According to dual process models of recognition memory, patients with selective damage to the hippocampal system should have a selective deficit in the process of recollection only whereas patients with selective damage to the perirhinal system should only demonstrate impaired familiarity. The present project is investigating these predictions in a unique patient with a selective lesion to the left entorhinal cortex.
