What is it about?

Humans recount their memories in different ways. Some individuals recall more of the sensory details that convey a re-experiencing of an event, whereas other individuals recall the contextual details and how the event is situated among other life experiences. A robust finding is that adults tend to do more of the latter as they enter older adulthood. Here we ask whether patterns of brain connectivity are associated with recollective styles in younger and older adults.

Why is it important?

This work ties together a number of methodological advances to look at how variation in brain circuits are associated with variation in how humans recall the past. In doing so, we provide a high resolution map of connectivity within these circuits in younger and older adults.
