Autobiographical memory (AM) is built up from various kinds of knowledge, from general to specific, via generative processes. Aging seems to particularly affect the episodic autobiographical information while preserving information that is more semantic. However, the mechanism of this deficit has not yet been thoroughly tested in relation to working memory.(More)
According to Tulving, episodic memory allows humans to travel mentally through subjective time into either the past or the future, this ability being at the origin of adaptation, organization and planning of future behavior. The main aim of this review is to present a state of art of episodic mental time travel and a lifespan perspective from children to(More)
We investigated for the first time the episodic/semantic distinction in remembering the past and imagining the future in traumatic brain injury (TBI), and explored cognitive mechanisms that may underlie their deficits. Fifteen severe TBI patients and 15 control participants performed a battery of neuropsychological tests and a set of verbal fluency tasks(More)
Conway's autobiographical memory (AM) model postulates that memories are not stored in a crystallised form in long-term memory but are reconstructed at time of retrieval via executive and binding processes, to create a temporary multimodal representation from different AM knowledge. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) impairs AM recollection. However, no study has(More)
