Some participants simply listen to auditory descriptions of their memories, while participants in other studies have to actively retrieve a memory in response to a cue word. 3 Scatterplots from the Piloino et al. (2008) PET study that reveal the correlation between rCBF values from right hippocampus areas with the episodic index (left graph) and the correlation between rCBF values from left medial orbital lobe and the spontaneity index (right graph). Each point corresponds to the data for one participant (n ¼ 12).
Positron emission topography (PET) Electromagnetic measures rely on the electrical and magnetic fields generated by neural activity of the brain during memory retrieval. Hemodynamic measures are based on the energy requirements of neural activity and record neural activity indirectly by measuring blood flow and metabolic changes that support these increases in neural activity. Unfortunately, these hemodynamic processes take many seconds to complete, and therefore this approach does not have the temporal resolution possible with EEG recording.
Mace, 2005b, 2007a). The third instance (or category) of involuntary remembering involves the production of traumatic memories. In this retrieval instance, individuals experience traumatic involuntary memories concerning some past traumatic experience. These memories occur repetitively and this type of involuntary remembering is a defining characteristic (or central feature) of post-traumatic stress disorder. It seems reasonable to ask if these divisions in involuntary remembering are merely the constructions of theorists or real natural categories, and if so, what causes the lines of delineation.
