Recent neurobiological studies have begun to reveal the cognitive and neural coding mechanisms that underlie declarative memory — our ability to recollect everyday events and factual knowledge. These studies indicate that the critical circuitry involves bidirectional connections between the neocortex, the parahippocampal region and the hippocampus. Each of these areas makes a unique contribution to memory processing. Widespread high-order neocortical areas provide dedicated processors for… 
Mechanisms for widespread hippocampal involvement in cognition.
TLDR
A theoretical framework for how the hippocampus interacts with other brain systems and cognitive processes is developed, consistent with an emerging view that the most fertile ground for discovery in cognitive psychology and neuroscience lies at the interface between parts of the mind and brain that have traditionally been studied in isolation.
Prefrontal–hippocampal interaction during the encoding of new memories
TLDR
A model positing that the medial prefrontal cortex and hippocampus might use different strategies to encode information during novel experiences, leading to the parallel formation of complementary memory traces in the two regions is proposed.
Mnemonic convergence in the human hippocampus
TLDR
The hippocampus is identified as mnemonic convergence zone, underlying the integration of distributed information into episodic memory representations, using a combination of multivariate pattern and graph-theoretical network analyses of functional magnetic resonance imaging data from humans performing an associative memory task.
Sites of Neocortical Reorganization Critical for Remote Spatial Memory
TLDR
Consolidation of spatial memory requires a time-dependent hippocampal-cortical dialogue, ultimately enabling widespread cortical networks to mediate effortful recall and use of cortically stored remote memories independently.
The cognitive neuroscience og remembering
TLDR
This work describes how domain-specific cortical regions are reactivated during vivid remembering and contribute to the contents of a memory, and describes how these regions interact to orchestrate an act of remembering.

TLDR
It is proposed that the perirhinal cortex works as the ventromedial hub of a ‘two-hub model’ at an apex of the hierarchy of a distributed memory network and integrates signals encoded in other downstream cortical areas that support diverse aspects of knowledge about an object.
The Episodic Memory System: Neurocircuitry and Disorders
TLDR
A growing body of evidence is converging on a functional organization of the cortical, subcortical, and MTL structures that support the fundamental features of episodic memory in humans and animals.

TLDR
The role of the hippocampus is considered, which is needed temporarily to bind together distributed sites in neocortex that together represent a whole memory.
Why there are complementary learning systems in the hippocampus and neocortex: insights from the successes and failures of connectionist models of learning and memory.
TLDR
The account presented here suggests that memories are first stored via synaptic changes in the hippocampal system, that these changes support reinstatement of recent memories in the neocortex, that neocortical synapses change a little on each reinstatement, and that remote memory is based on accumulated neocorticals changes.
The global record of memory in hippocampal neuronal activity
TLDR
Training rats to perform the same recognition memory task in several distinct locations in a rich spatial environment found that the activity of many hippocampal neurons was related consistently to perceptual, behavioural or cognitive events, regardless of the location where these events occurred, indicating that non-spatial events are fundamental elements of hippocampal representation.
Distribution of spatial and nonspatial information in dorsal hippocampus
TLDR
It is shown that hippocampal neurons in the rat are distributed anatomically in distinct segments along the length of the hippocampus, which represents a structural framework that may help to resolve conflicting views of hippocampal function.

TLDR
The basic properties of declarative memory in human beings can be viewed as evolving from a capacity for organized memory representation and flexible memory expression in animals.

A neural model is presented, based largely on evidence from studies in monkeys, postulating that coded representation of stimuli are stored in the higher-order sensory (i.e. association) areas of the
Conservation of hippocampal memory function in rats and humans
TLDR
Normal rats demonstrated two forms of flexible memory expression, transitivity, the ability to judge inferentially across stimulus pairs that share a common element, and symmetry, the able to associate paired elements presented in the reverse of training order, indicating that non-spatial declarative processing depends specifically on the hippocampus in animals as it does in humans.
Episodic memory, amnesia, and the hippocampal–anterior thalamic axis
TLDR
By utilizing new information from both clinical and experimental studies with animals, the anatomy underlying anterograde amnesia has been reformulated and places critical importance on the efferents from the hippocampus via the fornix to the diencephalon.
