Cortisol and neurogenesis linkage[edit]

I just finished reading an article that implies that there is no correlation between cortisol and neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus, which is directly contradictory to what the wiki article says. (Thomas, Urban, Peterson, "Acute exposure to predator odor elicits a robust increase in corticosterone and a decrease in activity without altering proliferation in the adult rat hippocampus." Experimental Neurology Issue 201 (2006): 308-315.) Update the article to at least reflect that this is an open question?

We need to have the function of the gentate gyrus in the main page.

The corticosterone-neurogenesis discussion would be better suited for the adult neurogenesis page. Still, corticosterone is one of the best-identified negative regulators of adult neurogenesis. I'll read the paper but it's not that open of a question.

I'm planning on doing a major edit of this page since it's pretty weak. But I need to hone my wikipedia skills first.

Blueberries and neurogenesis[edit]

The reference to blueberries and neurogenesis improving spatial memory in rats no longer works, and is marked as such. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:06, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Spatial behavior[edit]

The concept of "consolidation of information into working memory" is confusing: isn't working memory a type of short-term memory, and consolidation a process that establishes long-term memory? The referenced source (Xavier 2009) does not mention consolidation. Nasorenga (talk) 20:19, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
