Dissociable neural correlates of item and context retrieval in the medial temporal lobes
issociable neural correlates of item and context retrieval in the edial temporal lobes
TLDR
Results provide direct evidence that, even when stimulus type is held constant, the PRc and PHc are supp preferentially involved in Episodic memory, which reflects the ability to remember that an object was previously presented in a specific temporal or spaial context.
The role of the medial temporal lobe in discriminating complex object and scene stimuli
TLDR
It was found that young healthy adults at increased genetic risk of AD (ApoE-e4 carriers) showed increased scene-related activity in posterior cingulate cortex (PCC); a region affected, structurally, early in AD.
Medial temporal lobe contributions to cued retrieval of items and contexts
Parahippocampal cortex activation during context reinstatement predicts item recollection.
TLDR
Brain activation with functional magnetic resonance imaging in response to covert reinstatement of a cognitive context, prior to presenting an item memory probe is measured to suggest that PHc activation is correlated with cognitive context retrieval.
Temporal context processing within hippocampal subfields
Age-related functional changes in domain-specific medial temporal lobe pathways
Brain Mechanisms of Successful Recognition through Retrieval of Semantic Context
TLDR
This study used fMRI to determine the extent to which the recruitment of regions in the recollection network is contingent on context reinstatement, and implicate medial temporal areas in the retrieval of semantic context, contributing to, but dissociation from, recollective experience.
Memory for items and relationships among items embedded in realistic scenes: disproportionate relational memory impairments in amnesia.
TLDR
The results are consistent with the proposed role of the hippocampus in relational memory binding and representation, even at short delays, and suggest that the hippocampus may also contribute to successful item memory when items are embedded in complex scenes.
Object and spatial mnemonic interference differentially engage lateral and medial entorhinal cortex in humans
TLDR
A conceptual model of how object and spatial interference are reduced in the regions providing input to the hippocampus, allowing rich, distinct memories to be built is proposed, and novel evidence for a domain-selective dissociation between lateral and medial entorhinal cortex in humans and between perirhinal and parahippocampal cortex as a function of information content is demonstrated.

A familiarity signal in human anterior medial temporal cortex?
TLDR
It is reported that experimentally familiar items elicit smaller hemodynamic responses in human anterior MTL, consistent with the findings from nonhuman primates.
High-resolution fMRI of Content-sensitive Subsequent Memory Responses in Human Medial Temporal Lobe
TLDR
The present data suggest a gradient of content sensitivity from posterior (parahippocampal) to anterior (perirhinal) MTL cortex, with MTL cortical regions differentially contributing to successful encoding based on event content.
Imaging recollection and familiarity in the medial temporal lobe: a three-component model
Multiple routes to memory: Distinct medial temporal lobe processes build item and source memories
TLDR
This work used event-related functional MRI to examine the relation between activation in distinct medial temporal lobe subregions during memory formation and the ability to later recognize an item as previously encountered and later recollect specific contextual details about the prior encounter.
Double Dissociation between Hippocampal and Parahippocampal Responses to Object–Background Context and Scene Novelty
TLDR
These findings provide compelling support for the hypothesis that rapid item–context binding is a function of the hippocampus, rather than the parahippocampal cortex, with the former acting to detect relational novelty of this nature through its function as a match–mismatch detector.
The role of recollection and familiarity in the functional differentiation of the medial temporal lobes
TLDR
There has been disagreement about whether recall/recollection is primarily mediated by the hippocampus and familiarity by the evolutionarily newer MTL cortices or whether the MTL mediates these kinds of memory in an integrated, homogeneous fashion.
Prefrontal and Medial Temporal Lobe Activity at Encoding Predicts Temporal Context Memory
TLDR
Evidence implicating the rostrolateral PFC in the representation of time-varying contextual states in a manner similar to that proposed by computational theories of temporal context memory is revealed.
Perirhinal and Parahippocampal Cortices Differentially Contribute to Later Recollection of Object- and Scene-Related Event Details
TLDR
The results strongly point to representational domain as a key factor determining the involvement of different MTLC subregions during successful episodic memory formation.
