Memory, Imprinting, and the Brain

Gabriel Horn

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses ways in which information is stored in the brain. Memory and habituation, and the characteristics of filial imprinting are discussed. Habituation is a form of learning wherein a behavioural or physiological response to a repeatedly applied stimulus wanes if the stimulus is not associated with a reward or punishment. Filial imprinting is the process whereby young birds form an attachment to their mother or some artificial substitute.

Keywords:   brain, memory, habituation, filial imprinting, birds
