Abstract In Reply.— McEntee et al quite appropriately call attention to the fact that severe memory disorders are associated with thalamic lesions that apparently spare the mammillary bodies and its connections as demonstrated by their case.

Sudden onset of severe memory disturbance usually implies lesions in the areas adjacent to the third ventricle, but to say that the damage is "undoubtedly" anterior—namely, in the hippocampalfornix-mammillary circuits—is probably to overstate the case. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Neurology American Medical Association
