Abstract

Contributions made by the hippocampus to long-term declarative memory are well established, but recent work compels reconsideration of the perspective that performance in other cognitive domains is independent of hippocampal function. In this chapter, we review literature that points to a role for the hippocampus in three additional domains-namely, perception, short-term or working memory, and unconscious expressions of memory. Counterevidence against claims for this broader reach are considered along with methodological challenges in each domain, and questions that remain to be addressed in future work are proposed. In the end, we argue that while there is much to be done, evidence strongly suggests that the reach of the hippocampus extends well beyond long-term declarative memory.
