Melatonin enhances memory


Researchers unveiled the intricate mechanisms through which melatonin enhances memory. They investigated how melatonin and its derivatives influence the phosphorylation levels of key memory proteins.

By focusing on male mice, they found that specific compounds facilitate the formation of long-term memory by modulating certain proteins' phosphorylation levels. These breakthrough findings may pave the way for novel treatments for age-related memory impairment.

Melatonin and its derivatives, AMK and ramelteon, impact the phosphorylation levels of memory-related proteins, revealing their role in memory enhancement.

Results showed that melatonin promotes long-term memory formation by modulating protein phosphorylation, offering potential for developing new memory-enhancing drugs.
