This chapter describes some of the insights that have impacted on the conceptual understanding of source recollection, focusing on internally and externally generated context; pre- and post-retrieval processing stages; and commonalities between recollection, prospective memory, and mentalizing. These insights center on anterior prefrontal cortex (PFC), a region for which accruing evidence suggests an important role in central cognitive control processes that are relevant to each of these functions.

Keywords: recollection; prospective memory; mentalizing; prefrontal cortex; PFC; cognitive control processes
