The hippocampus reevaluated in unconscious learning and memory: at a tipping point?
TLDR
It is concluded that a tipping point has been reached, and that while conscious recollection depends critically on hippocampal integrity, the reach of the hippocampus extends to unconscious aspects of memory performance when relational memory processing and representation are required.
The porous boundaries between explicit and implicit memory: behavioral and neural evidence
TLDR
Evidence indicating that implicit and explicit retrieval of relational information may rely on a common neural mechanism is examined, indicating that, under certain circumstances, there may be an important and influential relationship between conscious and nonconscious expressions of memory.
Effects of age on implicit memory : implications for single and multiple-systems theories
Explicit memory declines with age, but research suggests that implicit memory may be preserved. For example, recognition memory is typically weaker in healthy older relative to young adults while
Aging and implicit learning: explorations in contextual cuing.
TLDR
It is reported that healthy older adults showed learning impairments in contextual cuing when compared with younger adults, and the display properties in the task were altered to artificially increase younger adults' response times to match those of older adults and to produce faster responses in older participants.
Brain activity patterns underlying memory confidence
TLDR
Insight into brain activity that underlies memory confidence is important for the understanding of brain–behaviour relations and memory‐guided decision making.
Priming Children’s Use of Intentions in Moral Judgement with Metacognitive Training
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a metacognitive training could induce an important shift in children’s moral abilities, showing that only children who were explicitly instructed to “not focus too much” on the consequences of accidental harm, preferentially weighted the agents’ intentions in their moral judgments.
Focusing on symptoms rather than diagnoses in brain dysfunction: Conscious and nonconscious expression in impulsiveness and decision-making
TLDR
Cognitive- affective characterizations illustrate individuals’ choice behaviour in appraisals of situations, events and proclivities essentially of distal perspective provide the proximal realities of symptoms and syndromes with underlying dysfunctionality of brain regions, circuits and molecular mechanisms.

The effect of midazolam on visual search: Implications for understanding amnesia.
TLDR
The findings support the contention that anterograde amnesia affects learning that depends on building novel associations in memory and that this deficit does not hinge upon accessibility to consciousness.
Memory deficits for implicit contextual information in amnesic subjects with hippocampal damage
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the human medial temporal memory system is important for learning contextual information, which requires the binding of multiple cues, which could be classified as implicit.
The Effect of Midazolam on Implicit Memory Tests
TLDR
The results of an experiment using free recall, fragment completion and perceptual identification tests suggest that midazolam diminishes memory in implicit and explicit memory tests, although the diminution is proportionally larger in explicit memory.
Amnesia is a Deficit in Relational Memory
TLDR
Amnesic patients with severe memory impairment failed to show any demonstrable memory for relations among the constituent elements of scenes, suggesting that amnesia involves a fundamental deficit in relational (declarative) memory processing.
Memory, amnesia, and the hippocampal system
TLDR
A cognitive neuroscience theory of memory is offered that accounts for the nature of memory impairment exhibited in human amnesia and animal models of amnesia, that specifies the functional role played by the hippocampal system in memory, and that provides further understanding of the componential structure of memory.
Perceptual learning, awareness, and the hippocampus
TLDR
The available data suggest that damage limited to the hippocampal formation does not impair nonconscious (nondeclarative) memory, and do not contradict the idea that hippocampus‐dependent memory is accessible to conscious recollection.
Priming and human memory systems.
TLDR
Evidence is converging for the proposition that priming is an expression of a perceptual representation system that operates at a pre-semantic level; it emerges early in development, and access to it lacks the kind of flexibility characteristic of other cognitive memory systems.
The medial temporal lobe memory system
TLDR
The medial temporal lobe memory system is needed to bind together the distributed storage sites in neocortex that represent a whole memory, but the role of this system is only temporary, as time passes after learning, memory stored in neoc cortex gradually becomes independent of medialporal lobe structures.

TLDR
These experiments indicate that the learning and memory of spatial context in the contextual cuing task are indeed implicit, and have implications for understanding the neural substrate of spatial contextual learning, which may depend on an intact medial temporal lobe system that includes the hippocampus.
From Conditioning to Conscious Recollection
TLDR
A primary goal of this work is to relate the nuerobiological properties of dedicated and elaborate systems to their neuropsychological counterparts and, in do doing, account for the phenomenology of memory, from conditioning to conscious recollection.
