Explanatory power of the concepts developed here when applied to the several forms of memory described by Squire (1987). Terminological confusion in the current memory literature. “Declarative” memory (or LTM) as “uniquely accessible to consciousness” (Squire). Factors influencing the “take” time required for LTM formation. Dissociation of “procedural” from “declarative” learning, as shown in Milner’s Henry.
Thompson’s model of cerebellar learning. Single-neuron changes accompanying unilateral stimulation of motor neurons in fetal cord (mouse; in vitro). Temporal characteristics of postural asymmetries established in the cord, and partial blocking of these by NMD A antagonists. The basal ganglia as a regulatory feedback system vis-à-vis the cortex.
