Recognition memory is better for novel or distinctive items than for non-novel items. However, it is not known whether these effects reflect changes in recollection or in familiarity-based recognition judgments. Some previous results have indicated that recollection should be more sensitive to novelty than to familiarity, whereas other results have suggested the opposite. We used a von Restorff paradigm in which a small proportion of studied items were made novel by presenting them in a color… 
Revisiting the role of recollection in item versus forced-choice recognition memory
TLDR
Using word frequency to manipulate stimulus characteristics, the present study demonstrated that the contributions of recollection to item versus forced-choice tests is variable, constraining any uniform claim about the degree to which recollection supports responding in item versus Forced Choice tests.
Distinctiveness Benefits Novelty (and Not Familiarity), but Only Up to a Limit: The Prior Knowledge Perspective
TLDR
It is demonstrated that conceptual novelty, an unfamiliar combination of familiar constituents, is sensitive to its experimental proportions, which implies that novel and familiar items are processed via partially distinct mechanisms, with (at least some facets of) novelty not providing a mnemonic advantage over familiarity.
Effects of multiple study-test repetition on the neural correlates of recognition memory: ERPs dissociate remembering and knowing.
TLDR
Increases in familiarity and conceptual processing of symbols did not modulate the frontal EM effect, suggesting that it reflects neither familiarity nor conceptual priming, and support dual-process proposals that familiarity- and recollection-based processes are distinct.
Effect of Study Context on Item Recollection
TLDR
Results suggest that recollection benefits when visual context information high in meaningful content accompanies study words and that this benefit is not related to the uniqueness of the context.
The Role of Recollection and Familiarity in the Context Variability Mirror Effect
TLDR
One interpretation of the results suggests that low context variability evokes more specific and, perhaps, idiosyncratic recollective associations during learning and that these associations support better recognition in the hit rates.
The effects of encoding instruction and opportunity on the recollection of behaviourally relevant events
TLDR
Attending to behaviourally relevant targets appears to facilitate both intentional and incidental memory for the background item and the context in which it occurred, boosting subsequent recollection as well as familiarity.
Recollection and familiarity: Examining controversial assumptions and new directions
TLDR
A simple quantitative model of recognition memory (i.e., the dual‐process signal detection model) is described that has been useful in integrating findings from a broad range of cognitive studies, and that is now being applied in a growing number of neuroscientific investigations of memory.
A contextual interference account of distinctiveness effects in recognition
TLDR
The data suggest that encoding cues that suffer from contextual interference negatively affect retrieval and do so by hindering recollection-based processing.

TLDR
Whereas the effects of secondary distinctiveness in earlier studies were found to be redundant with the ABE, the current study demonstrated that items characterized by primary distinctiveness enhanced memory performance independently of the ABE.
Beneficial effects of verbalization and visual distinctiveness on remembering and knowing faces
TLDR
It is argued that verbalization and visual distinctiveness independently benefit face recognition, and the role of recollective and familiarity-based processes in recognition is discussed in terms of the nature of verbalization.

TLDR
An alternate framework that emphasizes a distinctiveness-fluency processing distinction is proposed to account for these findings because they cannot easily be accommodated within the existing account of differences in conceptual and perceptual processing for the 2 categories of recollective experience: Remembering and Knowing.

TLDR
The convergence observed across the 3 measurement procedures shows that the 3 procedures tap similar underlying processes and that recollection and familiarity differ in terms of conscious awareness, intentional control, and the manner in which they contribute to the shape of response confidence ROCs.
Attention and recollective experience in recognition memory
TLDR
Findings are interpreted as providing further support for the idea that recognition memory entails two distinct components, one based on associative and contextual information, the other based on a “traceless” awareness of familiarity.
Functional aspects of recollective experience
The functional relationship between recognition memory and conscious awareness was examined in two experiments in which subjects indicated when recognizing a word whether or not they could

TLDR
The results support an interaction between the perirhinal and frontal cortices in the processing of certain kinds of novel information that support visual object recognition memory.
The effects of conceptual salience and perceptual distinctiveness on conscious recollection
Two experiments were conducted to examine the hypothesis that recollective experience is influenced by the manipulation of salient or distinctive dimensions of the encoded stimuli (Rajaram, 1996). In

TLDR
An appeal is made for a different conceptualization of distinctiveness effects, one that treats distinctiveness as a discriminative process in memory that requires processing of both similarities and differences among items.
