Episodic encoding is the first step in the formation of a memory trace. The relation between type of stimulus material and regional brain activation is not fully understood. We measured brain activation using fMRI in 12 healthy subjects during two experiments, word and face encoding. A widespread network of common activations in both tasks was present in the bilateral frontal (BA44/45), occipital (BA17/18/19) and fusiform gyri (BA37) as well as the right hippocampal formation (BA30). A region… CONTINUE READING
