Figures and Tables from this paper

The effect of object processing in content-dependent source memory
The findings suggest that unitization supports source memory for both words and pictures and that the requirement of the study task interacts with the nature of stimulus content in unitized source encoding.
Distinct patterns of hippocampal activity associated with color and spatial source memory
Results indicate that different types of source memory are represented by distinct patterns of activity in the hippocampus, and activity associated with spatial memory and color memory could be classified with above-chance accuracy in a region of the right anterior hippocampus.
The effects of aging on material-independent and material-dependent neural correlates of source memory retrieval.
The results suggest that older adults' source memory impairments reflect alterations in regions making material-independent contributions to source memory retrieval, primarily the lateral PFC, but may be further impacted by changes in regions sensitive to particular materials.
Category specificity in the medial temporal lobe: A systematic review
Existing evidence for regional specialization in the MTL for three categories of visual stimuli: faces, objects, and scenes is evaluated and the need for the development of theoretical models of MTL function that can accommodate the differential patterns of specificity observed in theMTL is highlighted.
Medial temporal lobe contributions to cued retrieval of items and contexts


Medial Temporal Lobe Activity during Source Retrieval Reflects Information Type, not Memory Strength
Results showed that encoding color information as an item detail improved source recognition in amnesic patients with recollection deficits, and qualitatively different patterns of results observed in PRc and hippocampus/PHc are consistent with the idea that different MTL regions process different types of episodic information.

It was found that encoding activation in the right perirhinal cortex correlates with successful recollection of the paired object, and other MTL subregions also exhibited content-specific source encoding patterns of activation, suggesting that MTL subsequent memory effects are sensitive to stimulus category.
Making Memories without Trying: Medial Temporal Lobe Activity Associated with Incidental Memory Formation during Recognition
A novel approach to cross-participant alignment of neuroimaging data is presented that provides more precise localization and enhanced statistical power within regions such as the MTL.
fMRI correlates of retrieval orientation
Effects of study task on the neural correlates of source encoding.
The present findings add weight to the proposal that neural activity supporting successful episodic memory encoding is a reflection of both the online processing engaged by an episode as it is experienced, and the demands imposed by the later retrieval task.
The human medial temporal lobe processes online representations of complex objects
Investigating the Interaction between Spatial Perception and Working Memory in the Human Medial Temporal Lobe
It is suggested that the posterior hippocampus and parahippocampal cortex may play a critical role in processing complex spatial representations, which, in turn, may form the basis of short- and long-term mnemonic processes.
Memory retrieval and the parietal cortex: A review of evidence from a dual-process perspective
Multiple routes to memory: Distinct medial temporal lobe processes build item and source memories
This work used event-related functional MRI to examine the relation between activation in distinct medial temporal lobe subregions during memory formation and the ability to later recognize an item as previously encountered and later recollect specific contextual details about the prior encounter.
