Electrophysiological correlates of familiarity in recognition memory and exclusion tasks
Publication year: 2006

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
ERPs were acquired in the test phases of three memory experiments, where three classes of word were presented. These were: (i) words encountered in a prior study phase (studied words), (ii) words presented at test for the first time (new words), and (iii) new words repeated after a lag of 7-9 intervening words (repeated test words). In experiments 1 and 2, participants were asked to respond on one key to studied words and on another to new as well as to repeated test words. In experiment 3, a binary response was again required, but in this case repeated test and studied words were assigned to the same key. In each experiment, the principal focus for analysis was on the differences between the ERPs at mid-frontal electrode locations from 300 to 500 ms post-stimulus that were associated with incorrect responses to studied words (misses) and correct responses to new words. It has been proposed that relatively greater positivity for studied than for new words at this locus reflects the greater familiarity of studied than of unstudied words. ERPs elicited by misses were reliably more positive-going than those elicited by correct rejections in experiments 1 and 2 only. These findings support the link between this modulation of the electrical record and familiarity in so far as the designs of the experiments lead to the prediction that the average level of familiarity associated with misses should be higher in the first two experiments than in the third. In combination with findings in other studies, these data support dual-process accounts of recognition memory.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The objective of this experiment was to investigate changes in neural activity over the course of a memory retrieval task. The assumption was that the demands placed on monitoring the contents of retrieval would increase as the numbers of stimuli to which memory judgments were required also increased. We tested this by measuring event-related potentials (ERPs) during the test phase of a retrieval task, because ERPs index processes related to retrieval monitoring.
Participants (N = 16) first studied words in one of two colours. Studied and unstudied (new) words were then presented in a neutral colour. ERPs were acquired while people made old/new and then study colour judgments to the test words. The differences between ERPs associated with correct judgments to new words (correct rejections) and correct colour judgments to old words were compared for the first and the second halves of the retrieval task. The rationale for this first/second half separation was that the demands on monitoring would increase during the task and would be revealed by differences between ERP indices of retrieval monitoring over the course of the task.
The critical ERP indices differed qualitatively from approximately 1000ms post-stimulus, indicating that not entirely the same retrieval processes were operating in support of accurate memory judgments over the retrieval task. In combination with the absence of evidence for this change in another experiment where auditory rather than visual contexts were used at study, these findings suggest the outcome is not simply an effect of time on task. It is possible that the effects specific to the second half of the retrieval task index additional processes engaged as the demands placed on distinguishing between similar memory representations increase. Irrespective of the accuracy of this account, however, the findings indicate there are circumstances where making functional inferences about patterns of neural activity in brain imaging experiments based on data averaged over the entirety of retrieval tasks might lead to inaccurate functional characterisations.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
This research project investigated how semantic information influences memories of episodic events. Focussing on the meaning of events at the time of encoding is a good way of making them more memorable. The central aim of this project was to elucidate which memory processes are particularly sensitive to certain kinds of semantic manipulations. We assessed this question by investigating how established event-related potential (ERP) indices of Familiarity (providing a sense of previous encounter, indexed by the early frontal old/new effect, occuring at 300-500ms post stimulus) and Recollection (retrieval of detailed contextual information, indexed by a later parietal old/new effect, occuring at 500-800ms post stimulus) varied according to semantic relations between stimuli and type of semantic encoding subjects employed to process stimuli. Experiment 1 revealed that stimulus-driven semantic manipulations have a particularly strong impact on episodic retrieval via familiarity-driven processes. Reliable differences in ERP indices occurred at anterior scalp locations from 300-500ms (early frontal old/new effect) for related vs. unrelated items. Experiment 2 was able to investigate the basis of this impact in more detail and demonstrated that the familiarity-driven memory effect is linked to semantic feature overlaps between stimuli, but less so to the kind of semantic processing employed. Out data revealed modulations in early frontal old/new effects that were linked to changes in semantic relatedness between stimuli. The level of strategic semantic processing employed at encoding, however, did not modulate early frontal old/new effects. Overall these findings allow us to establish a more detailed account by which semantic information is able to influence episodic retrieval. Our data suggest that stimulus driven semantic processes modulate familiarity based memory judgements. These findings have important implication for how semantic information can be used to strucutre learning environments to become more memorable.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Episodic and semantic memories interact dynamically, but how this occurs is largely unknown. Certain kinds of semantic encoding operations result primarily in changes to familiarity-based episodic memory judgments. Others, meanwhile, result primarily in changes to recollection-based judgments. These findings can potentially be reconciled by assuming that stimulus-driven and strategy-driven semantic manipulations evoke different kinds of interactions with episodic retrieval. The former impact primarily on the process of familiarity, while the latter impact on the process of recollection. We investigated this possibility in two experiments. In both, event-related potentials (ERPs) were acquired during the test phases of recognition memory tasks. In the first experiment, participants completed a lexical decision task at study. Memory was superior for words than for non-words, and an ERP index of familiarity was larger for words, consistent with the view that (i) stimulus-driven access influences familiarity, and (ii) this process is responsible for the differences in response accuracy. In the second experiment, words were subjected to either semantic or non-semantic encoding. Memory at test was superior following semantic rather than non-semantic encoding. ERP indices of familiarity at test were invariant across encoding tasks, and an ERP index of recollection was larger following deep encoding. Overall, the correspondences between the behavioural and ERP findings indicate that the route by which semantic information is accessed plays a critical role in guiding the type of interplay between episodic and semantic memories.

Evidence for enduring deficits after the resolution of visuo-spatial neglect
Publication year: 2013

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Neglect frequently resolves spontaneously-however many patients continue to suffer from a number of important and frequently overlooked deficits. These residual deficits involve a number of critical functions associated with parietal cortex: attention; remapping of spatial information across saccades; spatial aspects of long-term memory. First, patients with resolved neglect appear to suffer from a pathological loss of attention capacity. We have shown this by modulating the difficulty of a task at fixation and assessing the impact of this manipulation on perception across the visual field. Patients with right parietal lesions – but without neglect - are impaired in detecting contralesional stimuli only when central task difficulty is high. Further, this impairment extends temporally leading to a spatiotemporal ‘attentional blink’ in which patients are unable to detect contralesional stimuli for a lag of up to 500 ms (Russell et al, 2004; Russell et al, 2012). Second, after neglect has resolved a considerable number of patients continue to suffer from constructional apraxia, such that they are unable to copy drawings or 3D constructions. We have assessed spatial remapping across saccades in these individuals and have shown a specific impairment in remapping location information, as compared to pattern information (Russell et al, 2010). Recently, in recovered neglect patients with right parietal damage we have assessed whether deficits in spatial representation can be revealed in tests of long-term memory. This has proved to be the case as, despite having no memory deficits in standard neuropsychological tests, when examined with a paradigm designed to examine personal spatial perspective within episodic memory, patients with right parietal damage are greatly impaired. The results of these three lines of research will be discussed in relation to enduring dysfunction following right parietal damage, and how this might relate to the neglect syndrome itself.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
This experiment was designed to investigate changes in neural activity during a retrieval task, assuming that the demands placed on monitoring the contents of retrieval increase as the numbers of stimuli to which memory judgments are required also increase.
METHODS:
We measured event-related potentials (ERPs) because they index processes related to retrieval monitoring. Participants first studied words in one of two colours. Studied and unstudied (new) words were then presented in a neutral colour. ERPs were acquired while people made old/new and then study colour judgments to the words.
RESULTS:
ERPs associated with correct judgments to new words (correct rejections) and correct colour judgments to old words were compared for the first and the second halves of the retrieval task. The differences between these two classes of ERPs were not the same over the task from 1000ms post-stimulus. Response accuracy did not vary, and reaction times were slower in the second half.
CONCLUSIONS:
These ERP differences occurred in a time period where ERPs have been shown to index retrieval monitoring operations. The findings indicate, therefore, that not entirely the same retrieval processes were engaged over the complete retrieval task. Alongside the absence of evidence for this change in an experiment where auditory rather than visual contexts were used at study, these findings suggest the outcome is not simply an effect of time on task. It is possible that the changes across halves index additional processes engaged as the demands placed on distinguishing between similar memory representations increase. Irrespective of the accuracy of this account, however, these findings indicate there are circumstances where making functional
inferences about patterns of neural activity in brain imaging experiments based on data averaged over the entirety of retrieval tasks can lead to inaccurate functional characterisations.

Electrophysiological evidence for retrieval mode immediately after a task switch
Publication year: 2015

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053811914010738
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It has been suggested that retrieving episodic information involves adopting a cognitive state or set: retrieval mode. In a series of studies, an event-related potential (ERP) index of retrieval mode has been identified in designs which cue participants on a trial-by-trial basis to switch between preparing for and then completing an episodic or non-episodic retrieval task. However, a confound in these studies is that along with task type the content of what is to be retrieved has varied. Here we examined whether the ERP index of retrieval mode remains when the contents of an episodic and non-episodic task are highly similar – both requiring a location judgement. In the episodic task participants indicated the screen location where words had been shown in a prior study phase (left/right/new); whereas in the perceptual task they indicated the current screen location of the word (top/middle/bottom). Consistent with previous studies the ERPs elicited while participants prepared for episodic retrieval were more positive-going at right-frontal sites than when they prepared for the perceptual task. This index was observed, however, on the first trial after participants had switched tasks, rather than on the second trial, as has been observed previously. Potential reasons for this are discussed, including the critical manipulation of similarity in contents between tasks, as well as the use of a predictable cue sequence.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
One influential explanation for the costs incurred when switching between tasks is that they reflect interference arising from completing the previous task—known as task-set inertia. We report a novel approach for assessing task-set inertia in a memory experiment using event-related potentials (ERPs). After a study phase, participants completed a test block in which they switched between a memory task (retrieving information from the study phase) and a perceptual task. These tasks alternated every two trials. An ERP index of the retrieval of study information was evident in the memory task. It was also present on the first trial of the perceptual task but was markedly attenuated on the second. Moreover, this task-irrelevant ERP activity was positively correlated with a behavioral cost associated with switching between tasks. This real-time measure of neural activity thus provides direct evidence of task-set inertia, its duration, and the functional role it plays in switch costs.

A contribuição dos esquemas semânticos para as facetas lexical e episódica de novas palavras em jovens adultos
Publication year: 2017
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Learning new words is a life-long skill that we maintain even through adulthood. A new word has two facets that differ both in their time course and their neural underpinnings. The lexical facet concerns the integration of the new word in the mental lexicon and its role in lexical dynamics, namely, competition during recognition. This facet emerges slowly, usually after a consolidation period involving sleep. The episodic facet relates to the temporal-spatial representation of the new word which becomes available immediately after encoding. The development of this facet usually benefits from the presence of semantic schemas, i.e., abstract mental structures to which new information can be anchored. However, the impact of semantic schemas on the development of the lexical facet is not as clear. Recent literature has provided mixed results, even suggesting the presence of schemas could be detrimental for lexicalization. The current project explores the role of semantic schemas on the development of the two facets of new spoken words (e.g., leoparna derived from the baseword leopardo and as such members of the same phonological cohort), by manipulating the visual information presented during encoding. Twenty four young adults heard the new words in a phoneme monitoring task on Day 1 and Day 2 (24h after the first session). Each new word was accompanied by a context of visual information presented in the center of the screen (within participants): in the orthographic context, its orthographic representation (e.g., leoparna); in the semantic context, a word (e.g., chávena; with no phonological or semantic association with the baseword) presented as a synonym for the new word. The two facets were evaluated in three sessions in order to study their time course: Day 1 (immediately after encoding); Day 2 (24h after encoding and before the second encoding phase); Day 8 (1 week after Day 1 and with no encoding period between Day 2 and 8). The lexical facet was indirectly studied through a semantic categorization task on the basewords (from which the new words were constructed), considering that if the new item (e.g., leoparna) had been lexicalized, participants would be slower to recognize the basewords (e.g., leopard), compared to control words (e.g., pérola, without any association with the new words but with the same psycholinguistic properties as the basewords). The lexical facet only emerged on Day 8 and it was only significant for words learned in the orthographic context: young adults were slower to categorize basewords associated to new words learned in the orthographic context compared to control words. To basewords related to new words learned in the semantic context no significant differences were observed in relation to control words, even after 1 week (although numerically there was an advantage for the categorization of control words on Day 8).These results suggest that the lexical facet is stronger for words learned in orthographic context, since they were integrated in the mental lexicon, influencing the recognition of words that were members of the same phonological cohort. The development of the episodic facet was immediate, in agreement with the previous literature: participants were able to recognize the new items and to recall them immediately after the first encoding phase, with this episodic facet becoming stronger throughout the sessions. However, unlike it was expected, the episodic facet of words learned in the orthographic context was stronger than the words learned in the semantic context. These results suggest that the presence of semantic schemas can interfere with the emergence of the lexical facet and, possibly, in the consolidation of the episodic facet of new words. Yet, if on one hand the interference observed for the emergence of the lexical facet can be explained by the complementary learning systems model McClelland et al., 1995), on the other hand, the interference observed on the consolidation of the episodic facet can be explained by a difficulty in the integration of the lexical information of the synonym-word and the new word. This possibility might suggest that semantic information access does not occur automatically but demands cognitive resources, at least when this information is presented in a written format. The current study converges with an arising body of literature that aims to fully comprehend learning new words as episodic and lexical representations.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Successful retrieval of episodic information is thought to involve the adoption of memory states that ensure that stimulus events are treated as episodic memory cues (retrieval mode) and which can bias retrieval toward specific memory contents (retrieval orientation). The neural correlates of these memory states have been identified in many neuroimaging studies, yet critically there is no direct evidence that they facilitate retrieval success. We cued participants before each test item to prepare to complete an episodic (retrieve the encoding task performed on the item at study) or a non-episodic task. Our design allowed us to separate event-related potentials (ERPs) elicited by the preparatory episodic cue according to the accuracy of the subsequent memory judgment. We predicted that a correlate of retrieval orientation should be larger in magnitude preceding correct source judgments than that preceding source errors. This hypothesis was confirmed. Preparatory ERPs at bilateral frontal sites were significantly more positive-going when preceding correct source judgments than when preceding source errors or correct responses in a non-episodic baseline task. Furthermore this effect was not evident prior to recognized items associated with incorrect source judgments. This pattern of results indicates a direct contribution of retrieval orientation to the recovery of task-relevant information and highlights the value of separating preparatory neural activity at retrieval according to subsequent memory accuracy. Moreover, at a more general level this work demonstrates the important role of pre-stimulus processing in ecphory, which has remained largely neglected to date.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
Repeated study typically improves episodic memory performance. Two different types of explanations of this phenomenon have been put forward: (1) reactivating the same representations strengthens and stabilizes memories, or (2) greater encoding variability benefits memory by promoting richer traces. The present experiment directly compared these predictions in a design with multiple repeated study episodes, allowing to dissociate memory for studied items and their context of study. Participants repeatedly encoded names of famous people four times, either in the same task, or in different tasks. During the test phase, an old/new judgment task was used to assess item memory, followed by a source memory judgment about the encoding task. Consistent with predictions from the encoding variability view, encoding stimulus in different contexts resulted in higher item memory. In contrast, consistent with the reactivation view, source memory performance was higher when participants encoded stimuli in the same task repeatedly. Taken together, our findings indicate that encoding variability benefits episodic memory, by increasing the number of items that are recalled. These benefits are however at the expenses of source recollection and memory for details, which are decreased, likely due to interference and generalization across contexts.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
Although there is strong support from functional imaging studies for lateral parietal lobe involvement in episodic memory, patients with damage to these regions do not appear to suffer from severe deficits in this cognitive domain. As such there has been no definitive explanation of this area's precise involvement. Here, we hypothesised that parietal regions play a crucial role in episodic memory - specifically in recollecting details from an egocentric perspective. In order to test this hypothesis systematically, we designed a novel experimental task utilising a head-mounted camera to record images from the participant's perspective, enabling us to evaluate the integrity of memory from the individual's own point of view. In the first study we examined patients with parietal damage and in a second study, using fMRI, we examined young and older healthy participants. Right-hemisphere patients with parietal damage were able to recall information accurately when recollecting what items had been present and where these items had been. However, patients were significantly impaired when attempting to judge from which perspective they had viewed the scenes. Critically, the patient group showed no evidence of impairment on standard tests of episodic and working memory. Examination of healthy participants in the second study utilised multi-voxel pattern analysis on neural activity during the recognition phase of a similar task. This revealed sensitivity to be highest around the angular gyrus of the lateral parietal cortex for our critical comparison - that is, when viewing stimuli that were the same as their egocentric view during encoding versus the identical scene but presented from an alternative angle. Our results provide important evidence that parietal cortex is directly involved in egocentric spatial perspective aspects of episodic memory and demonstrate for the first time a specific deficit in episodic memory in patients with right parietal damage.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The medial temporal lobe supports both navigation and declarative memory. On this basis, a theory of phylogenetic continuity has been proposed according to which episodic and semantic memories have evolved from egocentric (e.g., path integration) and allocentric (e.g., map-based) navigation in the physical world, respectively. Here, we explored the behavioral significance of this neurophysiological model by investigating the relationship between the performance of healthy individuals on a path integration and an episodic memory task. We investigated the path integration performance through a proprioceptive Triangle Completion Task and assessed episodic memory through a picture recognition task. We evaluated the specificity of the association between performance in these two tasks by including in the study design a verbal semantic memory task. We also controlled for the effect of attention and working memory and tested the robustness of the results by including alternative versions of the path integration and semantic memory tasks. We found a significant positive correlation between the performance on the path integration the episodic, but not semantic, memory tasks. This pattern of correlation was not explained by general cognitive abilities and persisted also when considering a visual path integration task and a non-verbal semantic memory task. Importantly, a cross-validation analysis showed that participants' egocentric navigation abilities reliably predicted episodic memory performance. Altogether, our findings support the hypothesis of a phylogenetic continuity between egocentric navigation and episodic memory and pave the way for future research on the potential causal role of egocentric navigation on multiple forms of episodic memory.

Publication year: 2021

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Based on the neuro-functional association between navigation in the physical and the mental space at the level of the hippocampal-entorhinal system, Buzsáki and Moser (2013) have hypothesized a phylogenetic continuity between spatial navigation and declarative memory functions. According to this proposal, mechanisms of episodic and semantic memory would have evolved from mechanisms of self-based and map-based navigation in the physical space, respectively. Using classic versions of path integration and item recognition tasks in human subjects, we have recently described a correlation and a predictive relationship between abilities in egocentric navigation and episodic memory. Here we aim at confirming and extending this association to the dynamic component of sequential updating in the physical (egocentric navigation) and mental (episodic memory) space, and at investigating the relationship of these self-centered abilities with semantic memory. To this aim, we developed three new experimental tasks in which the dynamic component of updating information is particularly emphasized in the spatial, the temporal, and the semantic domain. The contribution of visual short-term memory to the three tasks was also controlled by including an additional task. The results confirmed the existence of a direct and predictive relationship between self-based spatial navigation and episodic memory. We also found a significant association between egocentric navigation and semantic memory, but this relationship was explained by short-term memory abilities and was mediated by episodic memory functions. Our results support the hypothesis of an evolutionary link between mechanisms that allow spatial navigation in the physical space and time travel in the mental space.
