NYU Researchers Isolate Portion of the Brain Needed to Link Experiences in Forming Memories

New York University researchers have determined that the brain’s hippocampus is important for linking together individual elements of our experiences in order to form memories. Their study, which appears in the latest issue of the journal Neuron, helps to illuminate how something as complex as our memories arises out of a much more simple process of bridging gaps in experience. It may have implications for treating memory-related dysfunction arising from aging, Alzheimer’s Disease, or amnesia.
