MEMORY AND THE EXPERIENCE OF TIME: CONSIDERATIONS OF A NEUROPHYSIOLOGIST
AbstractLearning and memory are fundamental higher brain functions that allow individuals to adapt to the environment, to build up their own history as unique creatures, to widen the personal cultural background and, ultimately, the population culture. The molecular and cellular mechanisms that contribute to short- and long-term memory are extremely conserved across evolution from mollusks to man and among various forms of memory and consist in short-to-long lived rearrangements in synaptic efficiency and in the structure of neuronal networks.
