The posterior medial parietal cortex and the left prefrontal cortex have both been implicated in the recollection of past episodes. In order to clarify their functional significance, we performed this functional magnetic resonance imaging study, which employed event-related source memory and item recognition retrieval of words paired with corresponding imagined or viewed pictures. Our results suggest that episodic source memory is related to a functional network including the posterior… Expand
The role of precuneus and left inferior frontal cortex during source memory episodic retrieval
TLDR
This study examines the role of posterior precuneal and left prefrontal activation during episodic source memory retrieval using a similar source memory paradigm but with longer latency between encoding and retrieval to suggest that both the precuneus and the left inferior PFC are important for regeneration of rich episodic contextual associations. Expand
Lateral posterior parietal activity during source memory judgments of perceived and imagined events
TLDR
The results demonstrated that the left lateral posterior parietal cortex and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex were significantly more active during source attributions of perceived compared to imagined events. Expand
Chapter 3.7 The role of the precuneus in episodic memory
Abstract Functional neuroimaging studies of episodic memory retrieval have consistently revealed a range of memory-related influences on activation in the posteromedial parietal cortex, that is, theExpand
Ongoing egocentric spatial processing during learning of non-spatial information results in temporal-parietal activity during retrieval
TLDR
The temporo-parietal network is confirmed to be crucial in episodic memory in healthy participants and could be linked to the egocentric-updated process. Expand
Going Their Separate Ways: Dissociation of Hippocampal and Dorsolateral Prefrontal Activation during Episodic Retrieval and Post-retrieval Processing
TLDR
It is demonstrated that frontal and hippocampal activity are dissociated during difficult episodic retrieval tasks and reveal important considerations for interpreting hippocampusal activity associated with successful episodic memory retrieval. Expand
TMS evidence for a selective role of the precuneus in source memory retrieval
TLDR
Continuous theta burst stimulation (cTBS) over the precuneus, but not over the PPC or the vertex, induced a selective decrease in source memory errors, indicating an improvement in context retrieval, suggesting a direct implication of the precunes in successful context-dependent retrieval. Expand
Common fronto-parietal activity in attention, memory, and consciousness: Shared demands on integration?
TLDR
The degree of anatomical overlap among activation patterns associated with fronto-parietal activity in attention, working memory, episodic memory retrieval, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and bilateral parietal cortex was assessed. Expand
Content-specificity of the neural correlates of recollection
TLDR
The current findings support the cortical reinstatement hypothesis of episodic retrieval by demonstrating a regional double-dissociation within left fusiform cortex. Expand
Overlap between the Neural Correlates of Cued Recall and Source Memory: Evidence for a Generic Recollection Network?
TLDR
Word-stems eliciting successful recall were associated with enhanced activity in a variety of cortical regions, including bilateral parietal, posterior midline, and parahippocampal cortex, and activity in these regions was enhanced when recall was accompanied by successful rather than unsuccessful source retrieval. Expand
Precuneus is involved in allocentric spatial location encoding and recognition
TLDR
This is the first study that directly compared human brain activation patterns associated with allocentric encoding and retrieval of spatial locations in virtual 3D and found regions in the precuneus bilaterally activated by both processes. Expand

Right prefrontal cortex and episodic memory retrieval: a functional MRI test of the monitoring hypothesis.
TLDR
This functional MRI study of 12 healthy volunteers tested the hypothesis that one role of the right prefrontal cortex is to monitor the information retrieved from episodic memory in order to make an appropriate response. Expand
Left prefrontal activation during episodic remembering: an event‐related fMRI study
TLDR
It is suggested that right PFC subserves relatively simple, heuristic, cognitive processes and that left PFC is recruited for more reflectively demanding, systematic, processes. Expand

TLDR
The results provide clear evidence that episodic memory involves a network of specific prefrontal and posterior structures which can be fractionated into different component processes. Expand

TLDR
It appears that there is no single cortical site or circuit responsible for episodic encoding, and results of retrieval studies indicate that successful recollection of episodic information is associated with activation of lateral parietal cortex, along with more variable patterns of activity in dorsolateral and anterior prefrontal cortex. Expand
The role of prefrontal cortex during tests of episodic memory
TLDR
The `cortical asymmetry of reflective activity' (CARA) hypothesis summarizes available findings and suggests directions for future research. Expand
Learning related modulation of functional retrieval networks in man.
TLDR
It appears necessary to develop elaborated and explicit computational models for prefrontal and medial temporal functions in order to derive detailed empirical predictions, and in combination with an efficient use and development of functional neuroimaging approaches, to further the understanding of the processing significance of these regions in memory.

The role of the parahippocampal gyrus in source memory for external and internal events
TLDR
The traces of the perceived external events and the imagined internal events were investigated in the established paradigm of reality monitoring using event-related fMRI and it was suggested that these traces are used to distinguish what is seen from what is thought during reality monitoring.

Functional Anatomic Studies of Memory Retrieval for Auditory Words and Visual Pictures
TLDR
Findings suggest a pathway that is commonly used during the episodic retrieval of picture and word stimuli under these conditions, and many areas in this pathway overlap with areas previously activated by a different set of retrieval tasks using stem-cued recall, demonstrating their generality.

Left Anterior Prefrontal Activation Increases with Demands to Recall Specific Perceptual Information
TLDR
The results show that left anterior prefrontal cortex is engaged during the monitoring and evaluation of specific memory characteristics at retrieval-a process critical for accurate episodic remembering. Expand

TLDR
The findings indicate that a key function of left dorsolateral PFC at encoding relates specifically to the use of executive processes necessary for the creation of an organizational structure. Expand
