Jaekyoon Kim, a senior graduate student in the lab, is the first author on a recently published paper in Psychoneuroendocrinology entitled, “Distinct effects of estrogen receptor antagonism on object recognition and spatial memory consolidation in ovariectomized mice”. Jaekyoon’s studies indicate that ERα antagonism impairs spatial, but not object recognition, memory consolidation in ovariectomized mice, whereas ERβ antagonism impairs both types of memory at the doses tested. These data suggest that ERα and ERβ are necessary for OP memory consolidation, but that only ERβ is necessary for OR memory consolidation, in ovariectomized mice.
