The formation, storage and retrieval of memories is critical for normal adaptive functioning, including the execution of goal-directed behavior, problem solving and decision-making. The prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus are part of integrated networks that also include the thalamus, amygdala and striatum, which regulate both executive functions and the storage and retrieval of long-term memories. The prefrontal cortex relies on the hippocampus to recall past behavioral and emotional responses to develop adaptive strategies support rapid learning and memory consolidation. Dysfunctions within this network contribute to a variety of cognitive, addictive, mood, and developmental disorders.
This Special Issue will present and discuss the neural processes by which the interaction between the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus leads to memory formation, and how the prefrontal cortex uses these memories to integrate information regarding salience, value, and contextual information associated with appetitive and aversive outcome during memory retrieval under normal and pathophysiological conditions.
