The medial temporal lobe: memory and beyond.

  title={The medial temporal lobe: memory and beyond.},
  author={Robert Kazimierz Lech and Boris Suchan},
  journal={Behavioural brain research},
The structures of the medial temporal lobe, e.g., the hippocampus, entorhinal cortex, perirhinal cortex, and parahippocampal cortex, are known to be essential for long-term memory processing and hence are labeled the medial temporal lobe memory system. Nevertheless, the exact contributions of each structure and the involvement in different cognitive processes remain controversial. This article discusses recent findings dealing with recognition memory and a long lasting involvement of the… CONTINUE READING
