Issues for discussion (or caution)
• Homologies in tasks:
– Do humans, rats, and monkeys do task the same way?
– Materials: words = odors/locations = objects?
– Does extensive training change way memory tasks are performed?
• Homologies in brain structures: Prefrontal cortex
• Influence of “non-memory” processes
• Connection with pharmacology research (which often
focuses on plasticity/consolidation)?
