I've looked up episodic memory, and the two seem similar. Surprisingly, the article says nothing about the action recall in episodic memory en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Episodic_memory

After reviewing the articles, it seems like they go in the right direction and mention the setting as one of the factors, but without specifics. I'm more interested in factors that are not perceived consciously and are passively perceived
