and parahippocampal lesions, on the other hand. If the impairment resulting from damage to the perirhinal and parahippocampal cortices is due, in part, to a disconnection of the perirhinal and parahippocampal cortices from the hippocampal formation (i.e., to substantial loss of sensory information to the hippocampal formation), then damage to the entorhinal cortex should produce a substantial deficit, perhaps as severe as the perirhinal and parahippocampal lesion itself. Alternatively, if the
