Suppressing the encoding of new information in memory: a behavioral study derived from principles of hippocampal function.

Take-home message: We show here that mixing tasks that involve executive control (the n-back task, requiring continual updating and discarding of information held presently ‘in mind’) inhibits dramatically performance on an explicit memory task (associative memory: face-name pair learning), but not performance on control recognition memory tasks. We therefore provide further behavioural evidence that memory subsystems… Read More
