Bidirectional Interactions Between Memory and Imagination

Bidirectional Interactions Between Memory and Imagination

(p.93) 5 Bidirectional Interactions Between Memory and Imagination
Seeing the Future

Remembering the past and imagining the future are closely linked processes. Much of the extant research on the relation between memory and simulation has focused on the critical role of memory in simulating future events. However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the relation between memory and imagination is not simply unidirectional, as the process of imagining events can influence the content, phenomenology, and veracity of memories. This chapter first reviews evidence that the access to episodic and semantic memory is critical for constructing future simulations, and recent work suggesting that the quality of memory can influence phenomenology of future events. Second, it considers how imagination can influence both the accurate encoding of imagined representations as well as the formation of false memories.

Keywords:   memory, false memory, episodic memory, future simulation, semantic memory
