Dissociable roles for cortical and subcortical structures in memory retrieval and acquisition

Abstract:

The relationship between anterograde and retrograde amnesia remains unclear. Previous data from both clinical neuropsychology and monkey lesion studies suggest that damage to discrete subcortical structures leads to a relatively greater degree of anterograde than retrograde amnesia, whereas damage to discrete regions of cortex leads to the opposite pattern of impairments. Nevertheless, damage to the medial diencephalon in humans is associated with both retrograde and anterograde amnesia. In t...
