Mortimer Mishkin (NIH) talked at Radford about the evidence his lab has
developed for two memory systems, the cortical-limbic system, which is
modulated by acetylcholine, involves the hippocampus, has feedback to
the sensory areas, and functions cognitively, and the cortical-striatal
system, which is modulated instead by dopamine, involves the hippocampus,
appears to be one-way, and functions behaviorally (never forgetting).
