Episodic memory (sometimes called autobiographical memory) lets you remember events that you personally experienced at a specific time and place. It includes memories such as the meal you ate last night, or the name of an old classmate, or the date of some important public event.

The most distinctive feature of episodic memory is that you see yourself as an actor in the events you remember. You therefore memorize not only the events themselves, but also the entire context surrounding them.

Episodic memory is the kind most often affected by various forms of amnesia. Also, the emotional charge that you experience at the time of the events conditions the quality of your memorization of the episode.
