Award Description: This project will use high-resolution neuroimaging to investigate how different parts of the human medial temporal lobe contribute to different memory functions. We will identify those regions that are active during learning which are associated with durable episodic memory in contrast to those regions in which encoding activity is associated with memory that fades to feelings of familiarity over the course of a delay.
Project Description: This project will use cutting edge neuroimaging techniques to understand fundamental issues of memory processing in human subjects. Information about subregional activation will provide data for testing computational models of medial temporal lobe function. In addition, this work will facilitate the development of neurobiological strategies to overcome memory loss associated with aging and disease.
