Episodic memory is a critical component of any computational representation of cognition. While declarative and procedural memory have been extensively studied by the cognitive modeling community, episodic memory has only recently been considered as an important component of cognitive architecture (CA) development. Human neurological evidence supports the concept that memory is stored in the mind in different forms and locations, with episodic memory being critical for learning temporal sequences of events and associating context to learned information. Recent neurological evidence supports the idea that episodic memory is distinct from semantic memory and procedural memory. This paper reviews the current research on episodic memory in neurology and CAs and argues for its inclusion in the Standard Model of Mind.
