In this study we examined whether the temporal distribution of autobiographical memory changes when different types of cue words are used to elicit the memories, and how the type of cue word affects the phenomenal characteristics of the memories. A total of 76 participants, ranging in age from 21 to 69 years, were presented with 22 cue words (emotional, emotion-provoking, and neutral). They were asked to recall a personal event and to complete the Autobiographical Memory Questionnaire (Rubin… 
Phenomenological characteristics of autobiographical memory in Korsakoff’s syndrome
TLDR
Although the findings suggest compromised phenomenological reliving of autobiographical memory in patients with KS, affective characteristics such as emotion and importance are likely to play a main role in the subjective experience of the past in these patients.
More emotional facial expressions during episodic than during semantic autobiographical retrieval
TLDR
Insight is provided into facial expressions that are associated with emotional autobiographical memory that may be detected during autobiographical recall and an ecological tool is highlighted to reveal physiological changes that is associated with emotion and memory.
Sense of purpose in life, cognitive function, and the phenomenology of autobiographical memory
TLDR
The present research suggests that individuals with a higher sense of purpose in life have autobiographical memories with richer phenomenology, and rich phenomenology may be one pathway through which purpose leads to these better outcomes.
Death Keeps No Calendar: The Temporal Distribution of Autobiographical Memories Kept in Death
Past research on applying basic principles of memory to the fundamental task of remembering one's personal past shows a clear preference for memories from late adolescence to early adulthood. The
Remembering online and offline: the effects of retrieval contexts, cues, and intervals on autobiographical memory.
TLDR
It appears that memories recalled on social media are subject to greater reconstruction in subsequent offline recall, and that the timing of recall and the presence of memory cues interact with the reconstructive process.
The relation between verbal and visuospatial memory and autobiographical memory
TLDR
To assert whether participants with stronger cognitive abilities also perform better on autobiographical memory tests, participants who completed verbal and visuospatial memory tests also recorded one personal event, which they recalled after a certain interval.
Eye movement during retrieval of emotional autobiographical memories.
TLDR
Eye movement during autobiographical retrieval seems to be triggered by the creation of visual mental images as the latter are indexed by autobiographical reconstruction.
Introduction to the Cognitive Abilities Account for the Reminiscence Bump in the Temporal Distribution of Autobiographical Memory
  • S. Janssen

TLDR
It was only recently shown that cognitive abilities are indeed related to autobiographical memory performance, which suggests that the cognitive abilities account is a promising explanation for the reminiscence bump in the temporal distribution of word-cued memories.
The reminiscence bump in autobiographical memory and for public events: A comparison across different cueing methods
TLDR
The bump for autobiographical memories versus the bump for memories of public events was compared between-subjects, and did not yield support for any of the dominant existing accounts of the bump as underlying the bump in word-cued memories.
The face of memory: experiential avoidance and facial expressions during the retrieval of autobiographical memories
ABSTRACT Experiential avoidance refers to attempts to control or suppress unwanted thoughts, feelings and emotions. We investigated whether experiential avoidance is associated with fewer facial

The temporal distribution of autobiographical memory: changes in reliving and vividness over the life span do not explain the reminiscence bump
TLDR
The memories from the period in which the participants were between 6 and 20 years old were not relived more or recalled more vividly than memories from other lifetime periods, suggesting that they do not involve more recollection.
Belief and recollection of autobiographical memories
TLDR
It was found that highly relived memories almost always had strong visual images and thatremember/know judgments made on autobiographical memories were more closely related to belief than to recollection.

TLDR
Investigating whether a reminiscence bump is found in autobiographical memory in Japanese elders and the features and content of autobiographical memories in general and in the bump showed that although a Reminiscences bump emerged, memories within the bump did not differ from other memories in terms of rated features nor in content.
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.
Emotional intensity predicts autobiographical memory experience
TLDR
Intensity was a more consistent predictor of autobiographical memory properties than was valence or the age of the memory in these experiments and the general effects of emotion on autobiographies memory properties are due primarily to intensity differences in emotional experience.
The reminiscence bump in autobiographical memory: Effects of age, gender, education, and culture
TLDR
There is strong evidence for a “reminiscence bump” in all participant groups at all ages, with peaks at ages 15–18 for men and 13–14 for women, and this peak could be localised more precisely than in previous studies due to the large sample size.
Reminiscence Bump in Autobiographical Memory: Unexplained by Novelty, Emotionality, Valence, or Importance of Personal Events
TLDR
Surprisingly, the reminiscence bump consisted of relatively fewer novel, emotional, important positive or negative events, increasing the likelihood of an alternative explanation—namely, that memory is generally enhanced in adolescence and early adulthood.
Distribution of important and word-cued autobiographical memories in 20-, 35-, and 70-year-old adults.
TLDR
For word-cued autobiographical memories, older adults had an increase from the ages 10 to 30 and a power-function retention for memories from the most recent 10 years and there were no consistent differences in reaction times and rating scale responses across decades.
Life scripts for emotionally charged autobiographical memories: A cultural explanation of the reminiscence bump
TLDR
It was suggested that the life scripts can be used as an alternative account for the reminiscence bump, for highly positive and occasionally for negative autobiographical memories.
