Show Summary Details


This chapter examines neuropsychological and non-human animal findings and discusses ways in which neuroimaging research has advanced our understanding of memory systems in the human brain. It focuses on the question of whether brain-imaging data can decide between unitary vs. multiple memory systems, i.e. whether information is stored, consolidated, and retrieved always within one and the same biological substrate or whether distinct systems are involved depending on the type of material or task.

Keywords: neuroimaging; memory systems; human brain; brain-imaging data; unitary; multiple memory systems
