The ability to remember one's past depends on neural processing set in motion at the moment each event is experienced. Memory formation can be observed by segregating neural responses according to whether or not each event is recalled or recognized on a subsequent memory test. Subsequent memory analyses have been performed with various neural measures, including brain potentials extracted from intracranial and extracranial electroencephalographic recordings, and hemodynamic responses from… Expand
Neural Substrates of Remembering – Electroencephalographic Studies
A comprehensive understanding of human memory requires both cognitive and neural descriptions of memory processes along with a conception of how memory processing drives behavioral responses andExpand

Remembering the Past
Our ability to remember past events requires efficient encoding and successful “re-collection” of event features, such as the time, place, people, thoughts, and feelings associated with a pastExpand
Electrical Signals of Memory and of the Awareness of Remembering
Learning factual information and accurately remembering specific experiences from the past are central to human intellectual and social life. These extraordinary abilities require computations onExpand
Brain substrates of implicit and explicit memory: The importance of concurrently acquired neural signals of both memory types
TLDR
The strategies described provide a methodological framework for achieving valid assessments of memory processing, and the findings support an emerging conceptualization of the distinct neurocognitive events responsible for implicit and explicit memory. Expand
Core episodic encoding and retrieval processes revealed by dynamics of neural activity
The capacity to remember the past is dependent on neural processing that occurs not only when an event is experienced but also when it becomes reinstated into awareness at a later point in time.Expand
Memory modification in the brain: Computational and experimental investigations
Any aspect of cognition that is concerned with learning faces the same basic question: when are old memories modified, and when are new memories formed? For example, since Pavlov’s first studies ofExpand
Successful memory formation is driven by contextual encoding in the core memory network
TLDR
High frequency activity in left prefrontal cortex, left temporal cortex and hippocampus increased during the encoding of subsequently recalled items, suggesting that associative processes linking items to their spatiotemporal context underlie the traditionally observed subsequent memory effect and support successful memory formation. Expand
Memory search and the neural representation of context
TLDR
A framework in which context is maintained and updated in prefrontal cortex, and is associated with item information through hippocampal projections is proposed, which is broadly consistent with neurobiological studies of temporal integration and with studies of memory deficits in individuals with prefrontal damage. Expand
Survival processing modulates the neurocognitive mechanisms of episodic encoding
TLDR
These findings suggest that survival processing leads to a shift away from lower level encoding processes, which are sensitive to motivation and stimulus salience and which were evident in the control scenario, to more active and elaborative forms of encoding. Expand

Building memories: remembering and forgetting of verbal experiences as predicted by brain activity.
TLDR
Findings provide direct evidence that left prefrontal and temporal regions jointly promote memory formation for verbalizable events. Expand
Making memories: brain activity that predicts how well visual experience will be remembered.
TLDR
Event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to identify specific brain activations that differentiated between visual experiences that were later remembered well, remembered less well, or forgotten. Expand
ERPs predictive of subsequent recall and recognition performance
TLDR
Electrophysiological differences found in event-related brain potentials elicited in response to the original presentation of each word were found to differ as a function of later memory performance. Expand
Real-time tracking of memory formation in the human rhinal cortex and hippocampus.
TLDR
It is suggested that declarative memory formation is dissociable into subprocesses and sequentially organized within the MTL, as well as within the rhinal cortex and the hippocampus. Expand
When more means less neural activity related to unsuccessful memory encoding
TLDR
In two experiments that employed the same incidental learning task, activity in an overlapping set of cortical regions (posterior cingulate, inferior and medial parietal, and dorsolateral prefrontal) was associated with failure on a subsequent memory test. Expand
When encoding yields remembering: insights from event-related neuroimaging.
TLDR
It is hoped that the integration of findings from ERP studies, which offer higher temporal resolution, with those from event-related fMRI studies, who offer higher spatial resolution, will shed new light on when and why encoding yields subsequent remembering. Expand
Neural events that underlie remembering something that never happened
TLDR
The results implicate visual imagery in the generation of false memories and provide neural correlates of processing differences between true and false memories. Expand

Neurophysiological Manifestations of Recollective Experience during Recognition Memory Judgments
TLDR
To examine the neurophysiological concomitants of these different types of internal experience, event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded while subjects engaged in a modified recognition memory procedure that required them to describe their subjective response during each testtrial. Expand
