Studies of learning and memory have provided a great deal of evidence implicating hippocampal mechanisms in the initial storage of facts and events. However, until recently, there were few hints as to how and where this information was permanently stored. A recent series of rodent molecular and cellular cognition studies provide compelling evidence for the involvement of specific neocortical regions in the storage of information initially processed in the hippocampus. Areas of the prefrontal… CONTINUE READING
