Large parts of the brain store memories In the 1930s, Karl Lashley began a systematic quest to find the exact location of memory in the brain. He taught rats and monkeys a variety of tasks, then destroyed a part of their brain, reasoning that if the animals could not remember after the lesion, then he must have found the place where memories reside. After years of frustration, Lashley concluded that nothing short of near complete destruction of the brain caused the animals to forget their tasks, and it seemed that biological study of memory was not possible. More recent studies have shown that declarative memories are stored widely in specialized regions of cortex (according to the type of memory) and that retrieving this information involves frontal cortical areas.

    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.
