The medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC) is regarded as a region of the brain that supports self-referential processes, including the integration of sensory information with self-knowledge and the retrieval of autobiographical information. I used functional magnetic resonance imaging and a novel procedure for eliciting autobiographical memories with excerpts of popular music dating to one's extended childhood to test the hypothesis that music and autobiographical memories are integrated in the MPFC… Expand
Damage to the Medial Prefrontal Cortex Impairs Music-Evoked Autobiographical Memories
Familiar music contains salient cues that often evoke vivid and emotionally powerful autobiographical memories. Prior work suggests that memories evoked by music may be different from memories evokedExpand
Differential neural activity during search of specific and general autobiographical memories elicited by musical cues
TLDR
The results suggest that the initial search processes for memories of different specificity levels preferentially engage different components of the autobiographical memory network and the potential underlying causes of these neural differences are discussed. Expand
Phenomenological Differences in Music- and Television-Evoked Autobiographical Memories
Music can be a potent cue for autobiographical memories in both everyday and clinical settings. Understanding the extent to which music may have privileged access to aspects of our personal historiesExpand
Music evokes vivid autobiographical memories
TLDR
The results show that music not only effectively evokes autobiographical memories, but that these memories are more vivid than those evoked by famous faces. Expand
The effects of song familiarity and age on phenomenological characteristics and neural recruitment during autobiographical memory retrieval.
TLDR
Behavioral and neuroimaging findings suggest age differences in familiarity-related effects in which familiarity was more associated with enhancement of memory detail in young adults and affective positivity in older adults. Expand
Dynamics of brain activity underlying working memory for music in a naturalistic condition
TLDR
Effective connectivity and agglomerative hierarchical clustering analyses indicate that the hippocampal connectivity is modulated by motif repetitions, showing strong connections with WM-relevant areas, which supports the role of the hippocampus in the encoding of the musical motifs in WM, and may evidence long-term memory (LTM) formation, enabled by the use of a realistic listening condition.

TLDR
A meta-analysis of the neuroimaging literature revealed both overlapping and non-overlapping areas of auditory cortex, with a tendency for melodic and harmonic manipulations to activate areas outside the primary auditory cortex. Expand
Emotional cue effects on accessing and elaborating upon autobiographical memories
TLDR
While arousal and valence levels of the retrieval cues, as well as the evoked physiological responses, significantly predicted the reaction time to access a memory, only cue arousal predicted how detailed the representations were constructed. Expand
A Comparison between the Cognitive and Emotional Qualities of Music-Evoked Autobiographical Memories and Film-Evoked Autobiographical Memories
Music is a prominent aspect of our lives and is therefore intertwined with many memories and emotions from our past. However, little research has investigated whether these memories are different toExpand
Music-evoked autobiographical memories in everyday life
Music can be a particularly effective cue for bringing one back to the sights and sounds of events from across the lifespan. These music-evoked autobiographical memories (MEAMs) have typically beenExpand

Characterisation of music-evoked autobiographical memories
TLDR
It is shown that excerpts of popular music serve as potent stimuli for studying the structure of autobiographical memories, and several social and situational contexts for memory formation were common across many memories. Expand
Differential remoteness and emotional tone modulate the neural correlates of autobiographical memory.
TLDR
The findings support the 'classic' model of long-term memory processing, which suggests a time-limited differential involvement of the hippocampus in memory consolidation, and suggest differential functional roles for temporal, prefrontal and retrosplenial regions during autobiographical memory retrieval depending on the remoteness and the emotional valence of the memories retrieved. Expand
The functional neuroanatomy of autobiographical memory: A meta-analysis
TLDR
The findings support a neural distinction between episodic and semantic memory in AM, and it is found that memory age effects on medial temporal lobe structures may be modulated by qualitative aspects of memory. Expand
The Functional Neuroanatomy of Episodic and Semantic Autobiographical Remembering: A Prospective Functional MRI Study
TLDR
A functional neuroanatomical dissociation between episodic and semantic autobiographical memory is supported, providing concordance to amnesic syndromes with disproportionate impairment in one of these two forms of autobiographicalmemory. Expand
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. Expand
Autobiographical and episodic memory—one and the same? Evidence from prefrontal activation in neuroimaging studies
TLDR
The present analysis suggests that care and caution should be exercised in extrapolating from the way the authors recollect 'events' from a list learned in the laboratory to the way that events from their lives are recollected. Expand
Investigating emotion with music: An fMRI study
TLDR
In all of the mentioned structures, except the hippocampus, activations increased over time during the presentation of the musical stimuli, indicating that the effects of emotion processing have temporal dynamics; the temporal dynamics have so far mainly been neglected in the functional imaging literature. Expand
Brain Activity during Episodic Retrieval of Autobiographical and Laboratory Events: An fMRI Study using a Novel Photo Paradigm
TLDR
Compared with the controlled laboratory condition, the controlled autobiographical condition elicited greater activity in regions associated with self-referential processing (medial prefrontal cortex), visual/ spatial memory (visual and parahippocampal regions), and recollection (hippocampus). Expand
Recollective qualities modulate hippocampal activation during autobiographical memory retrieval
TLDR
Reclective qualities are important predictors of hippocampal engagement during AM retrieval independent of factors such as recency, which are consistent with theories of hippocampusal function that emphasize its role in the recollection of multifaceted autobiographical experiences. Expand

TLDR
Very early evidence is emerging from the literature for the hypothesis that the rostral medial prefrontal cortex is a node that is important for binding music with memories within a broader music‐responsive network. Expand
