Regional cerebral blood flow was examined during multiple-trial learning in healthy volunteers. On the basis that incremental learning from trial to trial is severely impaired in neuropsychological studies of patients with medial temporal lesions, we predicted that medial temporal activation might be particularly associated with incremental gains in learning. On the other hand, we predicted that frontal activations would not show any increase during incremental learning, and might even diminish… CONTINUE READING
