Neural and Behavioural Plasticity

This chapter is based on the evidence that the trace(s) held in the right and left hemisphere contain differing accounts of an experience, and that memory formation reconciles these two accounts. There is a close causal connection between retrieval cycles and phases of memory. The interaction between the two hemispheres of the brain can bring about sharply timed change in the information available to the hemisphere, which controls response. In the multiphase model of memory formation in the chick, the timings of the transitions between the main phases coincide with those of the retrieval events occurring in the same period of time. It is likely that different steps in memory formation are associated with each of the early retrieval events, and these steps are discussed in the chapter. The brain structures involved in retrieval events are largely unknown. Hippocampus is perhaps involved in finding information in memory.
