Journal Club – Enhanced presynaptic mitochondrial energy production…” – Presented by Yonghak Seo

Yonghak presents Underwood et. al. 2023 “Enhanced presynaptic
mitochondrial energy production is required for memory formation” published in Nature Scientific Reports on 02 September 2023. The study investigated whether increased mitochondrial respiration in the hippocampus plays a role in long-term memory formation, particularly in the context of fear training.
