Visual memory-deficit amnesia: a distinct amnesic presentation and etiology.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1998-04-28)
We describe a form of amnesia, which we have called visual memory-deficit amnesia, that is caused by damage to areas of the visual system that store visual information. Because it is caused by a deficit in access to stored ...
Music, emotion, and autobiographical memory: they're playing your song.
(Mem Cognit, 1999-11)

Things learned in early adulthood are remembered best.
(Mem Cognit, 1998-01)
Evidence is reviewed that for older adults the period from 10 to 30 years of age produces recall of the most autobiographical memories, the most vivid memories, and the most important memories. It is the period from which ...
Spatial imagery preserves temporal order.
Line drawings were presented in either a spatial or a nonspatial format. Subjects recalled each of four sets of 24 items in serial order. Amount recalled in the correct serial order and sequencing errors were scored. In ...

Seventy-six undergraduates were given the titles and first lines of Beatles' songs and asked to recall the songs. Seven hundred and four different undergraduates were cued with one line from each of 25 Beatles' songs and ...
Properties of word cues for autobiographical memory.
(Psychol Rep, 1997-08)
A sample of 124 words were used to cue autobiographical memories in 120 adults varying in age from 20 to 73 years. Individual words reliably cued autobiographical memories of different ages with different speeds. For all ...

Heptahelical receptor signaling: beyond the G protein paradigm.

Enhanced myocardial relaxation in vivo in transgenic mice overexpressing the beta2-adrenergic receptor is associated with reduced phospholamban protein.
(J Clin Invest, 1996-04-01)
To assess the effect of targeted myocardial beta-adrenergic receptor (AR) stimulation on relaxation and phospholamban regulation, we studied the physiological and biochemical alterations associated with overexpression of ...
