The neural bases of declarative memory and priming using studies of brain damaged patients, and fMRI studies of priming, familiarity, recollection, and spatial memory in normal subjects. In recent years, there has been a focus on studying patients with relatively selective fornix lesions that result from colloid surgery: recognition, recall, familarity and recollection have been examined in these patients. The major focus is however, on event-related fMRI studies of familarity and recollection and, most recently, of eye movement and pupil dilation correlates of familarity that will be investigated behaviourally and using fMRI.
