Abstract

Temporal context plays a key role in episodic memory recall. However, there is uncertainty about how it is structured, and how this structure affects recall. Although it is known that episodic memory performance tends to decline with age, it is less certain whether this can be attributed to variation to the role of temporal context as we age. Finally, there is inconsistency between the patterns of recall typically associated with episodic memory and the patterns associated with prioritisation. We aimed to understand the structure and role of temporal context to better understand how it is related to episodic memory performance.
