Building memories: remembering and forgetting of verbal experiences as predicted by brain activity.
Findings provide direct evidence that left prefrontal and temporal regions jointly promote memory formation for verbalizable events.

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.

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.

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.

Prefrontal–Temporal Circuitry for Episodic Encoding and Subsequent Memory

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.
