Abstract: Two amnesic patients with MTL damage that included the hippocampus and perirhinal cortex were tested along controls on a series of “oddity” discrimination tasks, in which they had to select an odd item from a visual array. Participants’ eye moments were monitored while they performed these tasks. Three types of stimuli were used: greebles, scenes, and faces. Results revealed that patients were impaired on tasks that required them to discriminate between items that shared features in common and tasks that required processing items from different viewpoints. An analysis of their eye movements revealed that their impaired performance was linked with decreased viewing times of target items compared to controls, when discriminating between greebles and scenes; their poor performance on the faces task could not be explained by the same token.
