The reconstruction of past experiences influences current perceptions of the self, and the self, in turn, influences how autobiographical memories are reconstructed and retrieved. Thus, the self is largely a manifestation of the myriad ways in which one perceives themself in the moment in relation to the basic experiences and perceptions that constitute one’s existence.
