About this Research Topic
The aim of the Research Topic is to provide a comprehensive, updated view on anatomical and functional brain connectivity in different memory domains. There will be a focus on explicit and implicit short- and long-term memory, based on the most advanced neuroimaging and neurophysiological technologies. We will try to collect contributions from leading scientists of the field, covering aspects of memory processing in healthy humans across the life-span and in patients with memory deficits (acquired brain lesions, Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease). Original contributions, theoretical, review, and methodological articles will be considered.
The anatomical basis of functional connectivity (with emphasis on prefrontal-parietal-temporal lobe circuitries) will be delineated with DTI plus resting state and cognitive activation paradigms. The cross-talk between brain structures, their functional hierarchy, and the chronometry of their activation during memory tasks will be addressed with fMRI, ERP, EEG and MEG oscillatory activity and TMS. Finally, we will highlight the role of emerging non-invasive neuromodulatory techniques (tDCS and rTMS) in modifying brain connectivity, thereby opening a window towards cognitive rehabilitation of memory complaints.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
