Space, time and learning in the hippocampus
The hippocampus participates in multiple functions, including spatial navigation, adaptive timing and declarative (notably, episodic) memory. How does it carry out these particular functions? The p...
Hippocampus: Mapping or memory?
TLDR
New findings on place cells point the way towards a reconciliation of the mapping and memory views in the hippocampus. Expand
The long and winding road to memory consolidation
An imaging study suggests memories may depend briefly on the hippocampus, and for a prolonged period on the entorhinal cortex, before being organized fully within the neocortex.
Value representation in the monkey hippocampus
TLDR
This work considers how these abstract variables might contribute to a comprehensive hippocampal representation of ongoing experience in the monkey hippocampus. Expand
The Hippocampus and Social Cognition
The function of memory is not simply to recall the past but also to form and update models of our experiences that help us navigate the complexities of the social world. In the present chapter, weExpand
Making Head or Tail of the Hippocampus : A Long-Axis Account of Episodic and Spatial Memory
While episodic and spatial memory both depend on the hippocampus, opposite gender differences in these functions suggest they are partly separate, with different neural underpinnings. The anterior ...
Cognitive maps and the hippocampus
TLDR
A recent study by Hartley et al. begins to identity the neural basis of route following and wayfinding in humans and raises important questions about the functions of the hippocampus. Expand
Hippocampus and Memory Can We Have Our Place and Fear It Too?
TLDR
It is shown that hippocampal cells respond to the combination of spatial location and conditioned stimuli in a nonspatial fear conditioning task, suggesting a potential bridge between the competing theories of hippocampal function. Expand
The hippocampus and memory: a comparative and ethological perspective
TLDR
Highlights include the development of new tasks with which to assess spatial/topographic memory in humans and monkeys, novel tests of relational memory in rats, and episodic-like memory tasks in birds. Expand

TLDR
Observations suggest the hippocampus might contribute to memory by identifying consistencies across experiences that constitute important new associations. Expand

Cognitive maps beyond the hippocampus
TLDR
A conceptual framework for the role of the hippocampus and its afferent and efferent structures in rodent navigation is presented and a number of practical experiments are suggested that could support or refute it. Expand
Memory, amnesia, and the hippocampal system
In this text, Neal J. Cohen and Howard Eichenbaum bring together converging findings from neuropsychology, neuroscience and cognitive science that provide the critical clues and constraints forExpand
Hippocampus, space, and memory
We examine two different descriptions of the behavioral functions of the hippocampal system. One emphasizes spatially organized behaviors, especially those using cognitive maps. The other emphasizesExpand
Retrograde amnesia and memory consolidation: a neurobiological perspective
TLDR
A simple neural network model is inspired that produces behavior consistent with experimental data and makes ideas about memory consolidation more concrete about how memory consolidation might actually occur. Expand

Memory consolidation, retrograde amnesia and the hippocampal complex
TLDR
The hippocampal formation and related structures are involved in certain forms of memory (e.g. autobiographical episodic and spatial memory) for as long as they exist and contribute to the transformation and stabilization of other form of memory stored elsewhere in the brain. Expand
Conservation of hippocampal memory function in rats and humans
TLDR
Normal rats demonstrated two forms of flexible memory expression, transitivity, the ability to judge inferentially across stimulus pairs that share a common element, and symmetry, the able to associate paired elements presented in the reverse of training order, indicating that non-spatial declarative processing depends specifically on the hippocampus in animals as it does in humans.

TLDR
The account presented here suggests that memories are first stored via synaptic changes in the hippocampal system, that these changes support reinstatement of recent memories in the neocortex, that neocortical synapses change a little on each reinstatement, and that remote memory is based on accumulated neocorticals changes.
