 A Brain System for Declarative Memory

Show Summary Details


The hippocampus must be considered in the context of how it performs its functions within the larger system of brain structures of which it is a part. Indeed, the hippocampus is only one of several structures that compose the full brain system that mediates declarative memory. This chapter identifies the main components of this system, outlines the anatomical pathways by which information flows through the system, and characterizes the functional contributions of its different components.
