Many laboratory studies have demonstrated an age effect on episodic memory which is in contrast with the preservation of semantic memory. The aim of this study was the assessment of age effects on autobiographical memory according to the length of the retention interval, taking into account the episodic and semantic components. A total of 52 subjects, aged between 40 and 79, were divided into four age groups. They were tested with a sophisticated autobiographical questionnaire consisting of two… 
pisodic , but not semantic , autobiographical memory is reduced in amnestic ild cognitive impairment
Amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) is characterized by decline in anterograde memory as measured by the ability to learn and remember new information. We investigated whether retrograde memory
Autobiographical Memory and Autoneotic Consciousness in a case of Semantic Dementia
TLDR
The findings from a patient (AT) at the early stage of semantic dementia provide further evidence that strictly episodic recollection is restricted to the recent past in SD.
Personal semantic and episodic autobiographical memories in Korsakoff syndrome: A comparison of interview methods.
TLDR
The temporal gradient in Korsakoff patients is not an artefact of either the AMI or the AI method, and the pattern of amnesia in Korkoff patients was not affected by examining only one event per life-period.
The semantic and episodic subcomponents of famous person knowledge: dissociation in healthy subjects.
TLDR
The present findings confirm the existence of an episodic-semantic distinction in knowledge about famous people and provide further evidence that personal source and semantic information are at once distinct and highly interactive within the framework of remote memory.
Age effects in autobiographical memory depend on the measure
TLDR
There was significant variance in the tests’ sensitivity to age: word-cued autobiographical memory produced the largest deficit in older adults, similar in magnitude to word-list recall, and older adults performed comparatively well on the other measures.

Remote memory: recalling autobiographical and public events from across the lifespan.
TLDR
The results indicated that memory for public events decreases with increased age of the subject, but this effect is not generally found for the recall of autobiographical events, unlike those models that posit general memory loss as a function of age or of remoteness of the events.
Episodic and semantic contributions to older adults' autobiographical recall.
TLDR
The authors discuss the implications of this finding concerning the purported bases of the reminiscence bump and the retention effect as well as the notion that aging is more likely to effect episodic memory than semantic memory.
Autobiographical memory across the lifespan.
Introduction Autobiographical memory is a topic that inherently involves a lifespan approach. The development of autobiographical memory in the individual raises issues starting with childhood
Reminiscence and autobiographical memory in the study of the personal past.
TLDR
The hypothesis that persons who actively reminisce would respond more quickly and with more remote memories in the autobiographical memory task was not supported and significant increases in age differences in memory for past personal experiences were found.
The autobiographical memory interview: a new assessment of autobiographical and personal semantic memory in amnesic patients.
TLDR
The findings indicate that autobiographical and personal semantic memory show a consistent pattern of impairment, when a comparison is made which controls for the age of the memories and the subject's own past experience.
Organization in autobiographical memory
TLDR
One way in which autobiographical memories may be organized is in terms of a hierarchically structured abstracted personal history, as found in three experiments investigated timed autobiographical memory retrieval to cues.
Episodic memory and autonoetic consciousness: developmental evidence and a theory of childhood amnesia.
TLDR
It is argued that between 3 to 6 years children develop the ability to remember events as experienced and that this development can explain adults' inability to have recollective experiences of childhood events before that age (childhood amnesia).
There is more to episodic memory than just episodes
Recently many theorists have viewed life periods as a central organizing component of autobiographical memory. We resurrect some of our old unpublished research exploring the utility of
Personal Context in Autobiographical and Narrative Memories
The concepts of autobiographical memory and episodic memory are examined. Since the study of autobiographical memory was revitalised in the 1980s, its relation to the strong tradition of verbal
