MY WORDS CA1: Keeps Episode Intact, Across the Objects Within. (VERBATIM, RECOLLECTION). Each Episode is Distinct from One Another. Forgets Objects. CA3/DG: Keeps Objects Intact, Across the Episodes. (GIST, FAMILIARITY). Each Object is Distinct From One Another. Forgets Episodes.

CA1: Keeps Episode Intact, Across the Objects Within. (VERBATIM, RECOLLECTION). Each Episode is Distinct from One Another. Forgets Objects.
 
CA3/DG: Keeps Objects Intact, Across the Episodes. (GIST, FAMILIARITY). Each Object is Distinct From One Another. Forgets Episodes.
 
ONE OF THE BETTER DESCRIPTIONS
Multi-voxel pattern similarity analyses revealed that CA1 represented objects that shared an episodic context as more similar than those from different episodic contexts. CA23DG showed the opposite pattern, differentiating between objects encountered in the same episodic context. The complementary characteristics of these subfields explain how we can parse our experiences into cohesive episodes while retaining the specific details that support vivid recollection.
