Neuronal mechanisms in prefrontal and temporal lobe cortical areas underlying perceptual and mnemonic processes

Abstract:

The medial temporal lobe (MTL) cortical areas, including hippocampus, perirhinal and entorhinal cortex and parahippocampal cortex, are known to support recognition memory. Inferotemporal cortex (IT) is involved in processing visual stimulus during recognition memory, and reciprocally projects to some regions of MTL (e.g. perirhinal cortex). Many neuroimaging, neuropsychological and neurophysiological studies have also emphasized the role of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) in maintaining inform...
