Partial recovery from amnesia following bilateral surgical fornix transection is correlated with cortical plasticity

Author(s): N. K. Mazarakis, F. Summers, A. D. Murray, G. D. Waiter, I. P. Fouyas

We report a case of an interventricular ependymoma which was surgically removed but also required bilateral transection of the fornices resulting in memory impairment which gradually improved. Functional MR images using a memory paradigm showed that recovery correlated with cortical plasticity involving activation of the orbitofrontal cortex and the middle temporal gyrus.
