Getting closer and closer: Episodic and semantic memory are linked.
anterior HPC – Gist is conceptual.
posterior HPC – Verbatin is fine-grained and spatial.
a) “anterior hippocampus preferentially encodes higher-order information, constructing memory gist,
whereas posterior hippocampus preferentially encodes lower-order spatial and sensorimotor information, registering memory details
b) “One view of this dissociation is that the anterior and posterior hippocampus support gist-based/conceptual and fine-grained/spatial memory representations, respectively.
I’ve been saying for years: I have a categorization problem. This may mean a ‘gist’ problem.
That may mean I have an anterior HPC problem. Will check.
the most likely explanation for the association of more prominent enlargement with fewer ADHD symptoms, particularly in the presence of overall enlargement (ie, progressively fewer symptoms that accompany an increasingly more prominent morphological abnormality relative to controls), would seem to be that the hippocampal enlargement represents a compensatory plastic hypertrophic response to the presence of ADHD symptoms.
