Flashcards in Limbic System Deck (18):
the ability to recollect events or facts that have a specific temporal and spatial context
ability to learn new motor skills
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.
The type of memory that lasts for seconds to minutes
memory that lasts for days and years
The input to the hippocampus is from ___________ through a bundle of axons called the perforant path
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
a part of the cerebral cortex concerned with sight and hearing in mammals, regarded as the most recently evolved part of the cortex.
basis for memory consolidation
CA1 and CA3 (Ammon’s horn ) neurons undergoing long term potentiation
contribute to the formation of new episodic memories
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 (_________).
part of parallel input
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
CA3 synapses on?
CA1 Receptor: AMPA, NMDA
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.
