Transcript

  • 1. Lesson 5 - The role of Neurons in Memory formationSaturday, 30 March 13
  • 2. Last lesson...... According to semantic network theory     A.information moves from sensory, to short-term, to long-term memory.     B.information in long-term memory is stored and organised according to meaningful groupings.   C.visual material is processed by the visuo-spatial sketchpad.     D.procedural memories are forgotten more readily than semantic memories.      Saturday, 30 March 13

  • 4. Todays lesson............ •Review the function of a neuron •Explain the role of the neuron in memory formation informed by the work of E. Richard Kandel Saturday, 30 March 13
  • 5. Revision - The NeuronSaturday, 30 March 13
  • 6. Kandel found that any experience resulting in memory produces physical changes in the brain at the neuronal level, changes in structure and function of neurons.Saturday, 30 March 13
  • 7. Kandel’s Research on the role of neurons Eric Kandel studies the sea slug Aplysia for the following reasons: •Very simple nervous system •Only 20,000 neurons •Largest neurons in the world and can be seen with the naked eyeSaturday, 30 March 13
  • 8. Kandel’s experiments Studied simple learning and remembering of the gill- withdrawal reflex of Aplysia Observed changes at the synapse (i.e. point of communication by adjacent neurons) in the structure and function of neurons in three ways: •Release extra neurotransmitter •Increase number of receptor sites •Growth of new synapses These changes are called collectively Long Term PotentiationSaturday, 30 March 13
  • 9. Saturday, 30 March 13
