Recollection and familiarity: Examining controversial assumptions and new directions
TLDR
A simple quantitative model of recognition memory (i.e., the dual‐process signal detection model) is described that has been useful in integrating findings from a broad range of cognitive studies, and that is now being applied in a growing number of neuroscientific investigations of memory.
Fatigue in Rapsyn-Deficient Zebrafish Reflects Defective Transmitter Release
TLDR
It is found that synaptic responses in mutant fish can follow faithfully low-frequency stimuli despite the reduced amplitude, and the possibility that defects in motor neuron function may also be at play in other myasthenic syndromes that have been mapped to mutations in muscle-specific proteins is raised.
Cortical Overlap and Cortical-Hippocampal Interactions Predict Subsequent True and False Memory
TLDR
It is shown that increased overlap in cortical representations for conceptually-related pictures is associated with increased recognition of repeated concept pictures, which suggests that the differentiability of brain patterns during perception is related to the differentiable of items in memory, but that fine-grain discrimination depends on the interaction between cortex and hippocampus.
Familiarity is related to conceptual implicit memory: An examination of individual differences
TLDR
The results demonstrated that, across participants, familiarity, but not recollection, was significantly correlated with conceptual priming, which is consistent with models assuming that familiarity-based recognition and conceptual implicit memory rely on similar underlying processes.
