In this positron emission tomography investigation of human nonverbal visual memory, we determined the anatomical distribution of changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) reflecting familiarity of visual shapes. All stimuli consisted of relatively simple, abstract outlines generated by Fourier expansions. Subjects performed the same task twice, once using unfamiliar and once using familiar stimuli. The task was a modified version of delayed nonmatching-to-sample, consisting of one sample… CONTINUE READING
