The recall of spatial location in patients with left or right temporal-lobe lesions was studied in two experiments, in which recall was tested either immediately after presentation of an array of objects, or after an intervening verbal task, a spatial task or an unfilled interval. Deficits were found only in patients with right temporal-lobe lesions that(More)
Cognitive deficits persist in patients who survive traumatic brain injury (TBI). Lateral fluid percussion brain injury in the mouse, a model of human TBI, results in hippocampal-dependent cognitive impairment, similar to retrograde amnesia often associated with TBI. To identify potential substrates of the cognitive impairment, we evaluated regional neuronal(More)
Developmental trajectories of two classes of human memory, implicit and explicit memory, appear to diverge. We examined how developmental differences in perceptual and conceptual priming, two types of implicit memory, coincide with differences between familiarity and recollective responses on explicit memory tests that employ the Remember/Know paradigm ((More)
Evidence for a major involvement of the frontal cortex in various aspects of the temporal organization of memory has emerged from the study of patients who had sustained a unilateral frontal- or temporal-lobe excision for the control of cerebral seizures. It has now been established that the frontal cortex participates in judgements of the temporal order of(More)
Patients with unilateral frontal- or temporal-lobe lesions and normal control subjects studied multiple arrays of pictures and were tested for recall of the locations of the pictures. One condition consisted of three trials of the same pictures in different spatial arrangements, recall being tested immediately after each presentation. In a second condition(More)
Patients with unilateral frontal- or temporal-lobe excisions and normal control subjects were tested on the recall of objects and of their location in an array. An incidental-learning situation was used, in which the task was presented as a test of the ability to estimate the prices of the objects. Patients with right frontal-lobe lesions were the only(More)
Neuropsychology plays a vital role in the treatment of epilepsy, providing information on the effects of seizures on higher cortical functions through the measurement of behavioral abilities and disabilities. This is accomplished through the design, administration and interpretation of neuropsychological tests, including those used in functional(More)
PURPOSE The white matter (WM) is considered critical for linking cortical processing networks necessary for cognition. The aim of this study was to assess diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) measures of regional WM in children with nonlesional localization-related epilepsy in comparison to controls, and to determine the relation between lobar WM and(More)
