Deconstructing the Posterior Medial Episodic Network
Identifying the Cognitive Processes Underpinning Hippocampal-Dependent Tasks
TLDR
It is found that autobiographical memory, future thinking, navigation, and also on the hippocampus are indeed related, and mediation analyses showed that scene construction, and not memory, mediated the relationships between the functions.
Using Imagination to Understand the Neural Basis of Episodic Memory
TLDR
It is concluded that scene construction constitutes a common process underlying episodic memory and imagination of fictitious experiences, and may partially account for the similar brain networks implicated in navigation, episodic future thinking, and the default mode.

The ability to construct a hypothetical situation in one's imagination prior to it actually occurring may afford greater accuracy in predicting its eventual outcome. The recollection of past
Identifying the cognitive processes underpinning hippocampal-dependent tasks
TLDR
It is found that autobiographical memory, future thinking, navigation and also on the hippocampus are indeed related, and mediation analyses showed that scene construction, and not memory, mediated (explained) the relationships between the functions.
Core Network Contributions to Remembering the Past, Imagining the Future, and Thinking Creatively
TLDR
The results provide further insight into the roles of the hippocampus and the core network in episodic memory retrieval, future simulation, and divergent thinking and extend recent work highlighting the involvement of constructive episodic processes in creative cognition.
Are episodic memories special? On the sameness of remembered and imagined event simulation
ABSTRACT Over the past decade, episodic memory has been reconceptualised as future-oriented. In 2007, Schacter and I proposed the ‘constructive episodic simulation hypothesis’ to account for emerging
Neural processes underpinning episodic memory
TLDR
This thesis addresses the fundamental issue of how the contributions individual brain areas make to the recollective experience of episodic memory by employing a range of different experimental techniques including neuropsychological testing, virtual reality environments, whole brain and high spatial resolution fMRI, and multivariate pattern analysis.
Constructive Episodic Simulation: Cognitive and Neural Processes
TLDR
The role of the extensively studied default network is reviewed, with a specific emphasis on three recent lines of research using 1) repetition suppression, i.e., decreased neural activity for a repeated stimulus; 2) transcranial magnetic stimulation, which can temporarily disrupt activity in specific brain regions; and 3) the episodic specificity induction, an experimental tool to identify and manipulate episodic contributions to subsequent tasks.

TLDR
This chapter provides a brief history of the concept of episodic memory, describes how it has changed (indeed greatly changed) since its inception, considers criticisms of it, and discusses supporting evidence provided by neuropsychological studies of patterns of memory impairment caused by brain damage, and functional neuroimaging studies of pattern of brain activity of normal subjects engaged in various memory tasks.
The cognitive neuroscience of constructive memory: remembering the past and imagining the future
  • D. Schacter, D. Addis
  • Psychology, Biology

TLDR
Cognitive, neuropsychological and neuroimaging evidence is considered showing that there is considerable overlap in the psychological and neural processes involved in remembering the past and imagining the future.
Toward a theory of episodic memory: the frontal lobes and autonoetic consciousness.
TLDR
Evidence supports a preliminary theory of episodic remembering, which holds that the prefrontal cortex plays a critical, supervisory role in empowering healthy adults with autonoetic consciousness-the capacity to mentally represent and become aware of subjective experiences in the past, present, and future.
Functional neuroanatomy of remote episodic, semantic and spatial memory: a unified account based on multiple trace theory
TLDR
The evidence suggests strongly that the function of the hippocampus (and possibly that of related limbic structures) is to help encode, retain, and retrieve experiences, no matter how long ago the events comprising the experience occurred, and no matter whether the memories are episodic or spatial.
The cognitive neuroscience of constructive memory.
TLDR
A general integrative framework that outlines the types of problems that the human memory system must solve in order to produce mainly accurate representations of past experience is first described.
Routes to remembering: the brains behind superior memory
TLDR
These results illustrate how functional neuroimaging might prove valuable in delineating the neural substrates of mnemonic techniques, which could broaden the scope for memory improvement in the general population and the memory-impaired.
Multiple trace theory of human memory: Computational, neuroimaging, and neuropsychological results
TLDR
Overall, the data support the view that for episodic and spatial detail the hippocampal system is always necessary, and indicate that the standard model of memory consolidation, which views the hippocampus as having only a temporary role in memory, is wrong.
Remembering our past: functional neuroanatomy of recollection of recent and very remote personal events.
TLDR
It was found that context-rich memories were associated with activity in lingual and precuneus gyri independently of their age, and Hippocampal activation was related to the richness of re-experiencing (vividness) rather than the age of the memory per se.
