A fundamental question about human memory is which brain structures are involved, and when, in transforming experiences into memories. This experiment sought to identify neural correlates of memory formation with the use of intracerebral electrodes implanted in the brains of patients with temporal lobe epilepsy. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded directly from the medial temporal lobe (MTL) as the patients studied single words. ERPs elicited by words subsequently recalled in a memory… Expand
Human declarative memory formation: Segregating rhinal and hippocampal contributions
TLDR
The anatomically restricted interaction between word frequency and memory formation might indicate a semantically affected operation in the parahippocampal region supporting memory formation indirectly, and the missing interaction in hippocampal recordings might suggest a direct correlate of declarative memory formation that is insensitive to item properties. Expand
Human memory formation is accompanied by rhinal–hippocampal coupling and decoupling
TLDR
Recorded depth-EEG from within the MTL of epilepsy patients performing a memorization task suggested that effective declarative memory formation is accompanied by a direct and temporarily limited cooperation between both MTL substructures. Expand
Declarative memory formation in hippocampal sclerosis: an intracranial event-related potentials study
TLDR
Intacranial event-related potentials recorded from the medial temporal lobes of nine epilepsy patients performing a word memorization task indicate a reduced availability of recruitable neural assemblies not only in the hippocampus but also in the rhinal cortex during memory formation. Expand
Phase-locking within human mediotemporal lobe predicts memory formation
TLDR
The data suggest that early mediotemporal phase adjustments constitute a relevant mechanism underlying declarative memory encoding, and mean that memory formation is related to the precise timing of EEG phases within the MTL with respect to stimulus onset. Expand
Intracranial EEG Correlates of Expectancy and Memory Formation in the Human Hippocampus and Nucleus Accumbens
TLDR
It is found that unexpected stimuli enhance an early and a late hippocampal potential, and that the late potential is associated with successful memory encoding for these stimuli, consistent with the hypothesis that activity in a loop involving the hippocampus and the nucleus accumbens promotes encoding of unexpected events. Expand
Recognition memory: What are the roles of the perirhinal cortex and hippocampus?
TLDR
This work focuses on the central issue in this dispute — the relative contributions of the hippocampus and the perirhinal cortex to recognition memory. Expand
Rhinal–hippocampal coupling during declarative memory formation: Dependence on item characteristics
TLDR
It is suggested, that broadband Rhinal-hippocampal coupling including the gamma range only occurs, when significant semantic associations are processed within rhinal cortex, as is the case for high-frequency words. Expand
Encoding of novel picture pairs activates the perirhinal cortex: An fMRI study
It is well established in nonhuman primates that the medial temporal lobe (MTL) structures, the hippocampus and the entorhinal and perirhinal cortices, are necessary for declarative memory encoding.Expand
Dissociable correlates of recollection and familiarity within the medial temporal lobes
Regions in the medial temporal lobes (MTL) have long been implicated in the formation of new memories for events, however, it is unclear whether different MTL subregions support different memoryExpand
Intracranial recordings and human memory
TLDR
High-frequency responses and coupling between different frequencies suggest that frontal cortex activity is critical to human memory processes, as well as a potential key role for the thalamus in neocortical oscillations. Expand

Human hippocampus associates information in memory.
TLDR
Neither novelty detection nor depth of processing activated the hippocampus as much as semantically associating the primarily unrelated words in memory, compelling evidence for another function of the human hippocampal formation in memory: establishing semantic associations. Expand
The medial temporal lobe memory system
TLDR
The medial temporal lobe memory system is needed to bind together the distributed storage sites in neocortex that represent a whole memory, but the role of this system is only temporary, as time passes after learning, memory stored in neoc cortex gradually becomes independent of medialporal lobe structures. Expand
Neural encoding of individual words and faces by the human hippocampus and amygdala
TLDR
It is found that some MTL neurons preferentially fired on sight of one particular word from a set of ten words used in a memory task, and others fired in response to one particular face, suggesting that the MTL contributes specific information to the cortex during the retrieval of recent memories. Expand
Hierarchical organization of cognitive memory.
TLDR
The new findings suggest that the hippocampus may be especially important for event as opposed to fact memory, with the surrounding cortical areas contributing to both. Expand
Human temporal lobe potentials in verbal learning and memory processes
TLDR
Intacranial recordings indicated that different electrophysiological responses in different temporal lobe structures were linked to memory scores from specific neuropsychological tests. Expand
Verbal novelty detection within the human hippocampus proper.
TLDR
It can be concluded that the human hippocampus proper contributes to verbal novelty detection because sclerosis of the hippocampus proper selectively reduced event-related potentials to new but not old verbal stimuli. Expand
