Perceptual judgments can be based on two kinds of information: state-based perception of specific, detailed visual information, or strength-based perception of global or relational information. State-based perception is discrete in the sense that it either occurs or fails, whereas strength-based perception is continuously graded from weak to strong. The functional characteristics of these types of perception have been examined in some detail, but whether state- and strength-based perception are… 
Neurocomputational account of memory and perception: Thresholded and graded signals in the hippocampus
TLDR
The hippocampal computations required for high‐level perceptual discrimination are congruous with current neurocomputational models that account for recognition memory, and fit neatly into a broader description of the role of the hippocampus for the processing of complex relational information.
Neurocognitive networks in higher-level visual perception
TLDR
These experiments aim to investigate the functional and structural connections that support the category-sensitive contributions of the perirhinal cortex and hippocampus to higher-level visual perception and demonstrate that inter-individual variation in the structural properties of white matter pathways providing inputs/outputs to the periregional cortex or hippocampus is an important factor underpinning the contributions of these regions to successful higher- level perceptions.
Behavioral and neurocomputational investigations of human recognition memory and cognition
TLDR
The research presented for this thesis combines behavioral and computational methodologies to investigate aspects of recognition memory and related cognitive domains that have to date been poorly understood.
How the brain controls hand actions: TMS, fMRI and behavioural studies
TLDR
A detailed understanding is provided of how the dorsal and the ventral streams interact in tool processing and a more sophisticated view of the distributed representations across the two streams is proposed.
Early Visual Processing and Perception Processes in Object Discrimination Learning
TLDR
Interestingly, the overall discrimination learning was similar for brief and long stimuli, suggesting that early stages of visual processing are sufficient for ODL, and evidence on the modulation of the perception and recognition memory processes during discrimination practice and its relationship with ODL and perceptual expertise acquisition is provided.
Young and Older Adults Benefit From Sleep, but Not From Active Wakefulness for Memory Consolidation of What-Where-When Naturalistic Events
TLDR
The benefit of sleep is evidences on long-term feature binding, which is one of the core characteristics of EM, and its effectiveness in normal aging, however, further research should investigate whether this benefit is specific to sleep or more generally results from the effect of a post-learning period of reduced interference, which could also concern quiet wakefulness.
Beyond Long-Term Declarative Memory: Evaluating Hippocampal Contributions to Unconscious Memory Expression, Perception, and Short-Term Retention
TLDR
This chapter reviews literature that points to a role for the hippocampus in three additional domains—namely, perception, short-term or working memory, and unconscious expressions of memory—and suggests that the reach of the hippocampus extends well beyond long-term declarative memory.
Change detection on a hunch: Pre-attentive vision allows “sensing” of unique feature changes
TLDR
Findings suggest that pre-attentive registration of a change on a feature map can give rise to a conscious experience even when feature binding has failed: that something has changed without knowing what or where.

Bridging Consciousness and Cognition in Memory and Perception: Evidence for Both State and Strength Processes
TLDR
The apparent incompatibility between subjective experience and theories of cognition can be understood within a unified state-strength framework that links consciousness to cognition across the domains of perception and memory.

TLDR
The hippocampal computations required for high‐level perceptual discrimination are congruous with current neurocomputational models that account for recognition memory, and fit neatly into a broader description of the role of the hippocampus for the processing of complex relational information.
A neuronal network model linking subjective reports and objective physiological data during conscious perception
TLDR
A neuronal network model is described that proposes that the step of conscious perception is related to the entry of processed visual stimuli into a global brain state that links distant areas including the prefrontal cortex through reciprocal connections, and thus makes perceptual information reportable by multiple means.

TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging is used to investigate the neural mechanisms of task‐dependent modulation of uncertainty in the human brain during perceptual judgements and offers insights into the mechanism of information processing during perceptual decision‐making.
The Role of Frontal and Parietal Brain Areas in Bistable Perception
TLDR
The results are consistent with the view that at least a component of rFPC activation during bistable perception reflects a response to perceptual transitions, both real and yoked, rather than their cause.
Dissociating the Neural Mechanisms of Visual Attention in Change Detection Using Functional MRI
TLDR
The results suggest that studies of change blindness can inform understanding of more general attentional processing, and that detection of change, when transient visual cues are not present, requires activation of extrastriate visual regions and frontal regions responsible for eye movements.
