Recollection of media-mediated past events was examined in 96 healthy participants to investigate the interaction between the age of the subject and the "age" of memories. The results provided evidence that people older than 75 years recall recent events significantly worse than remote ones. Younger participants (47-60 years old) showed the reverse pattern. The implementation of a Markov chains latent-variable stochastic model suggested that reduced efficiency of retrieval rather than storage processes accounts for these results. The findings were interpreted with reference to models of memory trace consolidation, assuming that memory for past public events is dependent on hippocampal structures.
