Imaging episodic memory: Implications for cognitive theories and phenomena
Journal/Book: Memory. 1999; 7: 27 Church Rd, Hove BN3 2FA, East Sussex, England. Psychology Press. 585-597.
Abstract: Functional neuroimaging studies are beginning to identify neuroanatomical correlates of various cognitive functions. This paper presents results relevant to several theories and phenomena of episodic memory, including component processes of episodic retrieval, encoding specificity, inhibition, item versus source memory, encoding-retrieval overlap, and the picture-superiority effect. Overall, by revealing specific activation patterns, the results provide support for existing theoretical views and they add some unique information which may be important to consider in future attempts to develop cognitive theories of episodic memory.
