Complementary learning systems (CLS) theory describes how the hippocampal and cortical contributions to recognition memory are a direct result of their architectural and computational specializations. In this paper we model a further refinement of CLS that features separate handling of inputs from the dorsal and ventral posterior cortices, and present a possible mechanism for adaptive recall in hippocampus based on several research findings that have not previously been related to each other. This model suggests how we are able to recognize familiar objects in unfamiliar settings.
