Recognition memory based on familiarity judgments is a form of declarative memory that has been repeatedly associated with the anterior medial temporal lobe. It has been argued that this region sustains familiarity-based recognition not only by retrieving item-specific information but also by coding for those semantic aspects of an event that support later familiarity-based recognition.
Neuroimaging findings clearly demonstrate that different forms of recognition-memory outcome can be predicted based on the success of qualitatively distinct encoding processes. Although such research has undoubtedly established a role of the medial temporal lobes in the successful encoding of information in declarative memory, it also raises many new questions: What is the exact nature of those specific encoding processes that can result in later familiarity-based recognition judgments and what is the accurate type of novel information that elicits encoding supporting responses in the anterior medial temporal lobe?
Therefore, delineating these processes in more detail is an ongoing research question, with important implications for current models of recognition memory and was the topic of the conducted behavioural, EEG and fMRI experiments that will be reported in this issue.
