Abstract: While studies in rodents suggest that dopamine is necessary for enabling the molecular consolidation of hippocampal plasticity, very little is known about the role of dopamine for hippocampus-dependent memory in humans. On the basis of functional imaging studies and pharmacological experiments, I will discuss which role dopamine may play for human episodic memory in young and older adults. Furthermore, I will discuss motivational aspects of episodic memory from the vantage point of novelty processing in dopaminergic circuitry.
