In fact, they grew up a few miles apart, and Dr. Corkin lived on the same street as Scoville, the doctor who performed the operation on H.M. in 1953. Scoville later renounced experimental brain surgery and suggested H.M. as a possible research subject to Brenda Milner, a neuroscientist who became Dr. Corkin’s mentor at McGill.

The medial temporal lobe consists of structures that are vital for declarative or long-term memory. Declarative (denotative) or explicitmemory is conscious memory divided into semantic memory (facts) and episodic memory (events).[4]:194 Medial temporal lobe structures that are critical for long-term memory include the hippocampus, along with the surrounding hippocampal region consisting of the perirhinal, parahippocampal, and entorhinal neocortical regions.[4]:196 The hippocampus is critical for memory formation, and the surrounding medial temporal cortex is currently theorized to be critical for memory storage.[4]:21 The prefrontal and visual cortices are also involved in explicit memory.[4]:21

Research has shown that lesions in the hippocampus of monkeys results in limited impairment of function, whereas extensive lesions that include the hippocampus and the medial temporal cortex result in severe impairment.[5]
