Verbal episodic memory

NICE Guideline NG97 - Dementia: assessment, management and support for people living with dementia and their carers
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

Episodic memories include information about recent or past events and experiences (rather than factual knowledge, or habits and skills). They may be recent, or from the distant past (remote or long-term episodic memory). Tests to assess episodic memory may use either verbal or visual material. Examples of verbal episodic memory tests include reading the person a list of words or a short story and asking them to recall this information, both immediately and after a delay.
