  1. 1. Brain activity associated with episodic memory similarities and differences between encoding and retrieval

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jonas Persson; Umeå universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Episodic memory; encoding; retrieval; positron emission tomography PET ; enactment; overlap; retrieval mode; retrieval success; novelty;

    Abstract : Understanding the mnemonic functions of the brain has been extensively facilitated by the development of functional neuroimaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The present thesis aims at investigating the neural mechanisms underlying memory for personally experienced events (episodic memory), using PET. READ MORE

  2. 2. How the past becomes present neural mechanisms governing retrieval from episodic memory

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Kristiina Kompus; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; episodic retrieval; cognitive control; retrieval intention; prefrontal cortex; functional magnetic resonance imaging; event-related potentials; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Neurophysiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Neurofysiologi; diagnostisk radiologi; Diagnostic Radiology;

    Abstract : Remembering previously experienced events can happen as a result of an effortful retrieval attempt. At other occasions, a memory can enter our minds without any apparent effort – or, indeed, intention - to retrieve. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tracking the Mind's Eye : Eye movements during mental imagery and memory retrieval

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Roger Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Mental Imagery; Eye Movements; Eye-tracking; Encoding; Recall; Memory Retrieval; Episodic Memory;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the relationship between eye movements, mental imagery and memory retrieval in four studies based on eye-tracking experiments. The first study is an investigation of eye movements during mental imagery elicited both visually and verbally. READ MORE

  4. 4. Making Head or Tail of the Hippocampus A Long-Axis Account of Episodic and Spatial Memory

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonas Persson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hippocampus; fMRI; episodic memory; spatial memory; gender differences; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : While episodic and spatial memory both depend on the hippocampus, opposite gender differences in these functions suggest they are partly separate, with different neural underpinnings. The anterior and posterior hippocampus differ  in structure and whole-brain connectivity, and studies point to the posterior hippocampus being more involved in spatial memory while the anterior hippocampus’ role in episodic memory is less clear.

  5. 5. Motivation and episodic memory performance

    University dissertation from Umeå : Psykologi

    Author : Leonard Ngaosuvan; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; Motivation; Memory Performance; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Abstract : In everyday life, motivation and learning are connected like music and dancing. Many educators realize this and work hard to improve their students' motivation. A motivated student may repeat and self-rehearse the content of a chapter more often, which leads to better learning. READ MORE
