 Bill Griesar
  21st-Dec-2009
Description: Memory consolidation: a hypothetical process (or processes) by which new memories become less fragile & more permanently “fixed”. Two “types” of consolidation: Fixation of memories within networks of linked neurons (minutes to hours), Reorganization of memories that occurs over longer periods (months to years). Topics include: Evidence for short term fixation, Evidence for long term reorganization. Stimulant drugs given after learning enhance recall.
