entorhinal cortex is the MAIN INPUT to the hippocampus.
entorhinal cortex is the MAIN OUTPUT from the hippocampus.
These go into the head/anterior/rostral/dorsal hippocampus where the ‘gist’/category/concept/prototype processing happens.
NESTED HIERARCHIES OF WORD CATEGORIES. “GISTS” are categorizations. Yes, this is good good!
“we found that both the mid-anterior hippocampus and the entorhinal cortex represented the inferred hierarchical structure between words: subordinate-level words were represented more similarly to their related superordinate than to unrelated ones. This was paired, in the entorhinal cortex, by an additional signature of internalized structural representation of nested hierarchy: words referring to subordinate concepts belonging to the same superordinate category were represented more similarly compared with those not belonging to the same superordinate level:”
The time scale is just right! seconds and minutes!
“From a behavioral perspective, the CA3a,b subregion of the hippocampus plays an important role in the encoding of new spatial information within short-term memory with a duration of seconds and minutes”
