An fMRI Study of the Role of the Medial Temporal Lobe in Implicit and Explicit Sequence Learning

  title={An fMRI Study of the Role of the Medial Temporal Lobe in Implicit and Explicit Sequence Learning},
  author={Haline E. Schendan and Meghan Searl and Rebecca J. Melrose and Chantal E. Stern},
fMRI was used to investigate the neural substrates supporting implicit and explicit sequence learning, focusing especially upon the role of the medial temporal lobe. Participants performed a serial reaction time task (SRTT). For implicit learning, they were naive about a repeating pattern, whereas for explicit learning, participants memorized another repeating sequence. fMRI analyses comparing repeating versus random sequence blocks demonstrated activation of frontal, parietal, cingulate, and… CONTINUE READING
