Abstract
The medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) has consistently been shown to play a role in autobiographical memory (AM) recall, for reviews, see refs 1, 2, 3, 4, recollection of self-relevant information5,6,7,8, the imagination of novel scenarios, for reviews, see refs 9 and 10, emotional regulation during autobiographical memory recall11,12 and linking self-relevance and value13,14, with the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC), in particular, being reliably involved. Whilst this highlights that mPFC has an important role in AM and imagery, it remains unclear exactly what functional role it provides. It is well-established that mPFC also plays a role in representing t...
