The Cognitive Neuroscience of Memory

Howard Eichenbaum

Oxford University Press

This chapter first summarizes the anatomy of the prefrontal cortex. It then reviews the functional role of the prefrontal cortex, including a consideration of whether it is involved in memory per se or other cognitive processes related to memory, and whether this expansive area has specialized subdivisions between or within the hemispheres. This is followed by considering the parcellation of functions and cooperation between the prefrontal cortex and other higher-order cortical areas, including a review of findings on how the prefrontal cortex interacts with the medial temporal lobe in support of long-term declarative memory.

Keywords:   prefrontal cortex, memory, cognitive process, cortical areas, medial temporal lobe, declarative memory
