Where do we store memories? How do our short-term and long-term memories work? Which brain region is used for learning? Prof. Dr. Thomas Deller, Director of the Institute for Neuroanatomy at the Clinic of the J.W. Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main answers these and other questions in his lecture. The neuroscientist also points out which anatomical structures of the brain are important for memory processes. In this connection, he distinguished between various forms of learning and memory and presents the corresponding brain region and functional system involved. He then explains the cellular basis of learning and memory processes and illustrates this to his audience using simple examples.
