(p.165) Part 8 Consolidation
Science of Memory: Concepts

This part presents four chapters on the concept of consolidation. The first chapter presents a personal view of memory consolidation that illustrates the growing ambivalence towards this enormously influential idea. The second focuses on molecular consolidation and its implications for what memory is at the biological level. The third argues that the notion of a fixed memory trace, and its strengthening during consolidation, stands as a barrier to further progress in understanding the nature and underlying bases of memory. The fourth chapter presents a synthesis of the chapters in this part.

Keywords:   memory consolidation, molecular consolidation, fixed memory trace, biological level
