Flashcards in Limbic System Deck (18):
1

the ability to recollect events or facts that have a specific temporal and spatial context

Declarative memory

Hippocampus important

2

ability to learn new motor skills

Procedural memory

3

memory that lasts for fractions of a second to seconds. Most sensory systems include this type of memory, and the processes underlying this type of memory takes place in sensory cortex.

Short-term memory

4

The type of memory that lasts for seconds to minutes

working memory

5

memory that lasts for days and years

long-term memory

6

The input to the hippocampus is from ___________ through a bundle of axons called the perforant path

entorhinal cortex

7

Hypothalamic input is complex b/c the entorhinal cortex receives widely distributed input from many areas of __________, as would be expected for a structure involved in memory consolidation

neocortex

8

a part of the cerebral cortex concerned with sight and hearing in mammals, regarded as the most recently evolved part of the cortex.

neocortex

9

basis for memory consolidation

CA1 and CA3 (Ammon’s horn ) neurons undergoing long term potentiation

10

Pick's disease

Anger problems
Memory problems

11

Dentate gyrus

contribute to the formation of new episodic memories

12

Ammon's horn

?

13

The hippocampus architecture: where one layer of neuron cell bodies arranged in a spiral semicircle (the cells in the Dentate gyrus) is surrounded by a larger spiral semicircle of neuronal cell bodies (_________).

Ammon’s horn

14

CA1, CA3

part of parallel input

15

The hippocampus architecture: where one layer of neuron cell bodies arranged in a spiral semicircle (__________) is surrounded by a larger spiral semicircle of neuronal cell bodies (Ammon’s horn).

the cells in the Dentate gyrus

16

CA3 synapses on?

CA1
NT: Glutamate
CA1 Receptor: AMPA, NMDA

17

The ________ does
not respond to its agonist glutamate under resting potential conditions because the mouth of the channel is blocked by magnesium ions at negative potentials.

NMDA receptor

18

NMDA stimulation by glutamate under depolarized conditions results in opening of Ca2+ Channel.
The influx in Ca2+ elicits an increase in intracellular calcium concentration, which stimulates the Ca2+-dependent protein
calmodulin
