There has been growing interest in the differential role of medial temporal lobe structures in learning and memory. The goal of the present study was to clarify how lesions of hippocampus, parahippocampal gyrus, and amygdala interfere with associative learning and memory. Thirty subjects with pharmacoresistant medial temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and temporal lobe removal were compared with 30 matched healthy control subjects. A set of neuropsychological test measures and an associative learning… CONTINUE READING
