Abstract

This chapter presents overview of state-of-the-art knowledge about the contribution of medial temporal lobes (MTL), prefrontal, and parietal regions to episodic recollection. It discusses the wealth of evidence gathered from patients with brain lesions, and electrophysiological and neuroimaging research. It also takes a closer look at functional specialization of media temporal subregions and proposes an intriguing neurocognitive model that accounts for a wealth of data and discriminates between MTL substrates of recollection and familiarity.
