Introduction
However, the hippocampus is preferentially engaged by imagining future events relative to
remembering past ones. We recently showed that anterior and posterior hippocampal
clusters are more active for later-remembered (and therefore successfully encoded)
imagined future events than for later-forgotten ones. This finding suggests that increased
hippocampal activity seen for imagined future events is due, at least in part, to the
imagined events being encoded into memory.
Methods
Participants
25 adults (12 males), aged 18-35.
Recombination Paradigm
In a pre-scan interview, participants generated 110 past episodic events and identified a
prominent person, place, and object in each.
