Developmental learning versus learning in the mature organism. Memory as in general a function of magnocellular output arrays; in neocortex, as forming a bilayered system, chiefly involving layers lower III and V. Evidence in support of this conclusion, and of Blakemore’s principle that single neurons respond preferentially to inputs they have “seen” most often. Generic memory as a function chiefly of newer cortex, and one that permits the organism to construct an inner world matching its experience. Evidence that motor learning may differentially involve pyramids of layer V, and be promoted by induction of LTP in neurons of overlying layer III.
