Positron emission tomography measurements of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) were performed in normal volunteers during two auditory--verbal memory tasks: a subspan and supraspan task. The difference in rCBF between tasks was used to identify brain areas/systems involved in auditory--verbal long-term memory. Increases in rCBF were observed in the left and right prefrontal cortex, precuneus and the retrosplenial area of the cingulate gyrus. Decreases in blood flow were centred in the… Expand
A graded task approach to the functional mapping of brain areas implicated in auditory-verbal memory.
TLDR
Positron emission tomography measurements of regional cerebral blood flow were performed in normal volunteers during a graded auditory-verbal memory task and suggest that the areas identified are associated with limited capacity processes for encoding and retrieval. Expand
PET brain mapping study of auditory verbal supraspan memory versus visual fixation in schizophrenia
TLDR
The results suggest that remitted patients with schizophrenia demonstrate impairments of capacity-limited information processing, which may be related to metabolic dysfunction within a distributed network of brain structures, including the prefrontal and temporal cortical regions; however, dysfunction limited to the frontal cortex cannot be ruled out by the results.

Brain function during multi-trial learning in mild cognitive impairment: A PET activation study
TLDR
Different episodic memory processing in the MCI group, and a possible over-reliance on semantic processing are suggested, suggest Subtle functional changes occur in the pre-Alzheimer brain before there are marked structural or behavioural abnormalities. Expand

Neural systems that participate in working memory for faces were investigated in an experiment designed to distinguish face perception areas from working memory areas. Regional cerebral blood flowExpand

TLDR
A significant correlation between memory performance and rCBF recorded in patients with DAT during the memory task was found only in the right lateral frontal region, a region that was not hypoperfused significantly in patients. Expand
Network Analysis of Positron Emission Tomography Regional Cerebral Blood Flow Data: Ensemble Inhibition during Episodic Memory Retrieval
TLDR
It is argued that it is critical to examine the combined pattern of excitatory and inhibitory influences to fully appreciate the neural basis of episodic memory. Expand
Cerebral blood flow relationships associated with a difficult tone recognition task in trained normal volunteers.
TLDR
Changes in regional cerebral blood flow suggest that neural activity in the right frontal, superior temporal and cerebellar regions shifts back and forth in magnitude depending on whether tone recognition RT is relatively fast or slow, during a difficult, accurate assessment. Expand
Regional brain activity during working memory tasks.
TLDR
The data confirm that the lower left supramarginal gyrus and premotor area are the key regions subserving short-term verbal memory processes and suggest that the updating memory task is related to middorsolateral prefrontal activation, most probably responsible for the updating function of the central executive. Expand
Cortical networks for working memory and executive functions sustain the conscious resting state in man
TLDR
The results suggest that brain activity during conscious REST is sustained by a large scale network of heteromodal associative parietal and frontal cortical areas, that can be further hierarchically organized in an episodic working memory parieto-frontal network, driven in part by emotions. Expand
Lateralized Changes in Regional Cerebral Blood Flow during Performance of Verbal and Facial Recognition Tasks: Correlations with Performance and “Effort”
TLDR
Whereas this recognition task showed the expected lateralized increase in the mid-temporal region and not in frontal and limbic areas, lateralized activation in some of these areas was associated with better performance. Expand

Distribution of cortical neural networks involved in word comprehension and word retrieval.
TLDR
It is concluded that single word comprehension and retrieval activate very different distributed regions of cerebral cortex, with Wernicke's area the only region engaged by both processes and with participation during silent word generation of networks involved in vocalization. Expand
Left-right cortical asymmetries of regional cerebral blood flow during listening to words.
TLDR
Significant asymmetries were found in particular in the superior temporal region with the left side showing a more widespread and intense increase, averaging 29% as compared to 18% on the right side, which should be compared to the right-sided dominance during verbal stimulation reported by Roland et al. (25, 26). Expand
The anterior cingulate cortex mediates processing selection in the Stroop attentional conflict paradigm.
TLDR
Regional cerebral blood flow, an index of local neuronal activity, was measured using positron emission tomography during the performance of the classic Stroop color/word task in eight healthy right-handed subjects to provide support for the role of the anterior cingulate cortex in attentional processing through the selection and recruitment of processing centers appropriate for task execution.

Activation of the hippocampus and dentate gyrus by working-memory: a 2- deoxyglucose study of behaving rhesus monkeys
TLDR
The findings suggest that working-memory may be a common denominator among those tasks that are sensitive to hippocampal damage in monkeys, and the contribution of the amygdala to performance on memory tasks, on the other hand, appears to be independent of the specific type of memory process that is engaged.

TLDR
Inter-subject anatomical variability of several brain areas participating in language perception and production is found to be uniformly consistent, with no appreciable effect of distance from the neural periphery. Expand

PET is used to demonstrate directly the specialization of function in the normal human visual cortex, and provides direct evidence to show that, just as in the macaque monkey, different areas of the human prestriate visual cortex are specialized for different attributes of vision. Expand
