Consciousness, memory, and the hippocampal system: What kind of connections can we make?

Howard Eichenbaum, Neal J. Cohen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Gray's account is remarkable in its depth and scope but too little attention is paid to poor correspondences with the literature on hippocampal/subicular damage, the theta rhythm, and novelty detection. An alternative account, focusing on hippocampal involvement in organizing memories in a way that makes them accessible to conscious recollection but not in access to consciousness per se, avoids each of these limitations.
