Episodic memory

Forming episodic memories involves three steps:


  • involves receiving and processing information
  • the more 34  given to an event, the more successfully it can be encoded
  • to remember a 35  , it is useful to have a strategy for encoding such information


  • how memories are strengthened and stored
  • most effective when memories can be added to a 36  of related information
  • the 37  of retrieval affects the strength of memories


  • memory retrieval often depends on using a prompt, e.g. the 38  of an object near to the place where you left your car

  • these affect people with a wide range of medical conditions
  • games which stimulate the 39  have been found to help people with schizophrenia
  • children with autism may have difficulty forming episodic memories - possibly because their concept of the 40  may be absent
