The hallmark of medial temporal lobe amnesia is a loss of episodic memory such that patients fail to remember new events that are set in an autobiographical context (an episode). A further symptom is a loss of recognition memory. The relationship between these two features has recently become contentious. Here, we focus on the central issue in this dispute — the relative contributions of the hippocampus and the perirhinal cortex to recognition memory. A resolution is vital not only for… Expand
An animal model of recognition memory and medial temporal lobe amnesia: History and current issues
TLDR
This article traces the successful development of an animal model of human medial temporal lobe amnesia, which eventually identified the structures in the medial temporal lobes important for memory. Expand
The hippocampus: A central node in a large-scale brain network for memory.
TLDR
The role of the hippocampus and neocortex and its surrounding medial temporal lobe structures in memory consolidation is described: a process in which novel memories become integrated into long-term memory. Expand
The role of the hippocampus in organic amnesia June 10 , 2014
  • 2014
Organic amnesia is a neurological disorder characterised by severe impairment in episodic memory. In the past, hippocampal damage has been assumed to be both necessary and sufficient to cause organicExpand
Remembering
A major development in understanding the structure and organization of memory was the identification of the medial temporal lobe memory system as one of the brain systems that support memory. Work onExpand
Recognition memory and the medial temporal lobe: a new perspective
TLDR
The methods traditionally used to separate recollection from familiarity instead separate strong memories from weak memories, and it is suggested that these structures work together in a cooperative and complementary way. Expand
Differentiating the Roles of the Hippocampus and Perirhinal Cortex in Processes beyond Long-Term Declarative Memory: A Double Dissociation in Dementia
TLDR
A compelling double dissociation supports the idea that the hippocampus and perirhinal cortex may be critical for the processing of scenes and objects, respectively, in the domain of perception or very short-term working memory. Expand
The medial temporal lobe and declarative memory
Abstract The hippocampus is part of a system of anatomically related structures in the medial temporal lobe that supports the capacity for conscious recollection (declarative memory). In threeExpand
Recognition Memory and the Human Hippocampus
TLDR
Seven patients with bilateral damage thought to be limited primarily to the hippocampal region were impaired on three standard tests of recognition memory and were impaired to a similar extent at Remembering and Knowing, measures of the two processes thought to support recognition performance.

The medial temporal lobe and memory
Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the role of medial temporal lobe (MTL) structures—the hippocampus and surrounding parahippocampal, perirhinal, and entorhinal cortices—in memory processingExpand
Plasticity Mechanisms of Memory Consolidation and Reconsolidation in the Perirhinal Cortex
TLDR
It is proposed that Prh could play a role as a "pattern separator" for object memories, similar to the function of the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus in the spatial domain. Expand

Functionally Dissociating Aspects of Event Memory: the Effects of Combined Perirhinal and Postrhinal Cortex Lesions on Object and Place Memory in the Rat
TLDR
It is found that NMDA-induced lesions of the putative rat homologs of these cortical areas (perirhinal plus postrhinal cortices) did not impair performance on two allocentric spatial tasks highly sensitive to hippocampal dysfunction and that object familiarity–novelty detection depends on different neural substrates than do other aspects of event memory. Expand
Real-time tracking of memory formation in the human rhinal cortex and hippocampus.
TLDR
It is suggested that declarative memory formation is dissociable into subprocesses and sequentially organized within the MTL, as well as within the rhinal cortex and the hippocampus. Expand
The Neurophysiology of Memory
TLDR
Cross‐species comparisons show that the patterns of mnemonic activity observed throughout the medial temporal lobe are largely conserved across species and show that neurons in each of the medialporal lobe areas can perform both similar as well as distinctive mnemon functions. Expand
Perceptual–mnemonic functions of the perirhinal cortex
TLDR
Recent findings from anatomical, physiological and ablation studies in monkeys are reviewed, and related findings obtained in humans are discussed in an attempt to identify not only the cognitive functions of the perirhinal cortex, but also the implications of these findings for theoretical views concerning the organization of memory. Expand
Functional organization of the hippocampal memory system.
TLDR
The findings support the view that the cortex maintains various forms of memory representation and that hippocampal structures extend the persistence and mediate the organization of these codings. Expand
What are the functional deficits produced by hippocampal and perirhinal cortex lesions
A hippocampal patient is described who shows preserved item recognition and simple recognition-based recollection but impaired recall and associative recognition. These data and other evidenceExpand
Episodic memory, amnesia, and the hippocampal-anterior thalamic axis.
TLDR
By utilizing new information from both clinical and experimental studies with animals, the anatomy underlying anterograde amnesia has been reformulated and places critical importance on the efferents from the hippocampus via the fornix to the diencephalon. Expand
A cortical–hippocampal system for declarative memory
TLDR
How the cognitive and neural coding mechanisms that underlie declarative memory work together to create and re-create fully networked representations of previous experiences and knowledge about the world are described. Expand

TLDR
It is proving more difficult than originally thought to show a causal relationship between long-term potentiation at the synaptic level and place learning-induced changes in hippocampal synapses. Expand
