The standard error of measurement is also represented. (From Quintero-Gallego et al., 2006). It is also important to note that there are neurobiological changes that occur with the development of memories in healthy human individuals. For instance, it is now accepted that neurogenesis occurs in the adult human hippocampus and it has been surmised that adding new neurons helps in acquiring new knowledge without disrupting knowledge that has already been stored (Appleby et al., 2011), whereas neurogenesis occurs in the human
