Hippocampus Cara Strong, Corinne Strong, Haneen Saed, Mackenzie Scott
Location ❖ In medial temporal lobe of the brain ❖ Part of the limbic system ❖ Limbic system is location above the brainstem and below the cortex
Main Functions ❖ Mainly associated with memory, in particular long-term ❖ Plays a major role in declarative memory ❖ Plays a role in spatial orientation/navigation ❖ Emotional Responses
How the hippocampus can be damaged
Drug Use ❖ can interfere with memory functions. ❖ alters moods and interferes with the regulation of emotions ❖ Some effects may be longer and increase with regular abuse and can affect memory functions. ❖ TCH disrupts processing and making short term memories to long term memories.
Trauma ❖ Top three causes of TBI ➢ Car accidents ➢ Firearms ➢ Hard falls ❖ Symptoms of TBI ❖ Prognosis?
Stress ❖ When you’re under stress, your brain focuses on sensory stimuli and problem-solving, which alters your hippocampus function ❖ Effects of the overproduction of glucocorticoids (stress hormones)
Diseases ❖ Atrophy ➢ Natural ➢ Genetic ❖ Protein clumps ❖ Protein tangles ❖ Cure?
