weehee! Hippocampus CA3 “Arbitrary associations It has been suggested that the hippocampus and its subregions support the formation of arbitrary associations, including paired-associate learning (Eichenbaum and Cohen 2001). McNaughton and Morris (1987), Hasselmo and Wyble (1997), and Rolls (1996) have suggested that the hippocampus and specifically the CA3 autoassociative network is responsible for the formation and storage of arbitrary associations. For example, information from the parietal cortex regarding the location of an object may be associated with information from the temporal cortex regarding the identity of an object. These two kinds of information may be projected to the CA3 region of the hippocampus via the medial and lateral perforant path to enable the organism to remember a particular object and its location.”
