Understanding Events

Episodic memories must have beginnings and endings, but these remain unknown. This chapter presents two initial exploratory studies that attempt to identify the beginnings and endings of various recent and remote episodic memories. It also considers the nature of episodic and autobiographical memory, as well as what is known about the perception of event boundaries, which must surely play a role in the formation of memories of experienced events.

Keywords:   event perception, memory, autobiographical memory, event boundaries
