This chapter introduces some of the philosophical and historical underpinnings of research on the biological bases of memory. It begins by presenting four central themes that have guided memory research for over a hundred years: connection, cognition, compartmentalization, and consolidation. Substantial preliminary evidence regarding each of these themes emerged during a “Golden Era” for neuroscience in the latter half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. A brief introduction to some of these accomplishments provides the background for a subsequent, more detailed summary of progress on each of the four central themes in the remainder of the book.

Keywords:   memory research, connection, cognition, compartmentalization, consolidation
