Germani M., Torriero S., Sparano A., Gaudino S.


PDF  


The aim of this study is to define the relationship between mind and body in the light of the most recent achievements in neurosciences. The article focuses on the neurobiological mechanisms involved in memory. Starting from the concept of neuronal plasticity and from their tight connection with the environment (internal and external), the procedures used to process the informations are examined. Several models of memory are also described (particularly the implicit and explicit forms of memory). In conclusion, the complex role that emotions play on memory is also analyzed.
