Recent studies of episodic memory using functional neuroimaging techniques indicate that right prefrontal cortex (PFC) is activated while people remember events. Our review suggests that left PFC is also activated during remembering, depending on the reflective demands of the task. As more, or more complex, reflective processes are required (e.g. when criteria for evaluation have to be established and maintained, when the complexity of the evaluation required increases, and when retrieval of… CONTINUE READING
