Animal Models of Episodic Memory
TLDR
Compelling evidence for episodic memory comes from studies in which judgments of familiarity cannot produce accurate choices in memory assessments, and these approaches may be used to explore the evolution of cognition.
Episodic memory in primates
TLDR
Evidence that great apes and other primates may possess episodic‐like memory is presented and the functional significance of episodic memory in nonhuman primates is speculated on.
Events, narratives and memory
TLDR
It is argued that carefully distinguishing event memory from episodic memory can help resolve the debate, and a dual systems account is proposed and evidence for a distinction between event memory and episodi memory is provided.
Recognition without awareness in humans and its implications for animal models of episodic memory
TLDR
It is shown that a test widely considered to measure episodic memory in humans can be constructed such that it measures nonconscious (implicit) memory under certain test parameters, and that nonhuman animals may rely on implicit memory processing in many episodic-memory testing circumstances.

TLDR
The value of studying episodic-like memory in animals is the opportunity it affords to model certain kinds of neurodegenerative disease that, in humans, affect episodic memory.

Episodic and declarative memory: Role of the hippocampus
TLDR
A realignment of organization of memory is suggested such that declarative memory is defined in terms of features and properties that are common to both episodic and semantic memory, which gives greater precision to the Vargha‐Khadem et al. study.
The hippocampus and memory for orderly stimulus relations.

  • 1997
TLDR
The view that the hippocampus mediates a general declarative memory capacity in animals, as it does in humans, is strongly supported.
Memory for items and memory for relations in the procedural/declarative memory framework.
TLDR
This paper considers the nature of memory for items and ofMemory for relations among items, within the context of the procedural/declarative framework, providing the foundation necessary to analyse the basis for item-specific implicit memory phenomena.
Functional organization of the hippocampal memory system.
TLDR
The findings support the view that the cortex maintains various forms of memory representation and that hippocampal structures extend the persistence and mediate the organization of these codings.
Two functional components of the hippocampal memory system
TLDR
It is proposed that neocortical association areas maintain shortterm memories for specific items and events prior to hippocampal processing as well as providing the final repositories of long-term memory.

TLDR
The capacity for nondeclarative (nonconscious) learning can now be studied in a broad array of tasks that assess classification learning, perceptuomotor skill learning, artificial grammar learning, and prototype abstraction.
How Does the Brain Organize Memories?
TLDR
Three patients who had very specific loss of their hippocampi within the first few years of life showed a severe loss of episodic memory, but that their semantic memory was intact, and Eichenbaum explains what these results mean for the classification of different types of memory.
Episodic-like memory during cache recovery by scrub jays
TLDR
It is shown that scrub jays remember ‘when’ food items are stored by allowing them to recover perishable ‘wax worms’ (wax-moth larvae) and non-perishable peanuts which they had previously cached in visuospatially distinct sites.
Implicit memory: a selective review.
The investigation of human mcmory has undergone a major transformation during the past decade, characterized by Richardson-Klavehn & Bjork (1988) as a "revolution in the way that we measure and
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.
