The current investigation explored processes associated with memory deficits in patients with frontal lobe dysfunction. Specifically, we examined deficits associated with the encoding, consolidation, and retrieval of information in memory in 53 patients who underwent either a unilateral frontal (N=13) or temporal (N=40) lobe resection for relief of intractable epilepsy. Post-surgical memory scores indicated that the frontal group and the temporal group did not differ in consolidation of… CONTINUE READING
