A distributed representation of temporal context
TLDR
This work demonstrates that TCM can simultaneously explain recency and contiguity effects across time scales, and provides a principled explanation of the widespread advantage for forward recalls in free and serial recall.
Associative retrieval processes in free recall

  • 1996
TLDR
A new method for analyzing associative processes in free recall is presented, which illustrates the importance of association by contiguity by examining conditional response probabilities in the output sequence.
Cellular networks underlying human spatial navigation
TLDR
Evidence is presented for a neural code of human spatial navigation based on cells that respond at specific spatial locations and cells thatrespond to views of landmarks that are present primarily in the hippocampus and the parahippocampal region.
Broadband Shifts in Local Field Potential Power Spectra Are Correlated with Single-Neuron Spiking in Humans
TLDR
It is found that firing rates were positively correlated with broadband (2–150 Hz) shifts in the LFP power spectrum and narrowband oscillations correlated both positively and negatively with firing rates at different recording sites.
Contextual variability and serial position effects in free recall.
TLDR
Both the end of list Recency effect and the lag recency effect, across all distractor conditions, can be explained by a single-store model in which context, retrieved with each recalled item, serves as a cue for subsequent recalls.
Theta and Gamma Oscillations during Encoding Predict Subsequent Recall
TLDR
Findings implicate theta and gamma oscillatory activity, across a widespread network of cortical regions, in the formation of new episodic memories in epileptic patients undergoing invasive monitoring.
A context maintenance and retrieval model of organizational processes in free recall.
The authors present the context maintenance and retrieval (CMR) model of memory search, a generalized version of the temporal context model of M. W. Howard and M. J. Kahana (2002a), which proposes
Associative symmetry and memory theory

  • 1 September 2002
TLDR
This article reexamines the theory and data concerning two opposing views of episodic association, revealing that symmetric and asymmetric models can mimic each other, offering identical predictions regarding forward and backward recall.
A context-based theory of recency and contiguity in free recall.
TLDR
A new model of free recall on the basis of M. Kahana's temporal context model and M. McClelland's leaky-accumulator decision model is presented, demonstrating that dissociations between short- and long-term recency can naturally arise from a model in which an internal contextual state is used as the sole cue for retrieval across time scales.
Foundations of Human Memory
TLDR
This chapter discusses association, Context, and Episodic Memory, and theories of Sequence Memory, which aims to clarify the role of association in learning and provide evidence for a phonological STS.
