On March 15, 2018, a research team led by Professor Yi Zhong from the School of Life Sciences and IDG/McGovern Institute at Tsinghua University published a research article entitled Active Protection: Learning-Activated Raf/MAPK Activity Protects Labile Memory from Rac1-Independent Forgetting in Neuron. In this paper, the authors found that learning/training itself activates Raf/MAPK pathway to protect the newly formed labile memory from non-associative disruption. In other words, if such active protection mechanism is activated physiologically or by drug feeding, the English words you just remembered will not be forgotten because of a sudden phone call or a fire.
