Definition: Episodic memory is a category of long-term memory that involves the memory of specific events, situations and experiences. Your first day of school, your first kiss, attending a friend's birthday party and your brother's graduation are all examples of episodic memories. In addition to your overall memory of the event itself, it also involves your memory of the location and time that the event occurred. Learn more about episodic memory.
