The gap between episodic memory and experiment: Can c-fos expression replace recognition testing?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (3):445-446 (1999)
Abstract
The effort to identify the neural substrate of episodic recall, though ambitious, lacks experimental support. By considering the data on c-fos activation by novel and familiar stimuli in recognition studies, we illustrate how inadequate experimental designs permit alternative interpretations. We stress that interpretation of c-fos expression changes should be supported by adequate recognition tests.
