This book discusses the processes, influences and performance of learning and memory. Chapter One reviews the growing evidences indicating the importance of iron overload onto learning and memory behavior of the brain. Chapter Two explains the issue of what adult age of acquisition (AoA) estimates really measure. Chapter Three describes the various forms of structural and functional neuronal plasticity that occur in the hippocampus and their role in hippocampal-dependent learning and memory.
