Psychotherapy and Neuroscience


Memory is manifested in neural networks throughout the brain that intersect in specific regions like the thalamus, striatum, hippocampus, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, cingulate cortex, etc. Early theories hypothesized that subcortical implicit memory was the predominant form of learning during first year. Today however researchers believe the brain develops contemporaneously. Both implicit and explicit processes develop at the same time soon after birth onward.
