published paper in Neurobiology of Learning and Memory discovering that declarative memories rendered in an unstable state following retrieval could be remolded by new information within a particular time window. The findings provide important implications for educational practices in devising strategies for effective learning.
