Historically, psychologists and neuroscientists have distinguished between processes supporting memory for events across retention delays of several seconds (short-term memory, STM), and those supporting memory for events across longer retention delays of minutes or more (long-term memory, LTM). Dissociations reported in some neuropsychological studies have contributed to a popular view that there must be neurally distinct memory stores that differentially support STM and LTM.

Dissociable contributions of prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus to short-term memory: Evidence for a 3-state model of memory
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the associative properties of the hippocampus serve to inter-relate information actively maintained in STM which not only promotes strong STM, but also lays the foundations for subsequent LTM. Expand
The mind and brain of short-term memory.
TLDR
A conceptual model tracing the representation of a single item through a short-term memory task is described, describing the biological mechanisms that might support psychological processes on a moment-by-moment basis as an item is encoded, maintained over a delay with some forgetting, and ultimately retrieved. Expand
Memory integration in amnesia: Prior knowledge supports verbal short-term memory
TLDR
Results demonstrate that immediate verbal recall in amnesia can benefit from two distinct types of semantic support, verbal and visuospatial, and that the hippocampus is not critical for leveraging stored semantic knowledge to improve memory performance. Expand
False memories seconds later: the rapid and compelling onset of illusory recognition.
TLDR
The results indicate that compelling false memory illusions can be rapidly instantiated and that, consistent with unitary models of memory, they originate from processes that are not specific to LTM tasks. Expand
Expectations of Task Demands Dissociate Working Memory and Long-Term Memory Systems.
TLDR
Results indicate that distinct memory systems are recruited based on anticipated demands of a memory task, and MTL involvement underlies the observed dissociation between WM and LTM performance. Expand
Challenging the classical distinction between long-term and short-term memory: reconsidering the role of the hippocampus
The hippocampus and surrounding medial temporal lobe structures have long been held to be critical for long-term declarative memory, but not for short-term or working memory. In fact, the notion thatExpand
About the Distinction between Working Memory and Short-Term Memory
TLDR
There is a crucial role for the tasks that are used to measure STM or WM and for the cognitive load reflected by factors like attention and processing speed that may covary between and within these tasks. Expand
Multiple Memory Systems?: Serial Position Dependent False Memory Effects
TLDR
The results suggest that semantic processes operate in S/LTM and differ in prominence depending on interference, and Converging evidence that the primacy and recency portions of the serial position curve tap distinct shortand long term memory systems is found. Expand
Beyond Long-Term Declarative Memory: Evaluating Hippocampal Contributions to Unconscious Memory Expression, Perception, and Short-Term Retention
Contributions made by the hippocampus to long-term declarative memory are well established, but recent work compels reconsideration of the perspective that performance in other cognitive domains isExpand
Multiple neural states of representation in short-term memory? It’s a matter of attention
TLDR
This paper considers several theoretical models that postulate, based on considerable behavioral evidence, that information in STM can exist in multiple representational states, and highlights the inferential advantage of multivariate, information-based analyses of neuroimaging data (fMRI and electroencephalography (EEG) over conventional activation-based analysis approaches.

Short-term memory and sentence processing: Evidence from neuropsychology
TLDR
Findings from a brain-damaged patient, E.A., suggest that the phonological storage capacity that is critical to memory span plays only a limited role in language processing, specifically in the maintenance and learning of phonological forms. Expand
Independent Functioning of Verbal Memory Stores: A Neuropsychological Study
TLDR
Five experiments are described concerning verbal short-term memory performance of a patient who has a very markedly reduced verbal span, indicating that he has a greatly reduced short- term memory capacity and showing that this cannot be attributed to a retrieval failure. Expand
Processing and short-term retention of relational information in amnesia
In a recent eye-movement study [Psychol. Sci. 11 (2000) 454], amnesic patients failed selectively to exhibit long-term effects of memory for the relations among the constituent elements of scenes.Expand
A neuropsychological argument for a processing view of memory
Abstract This study examined the case of a brain-damaged patient, I.R., who exhibits the pattern of performance typical of persons with a selective short-term memory deficit. Part 1 reveals aExpand
Working Memory Maintenance Contributes to Long-term Memory Formation: Neural and Behavioral Evidence
TLDR
It is demonstrated that processing during the initial stage of WM maintenance directly contributes to successful LTM formation, and that this effect is mediated by a network that includes the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus. Expand
Dissociating familiarity from recollection in human recognition memory: Different rates of forgetting over short retention intervals
TLDR
The present results indicate that item familiarity decreases more rapidly than recollection over short retention intervals, in agreement with the results from nonhuman species. Expand
The demise of short-term memory revisited: empirical and computational investigations of recency effects.
TLDR
It is suggested that 2 memory components are needed to account for the recency effects: an episodic contextual system with changing context and an activation-based short-term memory buffer that drives the encoding of item-context associations. Expand
Parallel neuronal mechanisms for short-term memory.
TLDR
Recordings were made from neurons in the inferior temporal cortex of monkeys while the monkeys held a sample picture "in mind" and signaled when it was repeated in a sequence of pictures, ignoring other stimulus repetitions. Expand
Working memory retention systems: a state of activated long-term memory.
High temporal resolution event-related brain potential and electroencephalographic coherence studies of the neural substrate of short-term storage in working memory indicate that the sustainedExpand
Prefrontal activity associated with working memory and episodic long-term memory
TLDR
FMRI patterns of prefrontal activity associated with encoding and recognition during WM and LTM tasks performed by the same subjects support the view that the same prefrontal regions implement reflective processes that support both WM andLTM. Expand
