Hippocampus and Sequence Learning
Professor Howard Eichenbaum outlines the importance of the hippocampus to learning sequences of events.
So one of the components of our capacity to recollect our experience from the past, cognitive scientists tell us, is our ability to mentally replay an experience from the past �€“ to play it back as if it were a video tape. And of course within such a video tape, there is a strong temporal component �€“ a sequence of events that occurred in a particular way that characterizes certain experiences. Recent studies have shown that the hippocampus is critical for animals' ability to remember the order in which a sequence of experiences occurred, even though it�€™s not essential to remember or be familiar with the events themselves independently of their order. Similarly, neurons in the hippocampus form a relationship in the order of events that occur within a specific experience.

Professor Howard Eichenbaum explains that the hippocampus helps us represent items in the order in which they are experienced.
Professor Howard Eichenbaum outlines the importance of HM to memory research. Following his death in December 2008, HM's real name was revealed as Henry Gustav Molaison.
Professor Howard Eichenbaum explains that different brain structures within the medial temporal lobe support different memory processes, namely familiarity and recollection.
Professor Howard Eichenbaum discusses research indicating that the basic operations of the hippocampus are the same in humans and animals.
Professor Howard Eichenbaum outlines some of the major brain structures involved in declarative memory.
Professor Howard Eichenbaum describes the importance of single-cell recordings to memory research.
Professor Howard Eichenbaum explains that encoding and retrieving memories are distinct neurobiological processes.
Learning and memory are two intimately linked cognitive processes that stem from interactions with the environment (experience).
Professor Howard Eichenbaum outlines the differences between declarative, procedural, and emotional memory.
The hippocampus is closely aligned to memory formation. It is an important early storage place for long–term memory, and is involved in the transition to more enduring permanent memory.
