The Museum as Memory Palace: Memory is another form of illusion but also a tool to navigate the construct of time. Test your ability to retain and recall information you learned in one hour with US Memory Champion Nelson Dellis. You will need an imagination and a keen sense of adventure, but you have to leave pencil, paper, smart phone, and other current aide-mémoires behind. Do you want to be able to remember names at parties? Or where you last left your car keys? Or memorize The Waste Land? Attend this training by USA Memory Champion Nelson Dellis who will convert the whole museum into a 'memory palace', a powerful mental device that the ancient Greeks employed to remember oratory as well as shopping lists. Employing exotic fragrances to help anchor your memorization, and magical illusions to test them, this will be unlike any other museum experience you have ever had
Cognitive and neural mechanisms that support retrieval from working memory by Ilke Oztekin( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collectively, the studies indicate that the nature of the retrieval operation is determined by the type of information that needs to be accessed and the amount of interference present in the retrieval context. Results further indicate that the left inferior prefrontal cortex, the left posterior parietal cortex, and the medial temporal lobes jointly support working memory retrieval
Neural and cognitive mechanisms underlying human episodic memory encoding and retrieval by Katherine Duncan( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although these issues have received extensive treatment in theoretical models, they have been comparatively under-explored in the domain of human cognitive neuroscience. The experiments in this dissertation explore several predictions from this work using a combination of techniques, including behavioral manipulations, functional connectivity analyses, and measures of trial-evoked responses using high-resolution and conventional-resolution fMRI. In the first study, we found evidence for temporally extended behavioral biases following encoding and retrieval events, suggesting that mnemonic biases can be established in the episodic memory system
Emotional Modulation of Visual Attention by Emma Ferneyhough( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We show that observer handedness (Chapter 1), trait anxiety and sex of the observer (Chapter 2) also modulate this effect. Chapter 3 utilizes a variant of the attentional blink paradigm to investigate the neural correlates of emotion's cost to temporal attention. Emotional distracter words disrupt processing of neutral target words in a rapid serial visual presentation. We show that brain regions underlying bottom-up emotional responses, such as the amygdala, may help direct attention to distracters via the orbitofrontal cortex and intraparietal sulcus during emotional costs. Emotional costs to attention may be worsened in individuals who engage the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex less (primarily observers low in self-reported attentional control and high in trait anxiety). As opposed to facilitative effects of emotion to attention, costs are suggested to occur when bottom-up emotional responses out-compete top-down attentional control mechanisms

Neural and cognitive mechanisms underlying episodic memory formation in humans by Bernhard Staresina( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of three functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies reveal a clear distinction between these two subregions along the dimensions of stimulus domain and representational integrity of the to-be-remembered information. First, PrC mechanisms seem to be specific to the encoding of item- or object-related information, supporting subsequent item recognition as well as memory for item-related event details (an associated item color), but not for contextual event details (a surrounding task context). Conversely, hippocampal encoding mechanisms seem to be domain-general, supporting subsequent memory for both item-related and contextual event details. However, involvement of the hippocampus during successful episodic binding was found to be directly modulated by the level of representational integrity of the constituent event details, suggesting that a core function of the hippocampus is to mnemonically overcome discontiguities across the elements of our experience

Emotion interference resolution: The neural mechanisms underlying the emotional facilitation of interference resolution in working memory by Sara Mead Levens( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The ability to effectively resolve interference between working memory representations is critical to performing a task. The effect of emotional stimuli on interference resolution, however, is relatively unexplored. In this series of studies, we examine how emotion affects interference resolution processes within working memory. Study one is a collection of three behavioral experiments that compare reaction times to interference and non-interference trials for neutral and emotional words and pictures using the Recency-probes task. Results indicated that trials with emotional stimuli show a relative decrease in interference compared with neutral stimuli, suggesting facilitation of interference resolution. Study two uses functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the neural mechanisms that underlie the emotional facilitation of interference resolution effect isolated in Study one. Results indicate that similar regions of the anterior insula underlie neutral and emotional interference resolution, and that additional regions of the orbital frontal cortex (OFC) and anterior insula cortex may also contribute to the facilitation of interference resolution for emotional information. Study three conducts the emotion Recency-probes paradigm on lesion patients with unilateral frontal and temporal lobe damage to determine whether the OFC and the left amygdala are integral to emotional interference resolution. Results indicate that both the OFC and left amygdala are critical to the emotional facilitation of interference resolution in working memory. The findings from all three studies together suggest a neural model of emotional interference resolution that informs how executive control processes may regulate the incorporation of emotional stimuli into working memory to perform tasks
The ebb and flow of experience determines the temporal structure of memory( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Contextual change parses ongoing experience into episodic memories. Mechanisms supporting temporal memory differ within and across events. Within events, temporal memory is related to temporal stability in brain patterns. Across-event integration is related to retrieval processes at event boundaries. Retrieval of parts of a sequence can reinstate other sequence elements. Abstract : Everyday life consists of a continuous stream of information, yet somehow we remember the past as distinct episodic events. Prominent models posit that event segmentation is driven by erroneous predictions about how current experiences are unfolding. Yet this perspective fails to explain how memories become integrated or separated in the absence of prior knowledge. Here, we propose that contextual stability dictates the temporal organization of events in episodic memory. To support this view, we summarize new findings showing that neural measures of event organization index how ongoing changes in external contextual cues and internal representations of time influence different forms of episodic memory

Neural signatures of human episodic memory consolidation during awake rest by Arielle Tambini( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Chapter 1, we found that patterns of connectivity within the hippocampus that were characteristic of two distinct episodic encoding experiences showed evidence of persistence during post- encoding rest periods, and that this persistence was related to memory for stimuli seen during these distinct encoding experiences. In Chapter 2, we demonstrated that overall levels of hippocampal-cortical and cortico-cortical resting connectivity could be enhanced after episodic encoding experiences, depending on overall levels of memory for recent experiences. In particular, changes in post-encoding hippocampal-cortical connectivity were related to individual subjects' associative memory for recently viewed stimulus pairs. Lastly, in Chapter 3, we asked whether the presence of emotion during encoding, a factor known to enhance hippocampal-dependent memory consolidation, modulates overall levels of connectivity during post-encoding rest
