  1. 6. The power of action and knowledge in episodic memory for school-aged children

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Farzaneh Badinlou; Reza Kormi-Nouri; Monika Knopf; Agneta Herlitz; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Episodic memory; action memory; enactment effect; subject-performed tasks; experimenter-performed tasks; verbal tasks; school-aged children; memory strategies; information processing;

    Abstract : Developmental and cognitive research suggests that there are age-related differ-ences in children’s episodic memory across school ages due to the development of knowledge, which in turn affects memory strategy use and information pro-cessing over time. However, there are controversial findings related to devel-opmental patterns and factors involved in children’s episodic memory function. READ MORE

  2. 7. Episodic memory in the human prefrontal cortex

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Johan Sandblom; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis consisting of five papers examines the relationship between haemodynamicactivation in the prefrontal cortex with episodicmemoryfunction in the healthy human brain. Brain function is measured with positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) and episodic memory for words as well as visuo-spatial material is examined.

  3. 8. Behavioral and Electrophysiological Correlates of Inhibition in Episodic Memory

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Gerd Waldhauser; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; memory control; inhibition; EEG; ERP; forgetting;

    Abstract : Forgetting can be highly functional when unwanted or irrelevant memory representations interfere with cognitive or motivational goals. Current theory assumes that forgetting can be brought about by the intentional or unintentional inhibition of interfering memory representations. READ MORE

  4. 9. Neuropsychological Function in Relation to Structural and Functional Brain Changes in Alzheimer’s Disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Eva Elgh; Jarl Risberg; [2004]
    Keywords : Alzheimer´s disease; neuropsychological function; episodic memory; hippocampus; prefrontal cortex; brain imaging; MRI; fMRI; SPECT; LHPA-axis; cortisol; geriatrik; Geriatrics;

    Abstract : The aim of this doctoral thesis was to study neuropsychological function in relation to structural and functional brain changes in Alzheimer´s disease (AD).In the first study relations between hippocampal volume, neuropsychological function and limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (LHPA) axis disturbances in AD were investigated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

  5. 10. Remembering in Alzheimer's disease utilization of cognitive support

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Agneta Herlitz; Lars-Göran Nilsson; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; Dementia; Memory; Episodic memory; Semantic memory; Severity of dementia; Alzheimers sjukdom; demens; minne;

    Abstract : The aim of the present doctoral thesis was to investigate the ability of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) to utilize cognitive support in order to improve episodic remembering. A review of previous research indicated that most studies have failed to find beneficial effects of encoding support on memory in AD patients. READ MORE
