This chapter examines two strategies used in animal research and considers how the resultant information has helped to identify functional systems for the processing of episodic-like memory. In the first approach, a particular component of episodic memory that can be examined in animals is identified and the neural systems underlying that facet of episodic memory identified. Relevant to this approach is the acknowledgement that ‘the presence or absence of episodic memory is no more an all-or-none matter between species than it is within them’. Accordingly, it should be possible to break down episodic memory into a number of simpler components and examine them separately.
