Effects of extensive temporal lobe damage or mild hypoxia on recollection and familiarity
TLDR
It is found that the regions disrupted in mild hypoxia, such as the hippocampus, are centrally involved in conscious recollection, whereas the surrounding temporal lobe supports familiarity-based memory discrimination.
Recollection and familiarity deficits in amnesia: convergence of remember-know, process dissociation, and receiver operating characteristic data.
TLDR
A reanalysis of studies using the process dissociation and the remember-know procedures with a dual-process signal-detection model that incorporates response bias revealed that amnesia led to a pronounced reduction in recollection and smaller but consistent reduction in familiarity.
Cohesion Failure as a Source of Memory Illusions
TLDR
Patients with damage to either side of their hippocampal formation made more conjunction errors with pictorial stimuli than did normal subjects, supporting the hypothesis that binding is an important early step in the consolidation process and that the hippocampus is a critical component of the neural system involved in the appropriate binding of memory components.
Novelty assessment in the brain and long-term memory encoding
TLDR
It is proposed that the efficacy of encoding on-line information into long-term memory depends on the novelty of the information as determined by these networks, and a test of this “novelty/encoding” hypothesis is reported.
Recognition memory for faces: When familiarity supports associative recognition judgments
TLDR
The results suggest that familiarity can support associative recognition judgments, if the associated components are encoded as a coherent gestalt, as in upright faces.
Oscillatory EEG correlates of episodic trace decay.
TLDR
It is concluded that episodic encoding can be characterized by two different stages: traces are first processed at parietal sites at approximately 300 ms, then further processing takes place in regions of the medial temporal lobe at approximately 500 ms, and only the first stage is related to theta.
Confidence-accuracy inversions in scene recognition: a remember-know analysis.
TLDR
It is proposed that although "knowing" can be accommodated within an equal variance signal-detection account, "remembering" is governed by contextual constraints that influence the distinctiveness of information upon which participants rely during reports.
Separating sensitivity from response bias: implications of comparisons of yes-no and forced-choice tests for models and measures of recognition memory.
TLDR
The current study applied several sets of measurement models to both forced-choice and yes-no recognition memory tests and concluded that the traditional signal-detection model resulted in distorted estimates of accuracy.
Lag‐sensitive repetition suppression effects in the anterior parahippocampal gyrus
TLDR
It is demonstrated that activity in the human medial temporal cortex, like that of monkeys, exhibits repetition suppression effects that are sensitive to the length of the interval between repetitions.
