Abstract

Abstract Reverse genetic techniques, including gene ‘knockouts’ and transgenesis, allow defined mutations to be introduced into the mouse genome. The application of these techniques to neurobiology is beginning to provide a bridge between genes and cognition. Specifically, genetically altered mice make it possible to explore molecular mechanisms underlying implicit and explicit forms of learning, short-term and long-term memory, and emotional behaviors. The analysis of these mutant mice has begun to link specific behavioral deficits to defined changes in synaptic physiology.
