A functional hypothesis for adult hippocampal neurogenesis: avoidance of catastrophic interference in the dentate gyrus.
HIPPOCAMPUS, no. 3 (2006): 329-343
The dentate gyrus is part of the hippocampal memory system and special in that it generates new neurons throughout life. Here we discuss the question of what the functional role of these new neurons might be. Our hypothesis is that they help the dentate gyrus to avoid the problem of catastrophic interference when adapting to new 14 enviro...更多
