Autobiographical Across the Lifespan     2     

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the field of autobiographical memory. Throughout life people remember different events that help to form their self-concept. Due to aging and other factors across the lifespan, one’s ability to form and maintain autobiographical memories is often altered. The different types of autobiographical memories will be defined in this paper. Additionally, different studies that have looked at the effect of age on autobiographical memory will be explored. Finally, the implications of this research will be discussed as the author attempts to explain why autobiographical memory is a crucial social component of a person’s makeup.
