Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on declarative memory consolidation at the human brain system level and recent advances in characterizing the neural underpinnings of this fundamental mnemonic operation. It provides a short overview of three lines of research on memory consolidation: one investigating the nature and duration of retrograde amnesia in brain damaged patients, one testing the vulnerability of memories to electroconvulsive therapy, and another probing the effect of sleep on forgetting curves.

Keywords: declarative memory consolidation; human brain; memory consolidation; retrograde amnesia; memories; electroconvulsive therapy; sleep; forgetting curves
