Shared and distinct contributions of rostrolateral prefrontal cortex to analogical reasoning and episodic memory retrieval

Andrew Westphal, Nicco Reggente, Kaori Ito, Jesse Rissman Abstract: Rostrolateral prefrontal cortex (RLPFC) is widely appreciated to support higher cognitive functions, including analogical reasoning and episodic memory retrieval. However, these tasks have typically been studied in isolation, and thus it is unclear whether they involve common or distinct RLPFC mechanisms. Here, we introduce a novel […]

Characterizing common and dissociable involvement of medial temporal lobe regions during episodic source memory retrieval and analogical reasoning

Westphal, A.J., Reggente, N., Ito, K., Fortuna, W.H., Nawabi, Y., Milstein, M., & Rissman, J. SfN_2013_Poster  SfN 2013 Abstract Episodic memory and analogical reasoning tasks tend to engage many common frontoparietal structures, perhaps owing to their common demands for declarative memory retrieval and relational integration. Regions of the medial temporal lobe (MTL), well known to […]

Shared and distinct contributions of rostral prefrontal cortex to analogical reasoning and episodic memory retrieval: Insights from fMRI functional connectivity and multivariate pattern analyses

Westphal, A.J., Reggente, N., Nawabi, Y., & Rissman, J. CNS_2013_Poster CNS 2013 Abstract   The rostral prefrontal cortex (RPFC), positioned at the apex of the prefrontal processing hierarchy, has been implicated in a diverse array of high-level cognitive processes including analogical reasoning and episodic memory retrieval—tasks that may share demands for relational integration. However, because […]
