The Inferior Parietal Lobule and Recognition Memory: Expectancy Violation or Successful Retrieval?
TLDR
It is suggested that damage to these regions should impair memory-linked orienting behavior and not retrieval per se, and that SMG activation tracked the decision biases of observers, not their accuracy, with increased activation for nondominant recognition judgments. Expand
The persistence of erroneous familiarity in an epileptic male: Challenging perceptual theories of déjà vu activation
TLDR
Déjà vu is likely to be the result of a cognitive feeling borne of the erroneous activation of neural familiarity circuits such as the parahippocampal gyrus, persisting as long as this activation persists. Expand
The Role of Left Ventrolateral Prefrontal Cortex during Episodic Decisions: Semantic Elaboration or Resolution of Episodic Interference?
TLDR
Comparing context and item memory retrieval tasks for meaningful and nonmeaningful memoranda using fMRI demonstrates that the activation previously seen during episodic tasks likely reflects semantic processing of the probes during episodi retrieval attempt, not the selection among competing elicited episodic representations. Expand
Novel insights into false recollection: A model of déjà vécu
TLDR
It is suggested that a region downstream of the hippocampus signals “recollection” by detecting the timing of firing in hippocampal output neurons relative to the theta oscillation, and thatruptions to this “temporal coding” mechanism result in false signals of recollection which may occur without actual retrieval and which, ironically, may arise particularly during situations of contextual novelty.

Salience network-midbrain dysconnectivity and blunted reward signals in schizophrenia
TLDR
The findings support the notion that reward processing is abnormal in schizophrenia and highlight the potential role of abnormal interactions between the insula-ACC salience network and reward regions. Expand
Cue generation and memory construction in direct and generative autobiographical memory retrieval
TLDR
This work investigated whether direct and generative retrieval differed in the characteristics of memories recalled, or only in terms of retrieval latency, and indicated that direct retrieval was commonly reported and was faster than generatively retrieval, replicating recent findings. Expand
Developing hypnotic analogues of clinical delusions: Mirrored-self misidentification
TLDR
The hypnotic suggestion created a credible, compelling delusion with features strikingly similar to clinical cases of mirrored-self misidentification, suggesting that Factor 2 within Langdon and Coltheart's two-factor framework may involve a lowering of the criteria used to accept or reject delusional hypotheses. Expand
Recognition Without Identification, Erroneous Familiarity, and Déjà Vu
TLDR
The need for more experimentation and a more cautious interpretation of research findings is suggested, particularly as many techniques being used to explore déjà vu are in the early stages of development. Expand
Déjà Vu in the Laboratory: A Behavioral and Experiential Comparison of Posthypnotic Amnesia and Posthypnotic Familiarity
TLDR
The findings of this experiment highlight the value of using hypnosis as a laboratory analogue of déjà vu and provide a framework for investigating clinical manifestations of this phenomenon. Expand
The awareness of novelty for strangely familiar words: a laboratory analogue of the déjà vu experience
TLDR
It is proposed that verifiable novelty is an important component of both naturalistic and experimental analogues of déjà vu, and aspects of the naturalistic déjaa vu experience were captured by this analogue, but that the analogue was also limited in its focus and prone to influence by demand characteristics.
