Hippocampal Amnesia
TLDR
Findings across cases include the association of bilateral hippocampal damage with a deficit in anterograde episodic memory combined with spared procedural and working memory and the limited nature of retrograde amnesia following lesions to the fornix.
The Functional and Structural Neuroanatomy of Systems Consolidation for Autobiographical and Semantic Memory.
TLDR
This chapter investigated the role of structures in a memory network that supports remembering and focuses on two types of memory: episodic memory and semantic memory.
Hippocampal contributions to cortical plasticity
Consolidation theory and retrograde amnesia in humans
TLDR
An evaluation of 247 outcomes from 61 articles provides strong evidence of graded RA across different cerebral injuries, materials, and test procedures, as well as in measures of both absolute and relative performance.
The hippocampus, retrograde amnesia, and memory deconsolidation
TLDR
The HPC plays a role in the formation and storage of a wider range of memories than is posited in contemporary theories and it is demonstrated that an important factor in eliciting retrograde amnesia is the number of similar learning episodes.

Anterograde Amnesia and Temporally Graded Retrograde Amnesia for a Nonspatial Memory Task after Lesions of Hippocampus and Subiculum
TLDR
The results show the importance of the hippocampus and related structures for nonspatial memory and also demonstrate the temporary role of these structures in long-term memory.
Dynamics of Hippocampal-Cortical Interactions During Memory Consolidation: Insights from Functional Brain Imaging
TLDR
The findings show that memory processing and consolidation require a time-dependent hippocampal-cortical dialogue, ultimately enabling structured cortical networks to mediate recall and use of cortically stored remote memories independently.
Consolidation of memory
TLDR
Animal studies support the notion that information is stored in both hippocampal and extrahipocampal sites, and that retrieval from different sites involves access to different kinds of information, and help to explain why graded retrograde amnesia is sometimes seen after brain damage.

The medial temporal lobe memory system
TLDR
The medial temporal lobe memory system is needed to bind together the distributed storage sites in neocortex that represent a whole memory, but the role of this system is only temporary, as time passes after learning, memory stored in neoc cortex gradually becomes independent of medialporal lobe structures.
Different degrees of impairment in anterograde retrograde memory and recall/recognition performance in a transient global amnesic case
Abstract A 59-year-old patient with transient global amnesia was tested neuropsychologically during and after the attack. During the attack the patient manifested major problems with anterograde, but
Human amnesia and the medial temporal region: enduring memory impairment following a bilateral lesion limited to field CA1 of the hippocampus
TLDR
This is the first reported case of amnesia following a lesion limited to the hippocampus in which extensive neuropsychological and neuropathological analyses have been carried out.
Frontal lobes and the temporal organization of memory.
TLDR
It has now been established that the frontal cortex participates in judgements of the temporal order of recent events and of their frequency of occurrence, as well as in the planning and monitoring of the execution of self-determined sequences of responses.

TLDR
The role of the hippocampus is considered, which is needed temporarily to bind together distributed sites in neocortex that together represent a whole memory.
Memory, amnesia, and frontal lobe dysfunction
TLDR
Evidence concerning the influence of frontal lobe pathology on amnesic disorders is reviewed, different interpretations of this evidence are discussed, and research from human and animal neuropsychology as well as cognitive psychology is drawn on in an attempt to clarify the role of frontal damage in the amnesi syndrome.
Differentiating the roles of the hippocampal complex and the neocortex in long-term memory storage: evidence from the study of semantic dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that patients with semantic dementia, who have relative sparing of the hippocampal complex, show a pattern of preserved recent memories and impaired distant memories.
