Participants with stimulating and recording electrodes implanted within the brain for clinical evaluation and treatment provide a rare opportunity to unravel the neuronal correlates of human memory, as well as offer potential for modulation of behavior. Recent intracranial stimulation studies of memory have been inconsistent in methodologies employed and reported conclusions, which renders generalizations and construction of a framework impossible. In an effort to unify future study efforts and enable larger meta-analyses we propose in this mini-review a set of guidelines to consider when pursuing intracranial stimulation studies of human declarative memory and summarize details reported by previous relevant studies. We present technical and safety issues to consider when undertaking such studies and a checklist for researchers and clinicians to use for guidance when reporting results, including targeting, placement, and localization of electrodes, behavioral task design, stimulation and electrophysiological recording methods, details of participants, and statistical analyses. We hope that, as research in invasive stimulation of human declarative memory further progresses, these reporting guidelines will aid in setting standards for multicenter studies, in comparison of findings across studies, and in study replications.
