Biographical memory and narrative memory

Can non-biographical memory become biographical memory as it is absorbed and reconstructed in the narrative of memory?

The narrative of memory dialogues with the ‘time of the ‘experience recorded’ and the ‘time of the narrative of remembrance’. Paul Ricoeur in “Time and Narrative” indicates the paradoxalities of the hermeneutic circle between the act of narrating the fact (remembered) and temporal dynamics. What can be understood about the plasticity of time in the dialogues of memory? Something that Ricoeur himself will later explore in “Memory, History and Forgetting”. But would this temporal plasticity be a relevant factor in the transformation of non-biographical memory into biographical memory?
