Functional Specialization in the Human Medial Temporal Lobe
Investigations of memory in rats and nonhuman primates have demonstrated functional specialization within the medial temporal lobe (MTL), a set of heavily interconnected structures including the
Perceptual deficits in amnesia: challenging the medial temporal lobe ‘mnemonic’ view

Recent lesion studies in macaque monkeys in which the behavioural effects of more highly circumscribed lesions to different subregions of the medial temporal lobe have been examined support the idea that regional functional specializations exist within the MTL.
The Contribution of the Human Medial Temporal Lobe to Perception: Bridging the Gap between Animal and Human Studies
The current article reviews the human neuropsychological literature to determine whether there is any evidence to suggest that the medial temporal lobe may be critical to higher order perceptual processes, with the hippocampus and perirhinal cortex being involved in scene and object perception, respectively.
Differentiating the Roles of the Hippocampus and Perirhinal Cortex in Processes beyond Long-Term Declarative Memory: A Double Dissociation in Dementia
A compelling double dissociation supports the idea that the hippocampus and perirhinal cortex may be critical for the processing of scenes and objects, respectively, in the domain of perception or very short-term working memory.
Fractionation of memory in medial temporal lobe amnesia
Hierarchical organization of cognitive memory.
The new findings suggest that the hippocampus may be especially important for event as opposed to fact memory, with the surrounding cortical areas contributing to both.
Visual perception and memory: a new view of medial temporal lobe function in primates and rodents.
In both primates and rodents, the hippocampus contributes to the memory and perception of places and paths, whereas the perirhinal cortex does so for objects and the contents of scenes, and the idea that MTL components contribute to declarative memory in similar ways has been contradicted.
