Abstract

In the formation of long-term memories, a "spaced" distribution of study sessions is more beneficial than closely spaced "massed" study sessions. Pagani et al. (2009) examine the molecular basis of this spacing effect in Drosophila and find a role for the SHP2 homolog, corkscrew, an activator of Ras/MAPK signaling, in establishing optimal spacing intervals.
