A remarkable feature of the human mind is its capacity to momentarily disengage from the immediate environment in order to contemplate hypothetical future scenarios. This ability is usually referred to as episodic future thinking (EFT). In the last decade, most research on EFT mainly focused on better understanding the similarities and the differences between EFT and memory. In the present research project we will conduct e series of studies revolving around three main issues that have been largely unexplored. Namely, we will explore what differentiates episodic future thinking from complex scene imagery, the contribution of executive control to EFT, and the relationship between EFT and prospective memory.
