    topic to research. A study headed by Gregory Clemenson and Craig Stark in 2015 attempted to see how video games and hippocampal associated memory work together. The part of the brain that this study refers to mainly is through associations of the hippocampus and memory. Clemenson and Stark (2015) attempted to look at ways to alleviate hippocampal cognitive deficits through sensory stimulations. They based their study from research done by Van Praag which has showed that changing an animal’s…

    potentiation (LTP) and long-term depression (LTD) have been shown to be fundamental cellular mechanisms underlying learning and memory. Induction of LTP occurs concomitantly with learning in the hippocampus of freely-moving animals and is known to prevent occludes subsequent electrical induction of LTP in the hippocampus (Whitlock et al., 2006). Conversely, saturation of hippocampal LTP is also known to interfere with spatial memory formation (Barnes et al., 1994). A recent study has…

    remembering the information, you will not pass the written exam. The hippocampus is a structure that is part of the limbic system, involved in creating long-term memories. For example, remembering your best friend from a decade ago, and wishing he/she was here with you right now. This structure relates to the result of the written exam because you need this structure to remember the information for the test. The hippocampus will help you pass the test by recalling the information you need…

    the result is always cognitive impairment. We find it hard to focus and remember things. Sleep deprivation inhibits the brain’s capacity to form new brain cells as well as consolidate knowledge for memories to form. It is during sleep that the hippocampus (the area of the brain where memories are stored) becomes very active and moves information from short-term memory to long-term…

    Everyone’s memory is slightly different. (Human-memory.net, 2010) Memory can be effected by things such as illness, age, and accidents but does gender effect human memory? Memory is a function of many sections of the brain, this includes the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex. It can be separated into three different types; sensory, short-term, and long-term. Long-term memory is short-term memory that is hardened in a human’s brain through practice and repetition.…

    Studies show that a full night of sleep can enhance motor memory, and that declarative information can be recalled through a half of a night of slow wave sleep (Tucker & Fishbein, 2009). When memories are dependent on the hippocampus, they are benefited the most by deep, slow wave sleep. This stage of sleep allows retained information to be processed peacefully without interference. When emotional information is retained, it depends more on the amygdala during rapid eye movement…

    As it is explained above, any kind of modality can affect memory either in a good or bad way, and it has established that when the correct modality is obtained from an accurate source, it has been more positive going waveform than when items determined as new (Rugg and Wilding, 1996). Moreover, different modalities can create the problem to a person and make confusion which sources are experienced. Contrary to the information described above about sensory memory, Kayser, et al. (2007) claim that…
