Let’s talk about the memory pathway on a neurobiological level, describing the process of encoding, consolidation and retrieval.
1. Encoding Encoding is the initial process of perceiving and recognizing a stimulus or piece of information, converting it into a format that can be stored in the brain. – Areas involved: Prefrontal cortex, hippocampus, amygdala (for emotional memories) and specific sensory areas (e.g. visual cortex for visual information). Example: Let’s consider a memory of […]
