OBJECTIVE To determine whether damage to prefrontal cortex is associated with face memory impairment. BACKGROUND Neurophysiologic and functional imaging studies suggest that prefrontal cortex is a key component of a distributed neural network that mediates face recognition memory. However, there have been few attempts to examine the impact of frontal lobe damage on face memory performance. METHODS Patients with focal frontal lobe lesions and normal control subjects were administered two… CONTINUE READING
