the importance of the hippocampus and memories
where memories are stored/shipped to other regions for permanent keeping
new memories are also stored here
hypothesis for sleep and memory
activation of the hippocampus during slow wave sleep (SWS) causes memory consolidation/learning
to get evidence for hippocampal activation during SWS
hippocampus reactivates during SWS for learning which leads to the increase in learning/memory
