Abstract

The human brain is a superbly marvelous and extremely complicated neurophysiological structure for generating natural intelligence that transforms cognitive information into colorful behaviors. The brain is the most complex and interesting objects in nature that requires rigorous scientific investigations by multidisciplinary methodologies and via transdisciplinary approaches where only low-level studies could not explain it. A fundamental problem and difficulty in contemporary brain science is the indistinguishable confusion of the cognitive mechanisms and neurophysiological structures of the kernel brain and its memories. This paper presents a set of formal neuroinformatics models of memory and a rigorous mapping between the cognitive functions of memory and their neurophysiological structures. The neurophysiological foundations of memory are rigorously described based on comprehensive cognitive models of memory. The cognitive architecture of human memory and its relationship to the intelligence power of the brain are logically analyzed. The cognitive roles of memory allocated in both cerebrum and cerebellum are revealed by mapping the functional models of memory onto corresponding neurophysiological structures of the brain. As a result, fundamental properties of memory and knowledge as well as their neurophysiological forms in the brain are systematically explained.
