We report three cases with unilateral thalamic ischemic lesions that resulted in lasting material-specific memory impairments and concomitant selective frontal lobe-related cognitive deficits. In two cases the lesions were limited to the left thalamus, and in the third the right thalamus was involved. These deficits were associated with ipsilateral diencephalic, striatal, and dorsolateral prefrontal hypoperfusion. The damage implicated the ventral anterior nucleus, the mamillothalamic tract… CONTINUE READING
