Results from recent studies of retrograde amnesia following damage to the hippocampal complex of human and non-human subjects have shown that retrograde amnesia is extensive and can encompass much of a subject's lifetime; the degree of loss may depend upon the type of memory assessed. These and other findings suggest that the hippocampal formation and related structures are involved in certain forms of memory (e.g. autobiographical episodic and spatial memory) for as long as they exist and… Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
Hippocampal contributions to cortical plasticity
TLDR
It is proposed that the hippocampal complex is always necessary for retrieval of episodes and their contextual frame, and that hippocampal-neocortical interactions contribute instead to the extraction of semantic information to be stored in the neocortex. Expand

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. Expand
The hippocampus, retrograde amnesia, and memory deconsolidation
There are numerous clinical and experimental accounts of retrograde and anterograde amnesia resulting from damage to the hippocampus (HPC). Several theories on the HPC hold that only certain types ofExpand

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. Expand
Amnesia and the Brain
TLDR
The clinical features of anterograde and retrograde amnesia are an important source of information about the cognitive and neural architecture of memory systems. Expand
Dynamics of Hippocampal-Cortical Interactions During Memory Consolidation: Insights from Functional Brain Imaging
Both clinical studies and experiments in animals have provided evidence for the existence of a temporally graded retrograde amnesia following lesions of the medial temporal lobe, including theExpand
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. Expand

Retrograde amnesia and memory consolidation: a neurobiological perspective
TLDR
A simple neural network model is inspired that produces behavior consistent with experimental data and makes ideas about memory consolidation more concrete about how memory consolidation might actually occur. Expand
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. Expand
Which brain regions are critically involved in the retrieval of old episodic memory?
TLDR
While current opinion assumes a strong anatomical interdigitation in the processing of either kind of memory, recent single case reports and results obtained with the positron emission tomographic subtraction method indicate the likely existence of a dissociation. Expand
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, butExpand

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. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand
Memory, amnesia, and frontal lobe dysfunction
Lesions restricted to the frontal lobes do not ordinarily produce an amnesic syndrome in man. However, recent research has demonstrated that amnesic patients who are characterized by signs of frontalExpand

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. Expand
Loss of remote memory: a cognitive neuropsychological perspective
TLDR
Profound loss of autobiographical memory, with relative sparing of knowledge of word meaning, facts about other people and personal semantic information, may arise from either disruption of thematic retrieval frameworks or a loss of individual memory traces. Expand
