The ability to form long-term memories for novel events depends on information processing within the hippocampus (HC) and entorhinal cortex (EC). The HC–EC circuitry shows a quantitative segregation of anatomical directionality into different neuronal layers. Whereas superficial EC layers mainly project to dentate gyrus (DG), CA3 and apical CA1 layers, HC output is primarily sent from pyramidal CA1 layers and subiculum to deep EC layers. Here we utilize this directionality information by… 
The Role of the Human Entorhinal Cortex in a Representational Account of Memory
TLDR
There is now evidence for a dissociation of object-related vs. spatial processing in human EC subfields, and variance in localization may be integrated in the antero-lateral vs. posterior-medial distinction, but may additionally reflect process differences.
Regional Specific Evidence for Memory-Load Dependent Activity in the Dorsal Subiculum and the Lateral Entorhinal Cortex
TLDR
It is reported for the first time that the proximal part of the subiculum is recruited in a memory-load dependent manner and the deep layers of the LEC engaged under high memory load conditions during the retrieval of non-spatial memory, thus shedding light on the specific networks contributing to non-Spatial memory retrieval.
The hippocampal subregion CA1 and CA3 in novelty detection in a visually rich virtual reality system
TLDR
To examine the functional role of the hippocampal subregions in the novelty detection, single units of CA1 and CA3 are recorded simultaneously in a head-restrained rat navigating in a virtual reality (VR) environment system to serve as direct evidence to the hypothesis that the CA3 might provide the memory of a prior environment by maintaining its field representation while subsets ofCA1 might generate the novelty signals by forming a new field representation.
Recognition memory: Cellular evidence of a massive contribution of the LEC to familiarity and a lack of involvement of the hippocampal subfields CA1 and CA3
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that the LEC, specifically its deep layers, contributes to familiarity and constitute the first cellular evidence that the hippocampus does not, thus establishing that familiarity does not share the same neural substrate as recollection.
Strong Evidence for Pattern Separation in Human Dentate Gyrus
TLDR
This study uses ultra-high-resolution fMRI at 7 T and multivariate pattern analysis to provide compelling evidence that the DG subregion specifically sustains representations of similar scenes that are less overlapping than in other hippocampal and medial temporal lobe regions.
Functional subregions of the human entorhinal cortex
TLDR
High-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging is used to identify functional subdivisions of the human entorhinal cortex whose functional connectivity closely parallels the known anatomical connectivity patterns of the rodent and nonhuman primate EC.
Differentiable Processing of Objects, Associations, and Scenes within the Hippocampus
TLDR
A novel mental imagery paradigm and high-resolution functional MRI are used to compare accounts of hippocampal function that emphasize associative processes with a theory that proposes scene construction as a primary role and conclude that a greater emphasis on characterizing how specific portions of the hippocampus interact with other brain regions may promote a better understanding of its role in cognition.

The medial temporal lobe.
TLDR
This analysis draws on studies of human memory impairment and animal models of memory impairment, as well as neurophysiological and neuroimaging data, to show that this system is principally concerned with memory and operates with neocortex to establish and maintain long-term memory.
The medial temporal lobe and recognition memory.
TLDR
Evidence from neuropsychological, neuroimaging, and neurophysiological studies of humans, monkeys, and rats indicates that different subregions of the MTL make distinct contributions to recollection and familiarity; the data suggest that the hippocampus is critical for recollection but not familiarity.
Impaired familiarity with preserved recollection after anterior temporal-lobe resection that spares the hippocampus
TLDR
Recognition memory in NB, an individual who underwent surgical resection of left anterior temporal-lobe structures for treatment of intractable epilepsy, is examined and the results of four experiments indicate that NB exhibits impaired familiarity with preserved recollection.
Direct Evidence for Domain-Sensitive Functional Subregions in Human Entorhinal Cortex
TLDR
High-resolution fMRI data provide direct evidence for a functional specialization within human entorhinal cortex and thereby strongly support MTL models that emphasize the importance of partially segregated parallel processing streams.
Double Dissociation between Hippocampal and Parahippocampal Responses to Object–Background Context and Scene Novelty
TLDR
These findings provide compelling support for the hypothesis that rapid item–context binding is a function of the hippocampus, rather than the parahippocampal cortex, with the former acting to detect relational novelty of this nature through its function as a match–mismatch detector.
Hippocampus-dependent and -independent theta-networks of active maintenance
TLDR
It is confirmed in healthy adults that active maintenance of the CR arrangement of objects within a scene is impaired by task-interference during the delay in a manner akin to working-memory maintenance processes and demands reconsideration of the classical functional-anatomical distinctions between long- and short-term memory.
Pattern Separation in the Human Hippocampal CA3 and Dentate Gyrus
TLDR
High-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging is used to measure brain activity during incidental memory encoding and provides compelling evidence of a key role of the human CA3/dentate gyrus in pattern separation.
Convergence of entorhinal and CA3 inputs onto pyramidal neurons and interneurons in hippocampal area CA1—An anatomical study in the rat
The entorhinal cortex (EC) conveys information to hippocampal field CA1 either directly by way of projections from principal neurons in layer III, or indirectly by axons from layer II via the dentate
