  1. 1. Planning Primates - A search for episodic foresight

    Author : Mathias Osvath; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; language evolution; planning; the Bischof-Köhler hypothesis; comparative episodic foresight; episodic system; autonoetic consciousness; orangutans; chimpanzees;

    Abstract : The ability to plan for future, not currently experienced, mental or physiological states has been regarded as unique to humans. When humans plan for such states it has been hypothesized that they make use of what has been known as episodic foresight. READ MORE

  2. 2. Brain activity associated with episodic memory : similarities and differences between encoding and retrieval

    Author : Jonas Persson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Episodic memory; encoding; retrieval; positron emission tomography PET ; enactment; overlap; retrieval mode; retrieval success; novelty;

    Abstract : Understanding the mnemonic functions of the brain has been extensively facilitated by the development of functional neuroimaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The present thesis aims at investigating the neural mechanisms underlying memory for personally experienced events (episodic memory), using PET. READ MORE

  4. 4. How the past becomes present : neural mechanisms governing retrieval from episodic memory

    Abstract : Remembering previously experienced events can happen as a result of an effortful retrieval attempt. At other occasions, a memory can enter our minds without any apparent effort – or, indeed, intention - to retrieve. READ MORE
