However, it is still debated to what extent inhibition is involved in causing different forms of forgetting in episodic memory. Moreover, although the prefrontal cortex has traditionally ...

Es ist jedoch umstritten, inwieweit Inhibition verschiedene Formen von Vergessen im episodischen Gedächtnis verursacht. Zudem sind die neuronalen Prozesse, die solchem ...
