A comprehensive understanding of human memory requires both cognitive and neural descriptions of memory processes along with a conception of how memory processing drives behavioral responses and subjective experiences. The electrophysiological approaches described here are highly suitable for progressing toward these goals. In particular, event-related potentials provide real-time measures of relevant memory processes, including those associated with recollection, familiarity, perceptual priming, and conceptual priming. Many challenges remain in isolating and understanding these different memory functions. Nonetheless, brain potentials can be used effectively in conjunction with other cognitive neuroscience methods to advance our understanding of remembering.
