The role of phase synchronization in memory processes
In recent years, studies ranging from single-unit recordings in animals to electroencephalography and magnetoencephalography studies in humans have demonstrated the pivotal role of phaseExpand

Cross-frequency coupling supports multi-item working memory in the human hippocampus
Recent findings indicate that the hippocampus supports not only long-term memory encoding but also plays a role in working memory (WM) maintenance of multiple items; however, the neural mechanismExpand

Hierarchical nesting of slow oscillations, spindles and ripples in the human hippocampus during sleep
During systems-level consolidation, mnemonic representations initially reliant on the hippocampus are thought to migrate to neocortical sites for more permanent storage, with an eminent role of sleepExpand

Deep Brain Stimulation to Reward Circuitry Alleviates Anhedonia in Refractory Major Depression
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) to different sites allows interfering with dysfunctional network function implicated in major depression. Because a prominent clinical feature of depression isExpand

Sustained Neural Activity Patterns during Working Memory in the Human Medial Temporal Lobe
In contrast to classical findings that the medial temporal lobe (MTL) specifically underlies long-term memory, previous data suggest that MTL structures may also contribute to working memory (WM).Expand

High-frequency neural activity and human cognition: Past, present and possible future of intracranial EEG research
Human intracranial EEG (iEEG) recordings are primarily performed in epileptic patients for presurgical mapping. When patients perform cognitive tasks, iEEG signals reveal high-frequency neuralExpand

Ripples in the medial temporal lobe are relevant for human memory consolidation.
High-frequency oscillations (ripples) have been described in the hippocampus and rhinal cortex of both animals and human subjects and have been linked to replay and consolidation of previouslyExpand

Memory Consolidation by Replay of Stimulus-Specific Neural Activity
Memory consolidation transforms initially labile memory traces into more stable representations. One putative mechanism for consolidation is the reactivation of memory traces after their initialExpand

Phase/amplitude reset and theta–gamma interaction in the human medial temporal lobe during a continuous word recognition memory task
We analyzed intracranial electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings from the medial temporal lobes of 12 epilepsy patients during a continuous word recognition paradigm, contrasting trials of correctlyExpand

Memory formation by neuronal synchronization
Cognitive functions not only depend on the localization of neural activity, but also on the precise temporal pattern of activity in neural assemblies. Synchronization of action potential dischargesExpand
