Eichenbaum Neuroanatomy The para-hippocampal region mediates convergence of this information and extends the persistence of neocortical memory representations. The hippocampus encodes the sequences of places and events that compose episodic memories, and links them together through their common elements. Declarative Memory: Declarative memory is composed of our capacity for episodic and semantic memory, and our ability for conscious recollection and ‘flexible’ memory expression PROCEDURAL MEMORY EMOTIONAL MEMORY WORKING MEMORY PRIMING The representation of a series of actions or perceptual processing functions that occur unconsciously, and typically result in increased speed or accuracy with repetitions. The representation of a positive or negative affect associated with specific stimuli. Typically not subject to conscious recollection but reflected in attraction, avoidance or autonomic nervous system activation. The representation of items held in consciousness during experiences or after retrieval of memories. Short-lasting and associated with active rehearsal or manipulation of information. The facilitation of recognition, reproduction or biases in selection of stimuli that have recently been perceived.

Hippocampal Memory System This anatomical organization complements the findings from studies of amnesia, leading to the working hypothesis that the parahippocampal region and hippocampus contribute to memory by altering the nature, persistence and organization of memory representations within the cerebral cortex.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
