Episodic Memory

Episodic memory is the conscious recollection or remembering of specific experiences from a person's life. These memories often include the time and place of the experience, as well as a representation of the role the individual remembering played in it. An example of an episodic memory would be recalling the first time you operated a computer, including where and with whom, in contrast to how to operate a computer. Episodic memories seem to be more affected by the passage of time than are procedural or semantic memories such that if the event is not recalled and thought of relatively often, details of the event, if not the event itself, seems to fade or be forgotten over time.
