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.
