| By adapting functional magnetic resonance imaging scanning parameters to maximize sensitivity to medial temporal lobe activity, we demonstrate that left perirhinal and hippocampal responses during word list encoding are greater for subsequently recalled than forgotten words||B.

|Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to examine whether (1) verbal associative encoding activates the medial temporal lobes (MTL) and related regions more than non-associative encoding, (2) verbal associative novelty is related to enhanced MTL activation, and (3) verbal item novelty is related to enhanced MTL activation and, if so, whether these activations are in different or overlapping sites||Nicola M. Hunkin; Andrew R. Mayes; Lloyd J. Gregory; Amanda K. Nicholas; Julia A. Nunn; Michael J. Brammer; Edward T. Bullmore; Steven C. R. Williams.

| Together, our findings suggest that new semantic associations can be formed and retrieved by way of the medial temporal lobe without awareness of the associations or its components at encoding or any awareness that one is remembering at retrieval||Katharina Henke; Christian R. A. Mondadori; Valerie Treyer; Roger M. Nitsch; Alfred Buck; Christoph Hock. Nonconscious formation and reactivation of semantic associations by way of the medial temporal lobe.
