Hippocampal region CA2 has received increased attention due to its importance in social recognition memory. While its specific function remains to be identified, there are indications that CA2 plays a major role in a variety of situations, widely extending beyond social memory. In this targeted review we highlight lines of research which have begun to converge on a more fundamental role for CA2. We discuss recent proposals that speak to the computations CA2 may perform within the hippocampal circuit.
