Cortical activity reductions during repetition priming can result from rapid response learning
Experimental support is provided for an alternative hypothesis, in which reduced cortical activity occurs because subjects rapidly learn their previous responses, which highlights the role of the prefrontal cortex in executive control.

The hypothesis that the medial temporal lobes are important for relational memory even over short delays is tested and it is proposed that the hippocampus is critically involved in memory for conjunctions at both short and long delays.
Medial Temporal Lobe Damage Causes Deficits in Episodic Memory and Episodic Future Thinking Not Attributable to Deficits in Narrative Construction

The results indicate that the ability to generate and maintain a detailed narrative is preserved in amnesia and suggest that a common MTL mechanism supports both episodic memory and episodic future thinking.
Working memory and long‐term memory for faces: Evidence from fMRI and global amnesia for involvement of the medial temporal lobes
Parallel neuroimaging and lesion designs suggest that the same hippocampal processes support WM maintenance, for intervals as short as 7 s, and LTM for faces.

Results indicate that response learning consists of the formation of an association between a specific visual representation and a classification decision.
The Neuropsychology of Memory Illusions: False Recall and Recognition in Amnesic Patients
It is suggested that false recognition of nonstudied words preceded by numerous associates depends on the same kinds of semantic and associative information about study list words that also supports accurate recognition.
Patterns of Autobiographical Memory Loss in Medial-Temporal Lobe Amnesic Patients

Detailed investigations of autobiographical episodic memory in people with amnesia resulting from MTL lesions of varying extent show that the severity of episodic, but not semantic, AM loss is best accounted for by the degree of hippocampal damage and less likely related to additional neocortical compromise.
A role for right medial prefrontal cortex in accurate feeling-of-knowing judgments: evidence from patients with lesions to frontal cortex
Fear recognition deficits after focal brain damage
Fear recognition deficits in neurologic patients may be attributable to task difficulty factors rather than damage to putative neural systems dedicated to fear perception.
