Neuroanatomical correlates of implicit and explicit memory for structurally possible and impossible visual objects.
Implicit memory refers to nonconscious retrieval of past experience demonstrated by facilitation in test performance on tasks that do not require intentional recollection of previous experiences.
Illusory memories in amnesic patients: conceptual and perceptual false recognition.
TLDR
The authors examined false recognition after exposure to lists of conceptually and perceptually related words and found that amnesics showed significantly reduced levels of false recognition.
Illusory memories: a cognitive neuroscience analysis.

TLDR
Converging evidence suggests that the study of illusory memories can provide a useful tool for delineating the brain processes and systems involved in constructive aspects of remembering.
Trusting Our Memories: Dissociating the Neural Correlates of Confidence in Veridical versus Illusory Memories
TLDR
Results indicate that confidence in true recognition is mediated primarily by a recollection-related MTL mechanism, whereas confidence in false recognition reflects mainly a familiarity-related frontoparietal mechanism, consistent with the fuzzy trace theory of false recognition.
True But Not False Memories Produce a Sensory Signature in Human Lateralized Brain Potentials
TLDR
Results indicate that studied words leave sensory signatures of study experiences that are absent for false memories, and hemifield effects emerged, including a slower reaction time for false recognition of nonstudied words whose associated lists were presented to the left hem ifield.
Neuroanatomical substrates involved in true and false memories for face
Can medial temporal lobe regions distinguish true from false? An event-related functional MRI study of veridical and illusory recognition memory
TLDR
The results suggest that activity in anterior MTL regions does not distinguish True from False, whereas activity in posterior M TL regions does.
Conscious recollection and illusory recognition: an event‐related fMRI study
TLDR
The results point to an important role of the prefrontal cortex as well as medial temporal and medial parietal regions of the brain in successful memory retrieval and conscious recollection.
Neural Correlates of True Memory, False Memory, and Deception
TLDR
It is indicated that fMRI can detect the difference in brain activity between deception and false memory despite the fact that subjects respond with “I know” to novel events in both processes.

TLDR
It is suggested that false recognition of nonstudied words preceded by numerous associates depends on the same kinds of semantic and associative information about study list words that also supports accurate recognition.

Conscious recollection and the human hippocampal formation: evidence from positron emission tomography.
TLDR
Comparisons showed that blood-flow increases in the hippocampal formation are specifically associated with the conscious recollection of studied words, whereas blood- flow increases in frontal regions are associated with efforts to retrieve target words.
Brain regions associated with acquisition and retrieval of verbal episodic memory
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.
Functional brain maps of retrieval mode and recovery of episodic information
Positron emission tomography (PET) was used to identify brain regions associated with two component processes of episodic retrieval; those related to thinking back in subjective time (retrieval mode)
The cortical localization of the lexicons. Positron emission tomography evidence.
TLDR
Positron emission tomography was used to investigate changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in neurologically normal subjects during word reading and word repetition, and it is argued that they are consistent with localization of a lexicon for spoken word recognition in the middle part of the left superior and middle temporal gyri, and a Lexicon for written word Recognition in the posterior part ofThe left middle temporal gyrus.
Distinct neural correlates of visual long-term memory for spatial location and object identity: a positron emission tomography study in humans.
TLDR
The study shows that distinct neural pathways are activated during retrieval of information about spatial location and object identity from long-term memory.

TLDR
Evidence is presented which suggests that the MTL/H module satisfies Fodorian criteria of modularity and is compared to perceptual modules in nonfrontal neocortex that mediate performance on tests of memory without awareness.
