Dr. Eric Kandel will discuss two perspectives on our understanding of the neural systems and molecular mechanisms that contribute to learning and long-term memory.
– How different memory systems were identified in the human brain and how they were shown to be involved in two major forms of neural memory storage: 1) simple memory for perceptual and motor skills and 2) complex memory for facts and events.
– The studies that demonstrated that long-term memory is reflected in the growth of new synaptic connections.
This will lead into a discussion on how our insights into memory storage are allowing us to understand the two major forms of age related memory loss.
