Non-declarative learning in patients and monkeys

Non-declarative learning in patients and monkeys

About This Video

Memory researchers were stumped for many years by the apparent lack of learning deficits in animal models of human patients with medial-temporal lobe lesions. Only after recognizing the difference between declarative and non-declarative memory and the different ways in which tasks can be learned did the research data start to make sense. Developing a declarative memory task for non-human primates was one of the key steps in understanding the role of the medial temporal lobes in long-term memory formation.
