  Episodic memory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Episodic memory, or autobiographical memory, a sub-category of declarative memory, is the recollection of events.
Episodic memory contrasts and interacts with semantic memory, the memory of facts and concepts.
The latter view is strengthened by recent evidence that neurogenesis in the adult hippocampus may ease the removal of old memories and increase the efficiency of forming new memories (Deisseroth et al 2004).

 Memory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Declarative memory can be further sub-divided into semantic memory, which concerns facts taken independent of context; and episodic memory, which concerns information specific to a particular context, such as a time and place.
Episodic memory, on the other hand, is used for more personal memories, such as the sensations, emotions, and personal associations of a particular place or time.
A further major way to distinguish different memory functions is whether the content to be remembered is in the past, retrospective memory, or whether the content is to be remembered in the future, prospective memory.

 Episode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Episode is the word usually used to refer to a part of a serial television or radio program.
Episodes which end in the middle of a climatic moment are often called cliffhangers, after the name used for early movie serials.
Episodes can be part of a larger story arc stretched out over a time period covering one or more seasons, or even an entire series run.

So episodic memory is distinguished from non-episodic memory now in the sense that in the case of non-episodic memory, we start at some time, something happens, and then I find, too, we benefit from that earlier experience that we had at time one.
But they did lack the human component of episodic memory which is what I call autonomic consciousness and also subjective time, chronathesia, and she complained and said, yes, they do have, we can't talk to them, I'm learning scrub jay right now, but making not much progress and so on.
Episodic memory, the only memory system that allows individuals to mentally travel in subjective time, probably evolved not because it allows such time travel into the past, but because it allows mental time travel into the future.

Episodic (or autobiographical) memory is memory for events that are embedded in a temporal context.
By including older participants, who as a group are impaired in their use of episodic memory, we aim to determine whether the aging process selectively or differentially impairs certain memory processes.
Our latest work on age-related changes in episodic memory is discussed in Kahana, M., Rizzuto, D. and Schneider, A., 2005 and Howard, M., Wingfield, A. and Kahana, M. In addition to behavioral and theoretical analyses of episodic memory, we also explore the neurophysiology of episodic memory with both scalp and intracranial electroencephalographic (iEEG) recordings.

 Relating Semantic and Episodic Memory Systems.
Episodic and semantic memory are two forms of declarative memory that function in distinct but interdependent ways.
Imaging studies have shown that medial temporal lobe (MTL) structures like the hippocampus are involved in episodic memory, the left lateral temporal lobe (LTL) is involved in semantic memory, and left inferior frontal cortex involve both.
The LTL is involved in semantic memory and accurate episodic memory performance.

Cardiac and vascular reactions further suggested that memory maintenance is supported by phasic autonomic adjustments, and that with age; more of this support is required for adequate maintenance of episodic memory.
Since failing memory and mental diseases have been shown to have some association, some studies have also examined the use of memory in the diagnosis of primary stages of dementia.

Episodic memory is the record of events that the individual experiences throughout his/her/its life.
Inspired by Damasio's convergence-zone idea, the inputs to the memory are assumed to be represented locally in perceptual maps, and the memory encoding is a sparse random pattern in the hippocampus.
Such a memory can be analyzed mathematically and simulated computationally, and it suggests how the hippocampal memory can have a high capacity even with sparse connectivity and a relatively small number of computational units.

Abstract: Episodic memory is defined as the recollection of specific events in one's past, accompanied by the experience of having been there personally.
To demonstrate a correspondence between human episodic memory and nonhuman memory, progress is needed in three areas.
Putative episodic memories in nonhumans should be shown to be; first, represented in long-term memory, rather than short-term or working memory; second, explicit, or accessible to introspection; and third (...) general knowledge about the world.

 Memory Autobiography History
Episodic memory is autobiographical memory for one's own actions and experiences, while semantic memory is more or less generic, abstract knowledge, like a mental dictionary, not tied to any particular event.
To create an episodic memory, and autobiographical memory (with the emphasis on auto), the event node must be linked to a mental representation of the self as the agent or patient of some action or the stimulus or experiencer of some state.
In remembering, one gains access to a full episodic memory trace, including a raw description of the event in question, the spatiotemporal context in which it was situated, and some representation of the self as the agent or patient, stimulus or experiencer of the event.

 "Woohoo!" Episodic Memory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Episodic Memory (also referred to as Autobiographical Memory by some researchers) is a representation we form of an event in our lives, strongly anchored by an emotional appraisal of that episode, that we use to form a sense of ourselves and to anticipate our future.
So Episodic Memory requires three different elements to be encoded together: the pieces of data, the emotions we experience, and the meaning we extract.
The precursors for Episodic Memory are referencing, coordinating, and developing a unique sense of self apart from others (being able to experience a state of connection and disconnection).

 The Brains Halves Cooperate To Help Us Remember Events
In the second experiment, the authors studied episodic and semantic (factual) memory in 84 right-handed undergraduates, studying what happened when they presented words and letter strings to either one part of the brain or to both.
Further research may help explain why episodic memory benefits from the two halves working together, whereas factual/implicit memory is better processed in one half alone.
In light of the findings, it would mean that a functional corpus callosum is critical in the formation of event memories and therefore explain why its maturation in early childhood is at least partly responsible for the emergence of episodic memory.

 Cogprints - Convergence-Zone Episodic Memory: Analysis and Simulations
Human episodic memory provides a seemingly unlimited storage for everyday experiences, and a retrieval system that allows us to access the experiences with partial activation of their components.
For many configurations of the model, a theoretical lower bound for the memory capacity can be derived, and it can be an order of magnitude or higher than the number of all units in the model, and several orders of magnitude higher than the number of binding-layer units.
The convergence-zone episodic memory therefore accounts for the immediate storage and associative retrieval capability and large capacity of the hippocampal memory, and shows why the memory encoding areas can be much smaller than the perceptual maps, consist of rather coarse computational units, and be only sparsely connected to the perceptual maps.

Goertzel's (1994b) review points out that the episodic memory model of DISCERN (Miikkulainen, 1993, 1994) lacks certain fundamental properties of human memory, such as a capability for reorganization, and suggests that the distinction between memory and processing must be eliminated.
It describes the organization of the memory, how it is possible to arrive at such organization based on examples, and how the memory organization and storage and retrieval processes that operate on it result in behavior similar to that of humans.
Episodic experiences appear to be temporarily stored in the hippocampus as they come in and, over a period of several weeks to several years, transferred to the cortex for permanent storage (Squire, 1992).

Episodic memory...without it human civilization would not have evolved
A pioneer in memory research who has laid the groundwork for important discoveries, Dr. Tulving says episodic memory gives rise to the unique human ability to be aware of the future.
Tulving, who holds an Anne and Max Tanenbaum Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest, added that recent functional neuroimaging research done at the Institute has identified regions of the frontal lobes that seem to be critically involved in awareness of the past, and probably of the future.
