Chapter 234: Fusiform Gyrus

In Uncategorized on August 22, 2011 at 3:01 am

I pause for a drink of water, then read on.

MRIs of patients exemplifying Fregoli symptoms have shown parahippocampal and hippocampal damage in the anterior fusiform gyrus, as well as the middle and inferior of the right temporal gyri. The inferior and medial of the right temporal gyri are the storage locations for long term memory in retrieving information on visual recognition, specifically of faces; thus, damage to these intricate connections could be one of the leading factors in face misidentification disorders. Such damage may cause disruption in long term visual memory and lead to improper associations of human faces.
