A deficit in familiarity-driven recognition in a right-sided mediodorsal thalamic lesion patient.
A memory profile, marked by a dissociation between familiarity and recollection, fits naturally with the DPSD model and is incompatible with the idea that these kinds of memories reflect different degrees of trace strength.
Functional Specialization of the Medial Temporal Lobes in Human Recognition Memory: Dissociating Effects of Hippocampal versus Parahippocampal Damage
While the data provide the most compelling support yet for dual-process models of recognition memory, in which recollection and familiarity depend on different MTL structures, they suggest that familiarity depends more strongly upon the parahippocampal rather than perirhinal cortex.
Memory loss resulting from fornix and septal damage: impaired supra-span recall but preserved recognition over a 24-hour delay.
DN showed a marked, stable anterograde memory impairment that was still present 4 years postsurgery, but performed within normal levels on most tests of recognition memory, and this recall/recognition dissociation provides further evidence for neuroanatomical divisions within recognition memory processes.
Impaired recollection but spared familiarity in patients with extended hippocampal system damage revealed by 3 convergent methods
The convergent evidence that mammillary body atrophy impairs recall but spares familiarity-based recognition appears irreconcilable with single-process models.


Dissociation Between Recall and Recognition Memory Performance in an Amnesic Patient with Hippocampal Damage Following Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
It is reported here the case of an amnesic patient who suffered bilateral hippocampal damage and temporoparietal atrophy after carbon monoxide poisoning, and in a task using the process dissociation procedure, the patient's familiarity was preserved although his recollection was impaired.
Impaired recognition memory in patients with lesions limited to the hippocampal formation.
Recognition memory impairment is a robust feature of human amnesia, even when damage is limited primarily to the hippocampus, and it is shown that recognition memory is impaired after damage limited to the hippocampal region.
Episodic memory, amnesia, and the hippocampal–anterior thalamic axis
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.
Relative sparing of item recognition memory in a patient with adult‐onset damage limited to the hippocampus
To determine whether early lesion onset is critical for the relative sparing of item recognition and to determine whether its occurrence is influenced by task factors, this work extensively examined item recognition in patient Y.R., who has pathology of adult‐onset restricted to the hippocampus.
Associative recognition in a patient with selective hippocampal lesions and relatively normal item recognition
YR's familiarity memory for items, intra‐item associations, and associations between items of the same kind was mediated by her intact medial temporal lobe cortices and was preserved, whereas her hippocampally mediated recall/recollection of these kinds of information was impaired.
Amnesia and recognition memory: A re-analysis of psychometric data
Images of Medial Temporal Lobe Functions in Human Learning and Memory
Three functional imaging studies that reveal different patterns of MTL activation associated with declarative and procedural memory tasks are reviewed, revealing suppression of the MTL during striatum-dependent cognitive skill learning.
Selective sparing of face learning in a global amnesic patient
This patient who developed a global amnesic syndrome after acute carbon monoxide poisoning is indicative of the fact that the neural circuits involved in face recognition are distinct from those involved in the recognition of other visuoperceptual material (for example, topographical scenes).
