By studying people with amnesia, it seems that short-term and long-term memories don't form in precisely the same way, nor do declarative and procedural memories.

  • Emotional responses such as fear occur in a brain region called the amygdala.
  • Memories of learned skills are associated with the region called the striatum.
  • The hippocampus is essential for forming, retaining, and recalling declarative memories.
  • The temporal lobes play a critical role in forming and recalling memories.

False memories are not useless. It seems that they're able to improve our mental processing.

Memories are our reality. Remembering isn't just looking up fact's from our mental files. It's more like telling stories. If we forget, we reconstruct the details, even if the details are false.

The somatic system is responsible for transmitting sensory information as well as voluntary movement. The system contains two major types of neurons:

  1. Motor neurons. They carry information from the brain and spinal cord to muscle fibers throughout the body. They allow us to take physical action.
  2. Sensory neurons. They allow us to take in sensory information and then carry the information from the nerves to the central nervous system.
