Dr. Joey Dunsmoor and colleagues publishes a review article entitled “Tag and capture: how salient experiences target and rescue nearby events in memory”.
It is a longstanding axiom in psychological research that personally meaningful and motivationally relevant experiences are prioritized in long-term memory. This review article explores a neurobiological model of long-term memory, known as synaptic tag-and-capture, and its behavioral counterpart, behavioral tagging, that provide a mechanistic framework for investigating how meaningful events promote memory preservation.
