The assessment of stimulus novelty is a pre-requisite for many kinds of learning. Here, we summarize research on the representation of novelty-and familiarity by individual neurons in the human MTL. These neurons express single-trial learning, i.e. they change their response after a single response. The response strength of these neurons is continuously related to memory strength. We further describe a study that shows that individual MTL neurons phase-lock to ongoing theta rhythms and that the strength of such phase locking during learning is predictive of later memory strength.
