Physiological evidence indicates that several brain regions, including the medial temporal lobes and prefrontal cortex (PFC), are involved in processing events that are novel or distinctive in their immediate context. However, behavioral studies that investigate whether these regions are critical for producing stimulus novelty advantages in memory are limited. For example, evidence from an animal lesion study indicated that the PFC is involved in stimulus novelty effects, but this has not been…

The role of the frontal cortex in memory: an investigation of the Von Restorff effect
TLDR
An experimental investigation was carried out to test the relationship between the PFC-dependent factors and semantic factors associated with common and specific features of words, and a correlation was found between fluid intelligence and the Von-Restorff effect.

TLDR
The aim of this review is to present the main findings that have emerged from experiments which used the TMS technique for memory analysis and the role of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in memory process and present state-of-the-art evidence supporting a possible use of TMS in the clinic.
Contribution of Subregions of Human Frontal Cortex to Novelty Processing
TLDR
The current findings indicate that the LPFC and OFC have partly shared and partly differential contributions to the cognitive subcomponents of novelty processing.
Fractionating the neural substrates of incidental recognition memory.
TLDR
It is concluded that recognition memory substrates can be fractionated even in the absence of memory goals.

The von Restorff Effect in Amnesia: The Contribution of the Hippocampal System to Novelty-Related Memory Enhancements
TLDR
The results indicate that the human medial temporal lobes play a critical role in producing normal novelty effects in memory and are effectively eliminated in patients with extensive medial temporal lobe damage.
Contribution of human hippocampal region to novelty detection
THE ability to respond to unexpected stimuli (the 'orienting response') is a fundamental characteristic of mammalian behaviour1, but the brain mechanisms by which novelty is detected remain poorly
The central role of the prefrontal cortex in directing attention to novel events.
The physiological basis for the striking decrease of attention to novel events following frontal lobe injury is poorly understood. In this study, event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded from
Rapid Prefrontal-Hippocampal Habituation to Novel Events
TLDR
The view that prefrontal and hippocampal regions are involved in rapid automatic detection and habituation to unexpected environmental events and are key elements of the orienting response in humans is supported.

Effects of Unilateral Prefrontal Lesions on Familiarity, Recollection, and Source Memory
TLDR
It is suggested that the PFC plays a critical role in recognition memory based on familiarity as well as recollection and that left PFC regions are critical for source recollection.

Novelty assessment in the brain and long-term memory encoding
TLDR
It is proposed that the efficacy of encoding on-line information into long-term memory depends on the novelty of the information as determined by these networks, and a test of this “novelty/encoding” hypothesis is reported.
Adaptive anterior hippocampal responses to oddball stimuli
TLDR
The hippocampal response to oddballs demonstrates a second‐order novelty effect, being sensitive to the “novelty of novelty” of oddball stimuli, and provides support for a more general theory that a function of the anterior hippocampus is to register mismatches between expectation and experience.
