Neuron. 2018 Dec 14;: Authors: Koolschijn RS, Emir UE, Pantelides AC, Nili H, Behrens TEJ, Barron HC Abstract Our experiences often overlap with each other, yet we are able to selectively recall individual memories to guide decisions and future actions. The neural mechanisms that support such precise memory recall remain unclear. Here, using ultra-high field 7T MRI we reveal two distinct mechanisms that protect memories from interference. The first mechanism involves the hippocampus, where the blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) signal predicts behavioral measures of memory interference, and representations of context-dependent memories ... read more
