Feedback-based learning relies on a procedural learning system driven by reward prediction errors (RPEs). The processing of temporally delayed feedback is supported by brain structures associated with declarative memory processes, but it is still unknown how delayed feedback processing and memory encoding interact. In this study, a subsequent memory paradigm was employed to investigate how the incidental encoding of feedback pictures presented with a short (SD, 500 ms) or long (LD, 6500 ms) dela...

Familiarity-based discrimination between studied target items and similar foils in yes/no recognition memory tests is relatively poor. According to the complementary learning systems (CLS) framework this is due do a relatively small difference in familiarity strength between these two item classes. The model, however, also predicts that when targets and corresponding similar foils are presented next to each other in a forced-choice corresponding (FCC) test format, familiarity values for targets ...

Abstract Learning is most effective when new information can be related to a preexisting knowledge structure or schema. In the present study, event-related potentials (ERPs) were used to investigate the temporal dynamics of the processes by which activated schemata support the encoding of schema-congruent information. Participants learned category exemplar words that were either semantically congruent or incongruent with a preceding category cue phrase. Congruent words were composed of expected ...

Abstract Acute stress is known to modulate episodic memory, but little is known about the extent to, and the circumstances under, which stress affects encoding of item vs. inter-item associative information for words of different valences. Furthermore, the precise neuro-cognitive mechanisms underlying stress effects on episodic encoding in humans are largely unknown. To address these questions, in the present study we recorded EEG activity while male participants encoded neutral, negative and po...

Abstract Previous research has shown that in reinforcement learning, the hippocampus is involved in the processing of feedback when it is delayed for several seconds. Also, better recognition memory has been reported for temporally delayed than for immediately presented feedback pictures. Event-related potential (ERP) studies have found that feedback delay affects the amplitude of the feedback-related negativity (FRN), and there is evidence suggesting that the FRN is modulated by declarative lea...

Abstract Emotional events are preferentially retained in episodic memory. This effect is commonly attributed to enhanced consolidation and has been linked specifically to rapid eye movement (REM) sleep physiology. While several studies have demonstrated an enhancing effect of REM sleep on emotional item memory, it has not been thoroughly explored whether this effect extends to the retention of associative memory. Moreover, it is unclear how non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep contributes to thes...

Abstract Illusory correlations (IC) are the perception of covariation, where none exists. For example, people associate majorities with frequent behavior and minorities with infrequent behavior even in the absence of such an association. According to the information loss account, ICs result from greater fading of infrequent group-behavior combinations in memory. We conducted computer simulations based on this account which showed that ICs are expected under standard conditions with skewed catego...
