The hippocampus is closely aligned to memory formation. It is an important early storage place for longâ€“term memory, and is involved in the transition to more enduring permanent memory.
The hippocampus is the structure in the brain most closely aligned to memory formation. It is important as an early storage place for longâ€“term memory, and it is involved in the transition of longâ€“term memory to even more enduring permanent memory. The hippocampus also plays an important role in spatial navigation.

The subiculum is the main output region of the hippocampus and is important to learning and memory. It plays a role in spatial navigation, symbol processing, and the stress response.
Doctor Abraham Zangen discusses the key structures underlying the brain reward system, a complex neural network that includes the nucleus accumbens and hippocampus.
Professor Eric Kandel discusses the importance of the hippocampus in the formation of long-term memories.
Professor Eric Kandel explains that the CA1 region of the hippocampus is important for representing and remembering spaces.
Professor Karim Nader explains that different brain regions are responsible for different types of memory. The hippocampus mediates conscious memory.
Professor Karim Nader explains that long-term memories are traditionally thought of as being fixed in the brain.
Learning and memory are two intimately linked cognitive processes that stem from interactions with the environment (experience).
In the sleeping brain, the hippocampus strengthens memory by going over the day’s events.
Professor Ron Davis explains that the gene CREB is important to memory. Blocking CREB expression, blocks short-term memory formation.
Professor Trevor Robbins describes some of the key functions of the excitatory glutamate system, which is integral to information processing and long-term potentiation.
