The majority of the case studies in this book come from learning and memory studies in the field of molecular and cellular cognition, and this chapter includes a primer to this neuroscience field. This primer is also used to illustrate in detail a framework for classifying different categories of experiments in molecular and cellular cognition. Detailed accounts of landmark experiments in the field are used to demonstrate that even the best of experiments are fraught with interpretation problems, and that only the integration of different categories of experiments in the framework can resolve these ambiguities.

Keywords:   Experiment, causation, hippocampus, learning, memory, long-term potentiation, calmodulin kinase II
