Exploring Behavioral Correlates of a Hippocampal-Dependent Implicit Memory Measure


Authors: Yoselin Canizales, Constance Greenwood, Raechel Marino ,Lindsey Sirianni, Alana Muller, Richard Addante Abstract: Traditional models of human memory are predicated upon the foundation that long-term declarative memory relies critically upon the integrity of the human hippocampus, whereas non-conscious or implicit memory does not. Prior findings have begun to question this core dogma of human memory and using electrophysiological methods (EEG) for capturing non-conscious memory signals, earlier work from our lab identified a hippocampal-dependent implicit memory effect that was impaired in the electrophysiology of amnesia patients (Addante, 2015, Neuroimage). However, this work did not examine concurrent behavioral measures to provide crucial insight into the nature of this surprising impairment. The present study explores this same physiological effect with the added integration of behavioral measures that are critical to linking physiological impairments at the scalp with meaningful behavioral manifestations of memory deficits.
