The paper examines research by Haque, et. al. that used rats to better understand how to ward off the effects of aging on the brain, and research by Briggs, Fitz and Riccio that gauged information loss in conditioned learning when contexts change. The paper describes these studies and relates that both studies could have long-term implications for helping academicians understand how to enhance learning in human and non-human species.
