Associative Memory in the Medial Temporal Lobe

Yuji Naya, Wendy A. Suzuki

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reviews the role of the medial temporal lobe in associative memory. Part I presents the results from behavioral neurophysiological studies focused on recording in both the perirhinal cortex and area TE during the performance of well-learned visualvisual paired associate (VPA) tasks. Part II reviews the neurophysiological studies in the medial temporal lobe that have examined the development of new associative representations. These studies reveal dynamic changes in both the perirhinal cortex and hippocampus during the acquisition of new associative memories.
