Recollection and familiarity in amnesic mild cognitive impairment.
The findings are consistent with the knowledge of neurodegeneration occurring in AD, which is characterized, at the earliest disease stages, by a selective involvement of the entorhinal cortex.
Fractionation of memory in medial temporal lobe amnesia
Recollection and familiarity in hippocampal amnesia
Data from this study support the hypothesis of a specific role of the hippocampus in recollection processes and suggest that other components of the MTL may be more involved in the process of familiarity.
Amnesia and the hippocampus
The available evidence favours the view that the hippocampus, in conjunction with other cortical areas, is critical for the retrieval of remote episodic memories and for both recollection and familiarity anterograde memory processes.
A deficit in familiarity-driven recognition in a right-sided mediodorsal thalamic lesion patient.
A memory profile, marked by a dissociation between familiarity and recollection, fits naturally with the DPSD model and is incompatible with the idea that these kinds of memories reflect different degrees of trace strength.


Long-term retrograde amnesia… the crucial role of the hippocampus
Dissociation Between Recall and Recognition Memory Performance in an Amnesic Patient with Hippocampal Damage Following Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
It is reported here the case of an amnesic patient who suffered bilateral hippocampal damage and temporoparietal atrophy after carbon monoxide poisoning, and in a task using the process dissociation procedure, the patient's familiarity was preserved although his recollection was impaired.
Episodic memory, amnesia, and the hippocampal–anterior thalamic axis
By utilizing new information from both clinical and experimental studies with animals, the anatomy underlying anterograde amnesia has been reformulated and places critical importance on the efferents from the hippocampus via the fornix to the diencephalon.
Impaired episodic memory retrieval in a case of probable psychogenic amnesia
Three Cases of Enduring Memory Impairment after Bilateral Damage Limited to the Hippocampal Formation
The present results substantiate the idea that severity of memory impairment is dependent on locus and extent of damage within the hippocampal formation and that damage to the hippocampusal formation can cause temporally graded retrograde amnesia.
Impaired recognition memory in patients with lesions limited to the hippocampal formation.
Recognition memory impairment is a robust feature of human amnesia, even when damage is limited primarily to the hippocampus, and it is shown that recognition memory is impaired after damage limited to the hippocampal region.
Recollection and familiarity deficits in amnesia: convergence of remember-know, process dissociation, and receiver operating characteristic data.
A reanalysis of studies using the process dissociation and the remember-know procedures with a dual-process signal-detection model that incorporates response bias revealed that amnesia led to a pronounced reduction in recollection and smaller but consistent reduction in familiarity.
