This chapter reviews recent evidence linking medial temporal lobe (MTL) activity to future event simulation, considers alternative interpretations of these observations, and discusses them in relation to other evidence concerning the medial temporal and constructive memory. It focuses on the contributions of two regions within the MTL: the hippocampus and parahippocampal cortex.

Keywords: brain; future event simulation; constructive memory; hippocampus; parahippocampal cortex
