Description
Outline of Lecture 74 (04-01 A; Baraban) Memory I. The hippocampus plays a critical role in the consolidation of memory 1) Working and long-term memory are qualitatively distinct - Patient H.M., who has a hippocampus lesion, has intact long-term and working memory, but is unable to form new long-term memories 2) Procedural memory is different than declarative memory - H.M. is able to improve in motor tasks with practice, but does not recall that practice has occurred - Mammillary bodies and anterior thalamus are also linked to memory consolidation - fMRI and PET studies suggest right hippocampus is important in spatial memory whereas left hippocampus is important in declarative/verbal memory II. Amygdala and emotional memory - Fear
