The Neurobiology of Sleep: Genetics, cellular physiology and subcortical networks
To appreciate the neural underpinnings of sleep, it is important to view this universal mammalian behaviour at multiple levels of its biological organization. Molecularly, the circadian rhythm ofExpand

The authors empirically show that abrupt changes in performance are not necessarily based on a shift from algorithm to memory-based processing, but rather and more generally, that they occur whenever a more efficient task strategy is generated. Expand

Dissociating Hippocampal versus Basal Ganglia Contributions to Learning and Transfer
This is the first time that a single task has been used to demonstrate a double dissociation between the associative learning impairments caused by hippocampal versus basal ganglia damage/dysfunction, and has implications for understanding the distinct contributions of the medial temporal lobe and basal Ganglia to learning and memory.

A key discovery from the work with patients, monkeys, and rodents was that medial temporal lobe structures are essential for just one kind of memory, which has come to be termed declarative memory. Expand
