The hippocampus is essential for human memory. The protracted maturation of memory capacities from infancy through early childhood is thus often attributed to hippocampal immaturity. The hippocampus of human infants has been characterized in terms of anatomy, but its function has never been tested directly because of technical challenges. Here we use recently developed methods for task-based fMRI in awake human infants to test whether the infant hippocampus supports statistical learning. Hippocampal activity increased with...
