How can we recall autobiographical memories? Does our body play any important role in memory retrieval? In this paper I deal with the voluntary retrieval of autobiographical memories within the frame of embodied cognition theories. I summarize the aspects causing the retrieval of autobiographical memories and also consider the circumstances facilitating this retrieval. Although the process of AM retrieval still lies in the field of academic discussion and no comprehensive theory of AM retrieval exists, in this paper I find empirically based evidence of autobiographical memory retrieval of which particular aspects shall come to be highlighted in the way of embodied cognition theories and help us to understand the retrieval processes.
