2. Which of these acts importantly in object recognition?

  • Perirhinal cortex
  • Rhinal sulcus
  • Parahippocampal cortex
  • Entorhinal cortex

3. What makes hippocampal cells special for LTP?

  • Dopamine release is triggered by LTP
  • The synapses at the hippocampus are divided, containing more dendritic spines to enhance LTP
