Distinct brain networks for remote episodic memory depending on content and emotional value

Abstract : The mechanisms that underlie the storage of old nontraumatic episodic memories remain enigmatic because of the difficulty in modelling this particular type of memory in humans and animals. Episodic memories combine incidental and occasional “What-Where-When/In which context” multisensory information and can be stored for long periods of time. Here, using a task in rodents that models human episodic memory, including odour/place/context components, we applied advanced behavioural and computational analyses and brain imaging of c-Fos and Zif268 to characterize remote episodic memories and their engrams for the first time. We show that the content and accuracy of memories vary across individuals and depend on the emotional relationship with odours experienced during episodes. Activated brain networks reflect the nature and content of remote episodic memories and their transformation over time, and emotional cortico-hippocampal networks play critical roles in maintaining vivid memories.
