Consolidation of long-term memory: Evidence and alternatives

Article OPEN
Meeter, M.; Murre, J.M.J.;

Memory loss in retrograde amnesia has long been held to be larger for recent periods than for remote periods, a pattern usually referred to as the Ribot gradient. One explanation for this gradient is consolidation of long-term memories. Several computational models of s... View more
