The neural pathology of episodicmemory deficits in schizophrenia is not fully understood, but regions within the medial temporal lobe (MTL)may beparticularly important. The perirhinal cortex (PRC) is critical for assessing item familiarity, the parahippocampal cortex (PHC) for processing context information (i.e., time and space), and the hippocampus (HC)(More)
