the conscious experience of memory, which is independent of true “oldness” (Slotnick and Schacter, 2004). Others have suggested that such processing is likely to reflect successful retrieval of the general properties of originally studied items such as shape and color (Garoff‐Eaton, Slotnick, and Schacter, 2006) or those involving the semantic label or general category (e.g., fruit, bird) to which the item belongs. As such, common activity in semantic processing regions, such as left temporal

and Funahashi, 2002, 2004, 2007). Another example is a study designed to dissociate the focus of spatial attention from the focus of spatial memory that finds the majority of delay‐active ­neurons to track the former (Lebedev et al., 2004). (Limits of the specificity assumption will also factor importantly in the consideration of “reverse inference” in neuroimaging, which appears further along, in the section on Implications of MVPA for ROI‐based analyses.)

subregions contribute to human memory function poses a unique challenge for cognitive neuroscience research. Individuals with MTL lesions typically have damage that affects several MTL subregions, spanning both hippocampus and surrounding MTL cortices. Even those individuals with restricted hippocampal lesions have damage to multiple hippocampal subregions. Therefore, while the neuropsychological study of MTL patients has taught us a great deal about the essential nature of the region for
