Medial temporal lobe activity during complex discrimination of faces, objects, and scenes: Effects of viewpoint
TLDR
Functional neuroimaging in healthy participants as they performed a version of the oddity discrimination task provides convergent evidence that the MTL is involved in processes beyond long‐term declarative memory and suggests a critical role for these structures in integrating complex features of faces, objects, and scenes into view‐invariant, abstract representations.
High-resolution fMRI of Content-sensitive Subsequent Memory Responses in Human Medial Temporal Lobe
TLDR
The present data suggest a gradient of content sensitivity from posterior (parahippocampal) to anterior (perirhinal) MTL cortex, with MTL cortical regions differentially contributing to successful encoding based on event content.
When recognition memory is independent of hippocampal function
TLDR
The results indicate that structures other than the hippocampus, perhaps the perirhinal cortex, can support face recognition memory in H patients under some conditions, and propose that the role of the hippocampus in recognition memory is related to how recognition decisions are accomplished.
The medial temporal lobe: Memory and beyond
The Role of Relational Binding in Item Memory: Evidence from Face Recognition in a Case of Developmental Amnesia
TLDR
The findings suggest that a compromised hippocampal system disrupts the ability to bind item features within and across study repetitions, ultimately disrupting recognition when it requires access to flexible relational representations.
Components of recognition memory: Dissociable cognitive processes or just differences in representational complexity?
TLDR
A representational‐hierarchical view is described that provides an account of cognition, including mnemonic and perceptual processing, within a brain pathway the authors term the ventral visual‐perirhinal‐hippocampal stream and uses these principles to reconsider some of the evidence for neuroanatomical, dual‐process models of recognition memory.
The role of the medial temporal lobe in discriminating complex object and scene stimuli
TLDR
It was found that young healthy adults at increased genetic risk of AD (ApoE-e4 carriers) showed increased scene-related activity in posterior cingulate cortex (PCC); a region affected, structurally, early in AD.

TLDR
It is argued that data from neuropsychological patient studies relevant to two questions concerning the functions of the medial temporal lobe in humans are consistent with Aggleton and Brown (1999) proposal that familiarity-based recognition memory is not dependent on the hippocampus but is mediated by the perirhinal cortex and dorso-medial thalamic nucleus.
Specialization in the medial temporal lobe for processing of objects and scenes
TLDR
Oddity tasks administered to amnesic patients with either selective hippocampal damage or more extensive medial temporal damage provide compelling evidence that the human hippocampus and perirhinal cortex are critical to processes beyond long‐term declarative memory and may subserve spatial and object perception, respectively.
Visual presentation of novel objects and new spatial arrangements of objects differentially activates the medial temporal lobe subareas in humans
TLDR
A functional magnetic resonance imaging study to compare the medial temporal lobe responses to changes in object identity and spatial configurations of objects found evidence for the predicted distinction between hippocampal and perirhinal cortical activations, although part of the hippocampus was also activated by identification of novel objects.
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.
Double Dissociation between the Effects of Peri-Postrhinal Cortex and Hippocampal Lesions on Tests of Object Recognition and Spatial Memory: Heterogeneity of Function within the Temporal Lobe
TLDR
A clear functional double dissociation was observed: rats with hippocampal lesions were impaired relative to controls and those with peripostrhinal cortex lesions on the spatial memory task, whereas rats with peri-postrhinal lesions were impair relative to the hippocampal and control groups in object recognition.

TLDR
Evidence is provided that despite the strong connectivity between these cortical regions and the hippocampus, the hippocampus has a distinct function of its own—combining information about objects, positions, and contexts.
The human perirhinal cortex and semantic memory
TLDR
Investigation of the status of perirhinal cortex in patients with semantic dementia found greater involvement of this region, together with the temporopolar and anterior entorhinal cortices, in semantic dementia than in either Alzheimer's disease patients or control subjects.
Functional Specialization in the Human Medial Temporal Lobe
Investigations of memory in rats and nonhuman primates have demonstrated functional specialization within the medial temporal lobe (MTL), a set of heavily interconnected structures including the
Recognition memory: What are the roles of the perirhinal cortex and hippocampus?
TLDR
This work focuses on the central issue in this dispute — the relative contributions of the hippocampus and the perirhinal cortex to recognition memory.
