Learning as Differentiation of Brain Cell Protein

Most papers of the present conference deal with psychological aspects of memory. Several approaches to memory research have been described within this field. The present chapter deviates considerably from these, because it is working at a molecular, cell biochemistry, and system level. What the other papers take for granted with respect to enduring changes in brain cells during encoding, storage, and retrieval is what the present chapter seeks to understand. There is presently an enormous gap between research at these levels. However, as we are all dealing with the same topic, it seems reasonable that we should be able to meet some time at the end. It may be too early for a merge of these approaches, but it is definitely not too early to formulate common levels for a future integration.
