Connectome: How is Information Organized in The Brain? | Hippocampal-Cortical Memory

3 min read

There is a recent paper in Nature Neuroscience, Organizing memories for generalization in complementary learning systems, stating that, “Classical views of systems consolidation, such as the standard theory of systems consolidation have held that memories reside in the hippocampus before transferring completely to the neocortex. Related neural network models, such as the complementary learning systems theory, have further offered a computational rationale for systems consolidation based on the benefits of coupling complementary fast and slow learning systems for integrating new information into existing knowledge. However, these theories lack explanations for why some memories remain forever hippocampal-dependent, as shown in a…...
