A Systems  Neuroscience  Approach to Memory  How would you respond to the following questions:  What did you have for dinner last night?  What is the capital of Spain?  How do you maintain your balance when you ride a bicycle? As you were thinking about the answer to each question, you were accessing  information from different memory systems.  Understanding that there are  different kinds of memory, with different addresses in the brain, is the  essence of the science of memory.  The dissociation of memory processes  includes a distinction between declarative or explicit memory (conscious  retrieval of events and facts) and nondeclarative or implicit memory

Instead, the focus was on working memory (a kind of short-term memory that requires monitoring and manipulation of information) and long-term declarative memory for events (episodic memory). The brain network that supports episodic memory includes medial temporal lobe structures (hippocampus and surrounding cortices) in concert with areas within prefrontal cortex and posterior parietal cortex....

    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.
