The irreversible lesions technique precludes the analysis of the possibly critical role played by discrete brain sites in the several distinct stages of mnemonic processing (acquisition, consolidation, retrieval) during which these may be specifically but transiently active. On the contrary, the reversible functional inactivation techniques, by means of stereotaxic local microinjection of active compounds, make it possible to suppress the neuronal function of a discrete volume of nervous tissue… CONTINUE READING
