Associative memory and the medial temporal lobes
The neural system that mediates familiarity memory
TLDR
The neural system that underlies scene familiarity memory was identified by identifying the hippocampus, and left anterior and inferolateral frontal and parietal cortices more than strong familiarity, and no brain region that was unaffected by recollection was modulated by variations in familiarity strength.
Neural correlates of encoding in an incidental learning paradigm.
The role of recollection and familiarity in the functional differentiation of the medial temporal lobes
TLDR
There has been disagreement about whether recall/recollection is primarily mediated by the hippocampus and familiarity by the evolutionarily newer MTL cortices or whether the MTL mediates these kinds of memory in an integrated, homogeneous fashion.
Voxel-Based Morphometry Reveals Increased Gray Matter Density in Broca's Area in Male Symphony Orchestra Musicians
TLDR
It is suggested that orchestral musical performance promotes use-dependent retention, and possibly expansion, of gray matter involving Broca's area and that this provides further support for shared neural substrates underpinning expressive output in music and language.
Under what conditions is recognition spared relative to recall after selective hippocampal damage in humans?
TLDR
Independent evidence from the remember/know procedure also indicates that YR's familiarity is normal, and the Complementary Learning Systems model can accommodate the clear impairment of forced‐choice object–location recognition memory if it incorporates the view that the most complete convergence of spatial and object information, represented in different cortical regions, occurs in the hippocampus.
When memory does not fail: familiarity-based recognition in mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease.
Recognition can be guided by familiarity, a restricted form of retrieval devoid of contextual recall, or by recollection, which occurs when retrieval is sufficient to support the full experience of
A disproportionate role for the fornix and mammillary bodies in recall versus recognition memory
TLDR
These findings support models of diencephalic memory mechanisms that require hippocampal inputs for recall, but not for key elements of recognition, as the volumes of the left fornix and the left mammillary bodies decreased, the difference between recall and recognition scores increased.
