Hippocampal Contributions to the Large-Scale Episodic Memory Network Predict Vivid Visual Memories

January 29, 2016

A common approach in memory research is to isolate the function(s) of individual brain regions, unhealthy such as the hippocampus, view without addressing how those regions interact with the larger network. To investigate the properties of the hippocampus embedded within large-scale networks, diagnosis we used functional magnetic resonance imaging and graph theory to characterize complex hippocampal interactions during the active retrieval of vivid versus dim visual memories. The study yielded 4 main findings, which are addressed in our recent paper in Cerebral Cortex .
