Welcome to SynaptiX - Systems Biology of Forgetting




That learning and the formation of memory is beneficial appears logical to us. But does it make sense

to store all memories unlimited or is advantageous to also forget memories?

While one could assume that "forgetting" is a passive process, that simply occurs comparable to 

aging or decay it is becoming increasingly clearer that forgetting is a highly regulated active biological

process. The SynaptiX RTD addresses how forgetting works from a Systems Biology perspective.
