Memory and the temporal lobe
TLDR
Following similar surgical lesions in 200 monkeys, defects of learning appeared appreciably less than one would have anticipated as occurring in man, but there were necessarily differences in the types of tests used.

TLDR
The evidence from man suggests that in the amnesic syndrome the integrity is preserved of those forms of long-term memory that do not depend on the operation of a 'mediational' memory system.

TLDR
An attempt is made to address the question about the impact on the person HM of not having been able to form consciously retrievable memories from age 27 until his death at age of 82, thus having to rely for a reconstruction of his life on memories from child- and young adulthood as well as single momentary short-lived experiences.
Organic Amnesia
TLDR
A now-famous patient with organic amnesia, case H. M. M., who in 1953 underwent surgery for relief of severe epileptic seizures, exhibited a profound anterograde amnesia following surgery, but there was no detectable impairment in intellectual or language abilities.
Evidence for semantic learning in profound amnesia: An investigation with patient H.M.
TLDR
Although H.M.M.'s semantic learning was clearly impaired, the results provide robust, unambiguous evidence that some new semantic learning can be supported by structures beyond the hippocampus proper.

TLDR
The observed dissociations have led a number of investigators to propose that repetition-priming effects are mediated by a "memory system," "memory process," or "form of memory" that is relatively spared in amnesia and that can function independently of the damaged memory process or system that underlies conscious and explicit recolle~tion.

ACQUISITION OF MOTOR SKILL AFTER BILATERAL MEDIAL TEMPORAL-LOBE EXCISION
MEMORY AND THE HIPPOCAMPAL COMPLEX.
TLDR
Encouraged by the apparent consistency and specificity of the association between memory defects and rhinencephalic lesions in man, a number of investigators have attempted to produce similar disturbances of memory in primates and lower mammals.
Memory deficit produced by bilateral lesions in the hippocampal zone.
TLDR
The following study shows that the capacity to record the daily current of conscious experience may be lost when there is bilateral destruction of a man's hippocampus and hippocampal gyrus.
LOSS OF RECENT MEMORY AFTER BILATERAL HIPPOCAMPAL LESIONS
TLDR
The results of these studies point to the importance of the hippocampal complex for normal memory function in patients who had undergone similar, but less radical, bilateral medial temporallobe resections, and as a warning to others of the risk to memory involved in bilateral surgical lesions of the hippocampusal region.
Persistent anterograde amnesia after stab wound of the basal brain
Ability to discover hidden figures after cerebral lesions.
TLDR
These field factors that determine what part of a sensory field will be selected as "figure" and what parts will tend to become "ground" are surprisingly independent of structural differences in the perceiver's nervous system.
The limbic lobe in man.
TLDR
The rhinencephalon was isolated by the "undercutt ing" technique in a series of fractional lobotomies performed on schizophrenic and neurotic patients, and there were no other changes in personality except for some lightening of mood and a distinct increase in libido in certain eases of orbital undercutting.
Memory and the hippocampal complex. II. Is memory a multiple process
TLDR
Though the two postulated phases of memory have been rechristened, today there is less agreement than ever as to whether a "dualistic" or a "monistic" theory of memory is correct.
