Cerebral localization of higher functions: memory-related anatomic structures Initial findings

Authors Eliasz Engelhardt


keywords: memory, anatomical structures, diencephalon, hippocampus, neocortex.

The nature of memory and the search for its localization have been a subject of interest since Antiquity. After millennia of theoretical concepts, shifting from the heart to the brain, then from the ventricles to solid parts, the core memory-related structures finally began to be identified through modern scientifically-based methods at the diencephalic and cortical (hippocampal and neocortical) levels, mostly in the late Modern period, culminating in the current state of knowledge on the subject.
