Figures from this paper

The effects of priming on frontal-temporal communication
TLDR
It is suggested that object repetition results in enhanced interactions between brain regions, which facilitates performance and reduces processing demands on the regions involved.
Implicit memory and priming
Repetition priming influences distinct brain systems: evidence from task-evoked data and resting-state correlations.
TLDR
A repetition priming functional magnetic resonance imaging paradigm that directly contrasted the effects of stimulus and decision changes to identify the underlying brain systems was used to explain the long-known dissociation between perceptual and conceptual components of priming.
Examining the relationship between behavioral repetition priming and fMRI repetition suppression
TLDR
Repetition suppression was found in visual perceptual and frontal phonological regions involved at both study and test, supporting a “component process” view that repetition suppression and priming can occur at a perceptual level with limited conceptual or top-down processes involved.
Neural Correlates of Repetition Priming: A Coordinate-Based Meta-Analysis of fMRI Studies
TLDR
The results show that repetition priming was mainly associated with RS in left inferior frontal gyrus and fusiform gyrus, and question the simple distinction between conceptual and perceptual priming, and suggest consideration of other factors such as stimulus-response bindings.
Neural Priming in Human Frontal Cortex: Multiple Forms of Learning Reduce Demands on the Prefrontal Executive System
TLDR
Three distinct patterns of neural priming were identified in lateral frontal cortex, indicating that frontal computational demands are reduced by three forms of learning: cortical tuning of stimulus-specific representations, retrieval of learned stimulus-decision mappings, and retrieval of learning stimulus-response mappings.
fMRI evidence for dissociation between priming and conscious recognition.
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) showed separate neural activation to perceptual repetition priming and perceptual recognition of real and nonsense objects, both in terms of the brain regions involved and in the direction of repeated-novel activations.
The effects of priming on frontal-temporal
TLDR
These findings suggest that object repetition results in enhanced interactions between brain regions, which facilitates performance and reduces processing demands on the regions involved.
An attention account of neural priming
TLDR
The hypothesis that priming-related increases in visual cortical activity for repeated unfamiliar items may, in part, reflect attentional allocation is supported.
On the relationship between persistent delay activity, repetition enhancement and priming
TLDR
It is argued that repetition enhancement constitutes a more viable candidate for a putative neuronal substrate of priming, and a minimal framework that links together, mechanistically and functionally, repetition suppression, stimulus-selective delay activity and repetition enhancement is proposed.

Reductions in neural activity underlie behavioral components of repetition priming
Repetition priming is a nonconscious form of memory that is accompanied by reductions in neural activity when an experience is repeated. To date, however, there is no direct evidence that these
Evidence for Neural Effects of Repetition that Directly Correlate with Behavioral Priming
TLDR
The finding of a quantitative relation between neural and behavioral effects in frontal regions suggests that repetition reduces frontally mediated processing in a manner that ultimately facilitates behavior.
Properties and mechanisms of perceptual priming
Neuroimaging evidence for dissociable forms of repetition priming.
TLDR
This study used event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate whether this repetition-related response is sensitive to stimulus familiarity and exhibited an attenuated response to the repetition of familiar stimuli, both faces and symbols, but exhibited an enhanced response tothe repetition of unfamiliar stimuli.

Specificity of priming: a cognitive neuroscience perspective
TLDR
Cognitive neuroscience analyses provide evidence for three types of specificity: stimulus, associative and response, and a theoretical perspective is suggested to help in guiding future research.
Neuroanatomical Dissociation of Encoding Processes Related to Priming and Explicit Memory
TLDR
It is argued that neural measurements at encoding, and not just at retrieval, will be critical in resolving the debate about the neural mechanisms of learning that underlie priming, and it is tentatively suggested that this sharpened responding at encoding may set the stage for increased neural processing efficiency at retrieval.
