Project description

The two memory systems in the brain include declarative memory, which supports facts and events, and procedural memory, which supports motor skills. Recent studies suggest that these memory systems are more interconnected and that the hippocampus is involved in both. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the MemUnited project aims to uncover the integrative framework of shared neural processes across multiple memory systems. The project will use multivariate pattern analyses of functional magnetic resonance imaging data for the different phases of memory formation. The aim is to investigate whether the mechanisms of sequential order processing are used in declarative episodic and procedural motor memory. Moreover, the study will characterise the involvement of the hippocampus in multiple memory systems.
