Memory and the parietal lobe

Science and Consciousness Review has a new feature article by staff writer Alice Kim discussing the role of the parietal lobe in memory.

The parietal lobe is typically linked to the representation of the body, and space in relation to the body, so it might be surprising that this area is being linked to more general memory abilities.

There is now a growing body of evidence for the importance of parietal areas in remembering and the article takes an in-depth look at what the scientific studies are telling us about how it all fits together.

Presumably, the author is not the same Alice Kim who is married to Nicolas Cage, but you can never be too sure.
