The Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory

Chapter 4 and 5 focused on studies of amnesia in humans and on the effects of hippocampal damage in animals. This chapter presents complementary evidence from other, related approaches. These approaches involve monitoring the ongoing operation of the human hippocampus and related brain structures during memory performance, providing a virtual ‘window’ into the inner workings of the normal brain. This is accomplished at two levels of analysis: by using functional neuroimaging methods in normal humans and by recording the activity patterns of single neurons in animals.

Keywords:   hippocampus, memory performance, human brain, functional neuroimaging, neurons, animal brain
