Imaging methods: Memory research in volunteers Featured

Using a novel approach of imaging and high-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), neuroscientists and physicists from MPI CBS in Leipzig, Germany, together with neuroanatomist Menno Witter from the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in Trondheim, Norway, have explored the human memory system.

As the research team writes in a recent press release, they were able to discover previously unknown cortical networks and gain insight into the anatomical organization of the human memory system.

The scientists recently published their results in the renowned scientific journal "Neuron":
Reznik D, Trampel R, Weiskopf N, Witter MP, Doeller CF. (2023). Dissociating distinct cortical networks associated with subregions of the human medial temporal lobe using precision neuroimaging. Neuron. Jun 23: S0896-6273(23)00402-6. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2023.05.029. epub ahead of print. PMID: 37390820.
