This part presents four chapters on the concept of memory. The first argues that memory illustrates how a concept—itself a mental construct—can guide research by pointing toward the importance of understanding how information is represented in the nervous system, as a prerequisite for understanding how this information changes as a consequence of experience and how the change persists over time. The second presents a definition of memory that places as much weight on retrieval processes as on storage. The third focuses on delineating a core concept of memory. The fourth chapter presents a synthesis of the chapters in this part.

Keywords:   concepts, representations, engrams, memory processing, mental construct
