Abstract
Neuropsychology and neuroimaging of human memory: history and recent changes

Human memory theories have been partly based on the study of patients affected by various
neuropsychological disorders: amnesic syndromes, dementia-related syndromes ...Korsakoff's syndrome and Alzheimer's disease are its emblematic figures. Some patients as the HM or KC case became as famous as Brenda Milner and Endel Tulving , the scientists who followed them during their whole life. Brain imaging represents another main contribution to the development of memory theoretical models. It has been used as well for healthy subjects as for patients affected by a memory sickness. Psychology based disciplines and neurosciences have privileged studying an " individual " memory. Recent studies try to conciliate this approach with that of historians or sociologists describing the mechanisms behind the construction of collective memories.
