Speaker information

Emma Wood, University of Edinburgh

Data collected over recent years provides strong evidence for a role of the hippocampal formation in episodic memory, but its precise contribution is still debated. Recognition memory tasks in rodents have provided a useful tool for investigating the neural basis of various aspects of episodic memory. In this talk I will describe the role of different hippocampal regions in object recognition, and in the associative recognition of objects and locations, objects and contexts, and objects, places and contexts. I will go on to discuss implications for the role played by hippocampal formation structures in episodic memory processes.
