The hippocampus has historically been intensely studied for its role in episodic memory and spatial cognition. In more recent times, attention has been turning to the way in which the hippocampus interacts with its neighbours in the medial temporal lobe, including entorhinal, perirhinal, parahippocampal and subicular cortices. The focus has been both on incoming information and how it is organised, and also on how information is sent back out into the neocortex. The aim of this workshop is to bring together people who are using various techniques, ranging from single neuron recording, lesions, functional imaging and computational modelling, to explore how and why the hippocampus interacts with these other medial temporal cortical structures.
