(p.164) 10 Neuroimaging studies of autobiographical event memory
Episodic Memory: New Directions in Research

Eleanor A. Maguire

Oxford University Press

There are a number of approaches to neuroimaging episodic memory. In many studies, subjects are scanned as they learn and/or remember stimuli such as words or word-pairs. Using paradigms such as this one continues to learn much about, for example, frontal lobe contributions to memory operations. This chapter focuses on the retrieval of autobiographical event memories, those personally relevant episodes with a specific spatio-temporal context, the storehouse of our life's experiences ranging from the recent to the very remote. Although neuroimaging embraces techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG) and event related potentials (ERPs), only positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) are considered in this instance, and the relevant literature briefly reviewed.
