Abstract

This review covers recent research on the neural process through which a novel stimulus becomes familiar. Lesion and recording studies have provided data sufficient to outline a tentative stimulus-recognition circuit and to suggest how the circuit might operate to form the new and relatively lasting stimulus traces that must underlie delayed stimulus recognition. The research has reached a stage where further progress could well be hastened by interaction between experiment and the formal, neurobiologically constrained models that are beginning to appear.
