Memory, Imprinting, and the Brain: An Inquiry into Mechanisms

Gabriel Horn


Looking at both behavioural and molecular levels of analysis, this book presents the results of recent research into the biochemistry and neural mechanisms of imprinting. The book discusses some of the difficulties that researchers have encountered in analyzing the neural basis of memory, and describes ways in which these difficulties have been overcome through the analysis of memories underlying habituation and imprinting. It also considers the biochemical consequences of imprinting and its cerebral localization, and examines the relationships between human and animal memory.

Keywords: behavioural analysis, molecular analysis, neural mechanisms, imprinting, habituation, human memory, animal memory
