Retrieval‐induced forgetting of autobiographical memory details
TLDR
Two experiments that explored the merits of applying the retrieval practice paradigm to relatively broad categories of autobiographical memories found a significant RIF effect in that practised memories were recalled better than unrelated unpractised (baseline) memories.
Autobiographical memory specificity and the course of major depressive disorder.
TLDR
Autobiographical memory dysfunction in depression appears to be stable over time, is related to short-term prognosis in depression, and may act as a vulnerability factor that influences the long-term course of depressive disorders.
Collaborative recall of details of an emotional film
TLDR
Earlier findings on both collaborative inhibition and error reduction to the recall of affectively laden material are extended and may have implications for the applied fields of forensic and clinical psychology.
Autobiographical Memory Specificity, Intrusive Memory, and General Memory Skills in Dutch–Indonesian Survivors of the World War II Era
TLDR
Earlier findings on intrusive and nonspecific autobiographical memory in depressed samples are extended to a group of people who experienced war atrocities in childhood, and patients produced significantly less specific memories.
Differential recall of central and peripheral details of emotional slides is not a stable phenomenon
TLDR
The results of this experiment were rather complex and did not fully support the predicted differential recall patterns, so it is suggested that other methods may be more suitable for testing the attentional narrowing hypothesis of emotional memory.
Changes in PTSD Patients' Narratives During Prolonged Exposure Therapy: A Replication and Extension
TLDR
It is concluded that narrative changes may be due to exposure treatment itself rather than to changes in memory representation, and improves showed a greater decrease in disorganized thoughts during treatment.
Breaking the cycle of desire: Mindfulness and executive control weaken the relation between an implicit measure of alcohol valence and preoccupation with alcohol-related thoughts.
TLDR
This study examined whether mindfulness and executive control may similarly decouple the relation between automatic affective responses and difficulty in disengaging attention from alcohol-related thoughts, and showed that both trait mindfulness andExecutive control are inversely related with alcohol preoccupation.
