The Medial Temporal Lobe and Long-Term Memory

Call for papers:
Cognitive Neuroscience: Current Debates, Research & Reports is seeking submissions for a forthcoming special issue entitled “The Medial Temporal Lobe and Long-Term Memory”. Submissions should include empirical papers (Empirical Reports, Brief Reports) focusing on the role of medial temporal lobe regions using cognitive neuroscience methods. Discussion Papers, which include peer commentaries and author replies, are also encouraged.

The medial temporal lobe consists of the hippocampus and, within the adjacent parahippocampal gyrus, the parahippocampal cortex (more posteriorly) and the perirhinal/entorhinal cortex (more anteriorly). One hypothesis is that the parahippocampal cortex processes context information, the perirhinal cortex processes item information, and the hippocampus binds this information during long-term memory. Another hypothesis is that these regions operate as a system during both item memory and context memory. These alternative hypotheses have long been debated. Other debated topics on the medial temporal lobe include whether the hippocampus is associated with only long-term memory or can be associated with working memory, and whether the hippocampus is associated with only explicit long-term memory or can be associated with implicit memory.

This special issue of Cognitive Neuroscience will highlight empirical evidence and theoretical work on medial temporal lobe regions and long-term memory. Appropriate methods include fMRI, focal lesion evidence, intracranial EEG, and depth electrode recording.

Articles for the special issue should conform to the article types for this journal (i.e., Empirical Reports, Brief Reports, or Discussion Papers).  Further details can be found at our journal website: www.cognneurosci.org

Manuscripts should be submitted by Monday the 1st of November 2021.
