HLTH173 Lecture Notes - Lecture 4: Scholarpedia, Spatial Memory, Cell Potency
What we see, hear, what we tough, all of this. Types of consolidation - information ends up in the hippocampus through other regions of the brain and they integrate we remember makes it a memory. Every event in our life is an event that gets into the hippocampus that. Not that whatever we do, we remember. Event in our life is saved there needs to be consolidated and stored. Consolidation remembering when we need two types. When there will be changes in come other regions of the brain, info such as remote memory will be consolidated in the cortical area system consolidation. How all of this works - translate into proteins and will change shape of the post synaptic neurons glutamate, then the calcium ions will be released the post synaptic. Adding more receptors, changing shape of the spine. Spine density is needed for learning and memory older people have less spine density.
