Building memories: remembering and forgetting of verbal experiences as predicted by brain activity.
TLDR
Findings provide direct evidence that left prefrontal and temporal regions jointly promote memory formation for verbalizable events. Expand
Parietal lobe contributions to episodic memory retrieval
TLDR
This article surveys the fMRI literature on PPC activation during remembering, a literature that complements earlier electroencephalography data and proposes three hypotheses concerning how parietal cortex might contribute to memory. Expand
Cognitive control in media multitaskers
TLDR
Results demonstrate that media multitasking, a rapidly growing societal trend, is associated with a distinct approach to fundamental information processing, with heavy media multitaskers more susceptible to interference from irrelevant environmental stimuli and from irrelevant representations in memory. Expand
Functional Specialization for Semantic and Phonological Processing in the Left Inferior Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging results suggest that a distinct region in the left inferior frontal cortex is involved in semantic processing, whereas other regions may subserve phonological processes engaged during both semantic and phonological tasks. Expand
Dissociable Controlled Retrieval and Generalized Selection Mechanisms in Ventrolateral Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
Left anterior VLPFC and middle temporal cortex were sensitive to cue-target-associative strength, but not competition, consistent with a control process that retrieves knowledge stored in lateral temporal cortex, and factor analysis revealed evidence for a metafactor that accounted for common behavioral variance across manipulations. Expand
Left ventrolateral prefrontal cortex and the cognitive control of memory
TLDR
Evidence supports a two-process model of mnemonic control, supported by a double dissociation among rostral regions of left VLPFC, that operates post-retrieval to resolve competition among active representations. Expand
Recovering Meaning Left Prefrontal Cortex Guides Controlled Semantic Retrieval
TLDR
The present event-related fMRI study provides evidence for an alternative hypothesis: LIPC guides controlled semantic retrieval irrespective of whether retrieval requires selection against competing representations. Expand
Multiple routes to memory: Distinct medial temporal lobe processes build item and source memories
TLDR
This work used event-related functional MRI to examine the relation between activation in distinct medial temporal lobe subregions during memory formation and the ability to later recognize an item as previously encountered and later recollect specific contextual details about the prior encounter. Expand
Semantic encoding and retrieval in the left inferior prefrontal cortex: a functional MRI study of task difficulty and process specificity
TLDR
Findings suggest that the left inferior prefrontal cortex (LIPC) is part of a semantic executive system that contributes to the on-line retrieval of semantic information. Expand
Prefrontal–Temporal Circuitry for Episodic Encoding and Subsequent Memory
TLDR
The results suggest that regions that demonstrate a sensitivity to novelty may actively support encoding processes that impact subsequent explicit memory and multiple content-dependent prefrontal–temporal circuits support event encoding. Expand
