Description:

Episodic memory proves essential for daily function, allowing us to remember where weparked the car, what time we walked the dog, or what a friend said earlier. In How WeRemember, Michael Hasselmo draws on recent developments in neuroscience to present a newmodel describing the brain mechanisms for encoding and remembering such events as spatiotemporaltrajectories. He reviews physiological breakthroughs on the regions implicated in episodic memory,including the discovery of grid cells, the cellular mechanisms of persistent spiking and resonantfrequency, and the topographic coding of space and time. These discoveries inspire a theory forunderstanding the encoding and retrieval of episodic memory not just as discrete snapshots but as adynamic replay of spatiotemporal trajectories, allowing us to "retrace our steps" torecover a memory. In the main text of the book, he presents the model in narrative form, accessibleto scholars and advanced undergraduates in many fields. In the appendix, he presents the material ina more quantitative style, providing mathematical descriptions appropriate for advancedundergraduates and graduate students in neuroscience or engineering.
