Abstract:
How we learn and remember are questions that have been central to three intellectual disciplines: philosophy, psychology and biology. Until the nineteenth century, the study of learning and memory was restricted largely to the domain of philosophy. Later, this theoretical approach was gradually replaced by more experimental studies, initially in psychology and then in biology. The questions posed by these two disciplines concerning learning and memory storage began to converge, and today psychologists and biologists have joined forces to open up the “black box” to study how the brain and behavior allows us to learn and have memories.
