Memory Contextualization: The Role of Prefrontal Cortex in Functional Integration across Item and Context Representational Regions

Published in: Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Volume 30, Issue 4, April 2018, 579-593 Abstract “Memory recall is facilitated when retrieval occurs in the original encoding context. This context dependency effect likely results from the automatic binding of central elements of an experience with contextual features (i.e., memory “contextualization”) during encoding. However, despite a vast body of research investigating the neural correlates of explicit associative memory, the neural interactions during encoding that predict implicit context-dependent memory remain unknown. Twenty-six participants underwent fMRI during encoding of salient stimuli (faces), which were overlaid onto unique background images (contexts). To index subsequent context-dependent memory, face… Read More
