Although the hippocampus is usually viewed as a dedicated memory system, its placement at the top of, and strong interactions with, the ventral visual pathway (and other sensory systems) suggest that it may play a role in perception. My lab has recently suggested one potential perceptual function of the hippocampus -- to learn about regularities in the environment and then to generate expectations based on these regularities that get reinstated in visual cortex to influence processing. I will talk about several of our studies using high-resolution fMRI and multivariate methods to characterize such learning and prediction.
