Glucocorticoids Promote Fear Generalization by Altering Memory Encoding Neuronal Ensembles

      Stressful and emotionally arousing events are generally remembered well, which may have adaptive value. Yet, aberrant memory processing of these events may trigger inappropriately expressed and vivid fear memories. Glucocorticoid hormones (GCs) are released from the adrenal cortex in response to stressful experiences and they enhance memory processing and consolidation. Here tested whether and how GCs modify memory strength and memory generalization by investigating properties of memory-encoding neuronal ensembles.
