Dart NeuroScience – Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center Seminar Series

Hippocampus & retrograde amnesia: Episodes and knowledge

How the hippocampus is involved in supporting memories long after they are acquired is still a puzzle. Some of the experimental evidence can be interpreted to support the notion that there is a very long-lasting, dynamic process affecting remote memories. Such processes are central to the standard model of systems consolidation and multiple trace theory. Recent experiments with rats that evaluate remote memories after hippocampal damage or inactivation do not support the existence of a long-lasting, dynamic interaction between the hippocampus and other networks. Instead, the results support parallel memory storage and point to the idea that the hippocampus may enable experience-expectant neocortical reorganization.

Dr. Rob Sutherland received his PhD in Psychology from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He moved to the Department of Psychology at University of Lethbridge in 1980, completing postdoctoral training in Neuropsychology on a NSERC Fellowship. From 1981 – 1991 he was a faculty member in Psychology and then from 1991 – 2001 he accepted a position at the University of New Mexico where he was Professor of Psychology, Physiology, & Neuroscience and Head of the Behavioural Neuroscience Area. He returned to Lethbridge where he is Professor of Neuroscience, Board of Governors Research Chair, and Director of the Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience. His current research investigates the neurobiology of learning, memory, and amnesia in rodents and humans.
