Table 3. Correlations between the AMY and the MTL memory regions
MTL regions AMY-MTL correlations: R scores (emotional rRS) AMY-MTL correlations: R scores (neutral rRS) AMY-MTL correlations: R scores (emotional kRS) AMYgdala-MTL correlations: R scores (neutral kRS)

  • Correlations were calculated between the AMY and the MTL memory regions showing greater recollection- vs. familiarity-based retrieval success activity for emotional than for neutral pictures. The greatest differences were in the case of recollection-based responses. Similar to Table 2, the signals from posterior HC/parahippocampal regions were averaged together. RS, (hits - misses); rRS, recollection-based RS; kRS, familiarity-based RS. *, P < 0.05; **, P < 0.01; ***, P < 0.005; ****, P < 0.0005.
