What is the role of the hippocampus in memory?



  1. 0 Votes

    The hippocampus is critical to the formation of memories and the retention of them. Damage to the hippocampus can cause both retrograde amnesia (loss of previous memories) and anterograde amnesia (ability to form new memories).

    Memory loss is one of the earliest symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, and the hippocampus is one of the first areas of the brain to deteriorate.
