The contribution of lateral parietal regions such as the angular gyrus to human episodic memory has been the subject of

neuroimaging studies of memory retrieval. Patients with lateral parietal lesions are not amnesic, but recent evidence

measures such as source accuracy are used, patients often exhibit reduced subjective confidence in their accurate

and specificity, but can remember specific details when prompted. Two distinct theoretical accounts have been proposed to

they have an impairment in the subjective experience of recollection. The present study aimed to differentiate between

parietal subregions, including angular gyrus. Inconsistent with predictions of the attentional theory, angular gyrus cTBS did

account, temporary disruption of angular gyrus was associated with highly accurate source recollection accuracy but a

integration of memory features into a conscious representation that enables the subjective experience of remembering.
