New memories are not encoded on a tabula rasa. When new information is relevant to prior knowledge or schema, it can be learned and remembered better. How do we remember things with prior knowledge?
There are some exciting findings of the schema effect in rodent studies. What about humans? To bridge this gap, I use the human analogue paradigm of rodent studies and the techniques of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate the effect of schema/prior knowledge on memory formation.
