Word list tests evaluated the participants' verbal recall, and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain measured the volume of the medial temporal lobe, including the hippocampus, entorhinal cortex, and parahippocampal cortex.
Analyses of regional gray matter density showed that the regions of gray matter loss were those associated with pain modulation or stress, including the cingulate, insular, and medial frontal cortices, parahippocampal gyri, and thalamus.
Whereas both veridical and false memories activate the hippocampus, the parahippocampal region is activated more strongly by veridical memories.
However, the researchers found that only in Mr Gamm's brain was there activity in three regions thought to be involved solely in longterm memory; the right medial frontal cortex; the right parahippocampal gyri and the right upper anterior cingulate gyrus.
Research now shows the hippocampus and cortical regions adjacent to it (specifically, the entorhinal and parahippocampal cortices) work together to support the development of representations in the neocortex (Squire, 1991).
All seizures began in the right anterior pes and parahippocampal gyrus in the most mesial leads.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Scientists said they have found that suspicion resides in two distinct regions of the brain: the amygdala, which plays a central role in processing fear and emotional memories, and the parahippocampal gyrus, which is associated with declarative memory and the recognition of scenes.
Washington, May 18 ( ANI ): Suspicion resides in two distinct regions of the brain: the amygdala, which plays a central role in processing fear and emotional memories, and the parahippocampal gyrus, which is associated with declarative memory and the recognition of scenes.
That study revealed that a core network of brain regions--including the hippocampus, parahippocampal gyrus and retrosplenial cortex--provides a basis for mentally generating and maintaining a complex and coherent scene in both real and imagined events.
As the amount of prenatal marijuana exposure increased, imaging showed significantly more neural activity in the left inferior and middle frontal gyri, left parahippocampal gyrus, left middle occipital gyrus, and left cerebellum.
The scans showed that activity in the part of the brain that computes the spatial layout of a scene known as the parahippocampal place area was doubled for the sighted volunteers when it was compared with when they looked at images of abstract objects.
All participants were given a 16-word list learning task to measure verbal recall, and underwent magnetic resonance imaging, MRI, to measure volumes of regions of the medial temporal lobes, specifically the hippocampus, entorhinal cortex and parahippocampal cortex.
