Retrieval-induced forgetting in episodic memory.
TLDR
Across experiments, retrieval-induced forgetting was observed for different perceptual groupings and for different cuing procedures, but the effect, however, required retrieval of information during the interpolated phase.
Source memory enhancement for emotional words.
TLDR
The influence of emotional stimuli on source memory was investigated by using emotionally valenced words, suggesting that even memory for contextual information is benefited by emotional stimuli.

TLDR
A review of the neural correlates of episodic retrieval is presented along with a new theory, cortical binding of relational activity (CoBRA), which says the vPPC acts as a convergence zone that binds episodic features stored in disparate neocortical regions.
Cognitive impairment following frontal lobe damage and its relevance to human amnesia.
Whether frontal lobe pathology can account for some of the cognitive impairment observed in amnesic patients with Korsakoff's syndrome was investigated. Various cognitive and memory tests were given

TLDR
An evaluation of the proposal by Fernandez-Duque et al. is made, and it is suggested that there is considerable convergence of issues associated with metacognition, executive control, working memory, and frontal lobe function.
Priming across modalities and priming across category levels: extending the domain of preserved function in amnesia.
TLDR
The results extend the domain in which preserved priming effects can be observed in amnesia and suggest that features of priming observed in normal subjects describe a capacity that is independent of the brain system damaged in amNES.
