The neural basis of involuntary episodic memories.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2014-10)
Voluntary episodic memories require an intentional memory search, whereas involuntary episodic memories come to mind spontaneously without conscious effort. Cognitive neuroscience has largely focused on voluntary memory, ...
Recent Advances in Understanding the Reminiscence Bump: The Importance of Cues in Guiding Recall from Autobiographical Memory.
(Curr Dir Psychol Sci, 2016-04-01)
The reminiscence bump is the increased proportion of autobiographical memories from youth and early adulthood observed in adults over 40. It is one of the most robust findings in autobiographical memory research. Although ...
Participant, rater, and computer measures of coherence in posttraumatic stress disorder.
(J Abnorm Psychol, 2016-01)
We examined the coherence of trauma memories in a trauma-exposed community sample of 30 adults with and 30 without posttraumatic stress disorder. The groups had similar categories of traumas and were matched on multiple ...
Changes in neuroticism following trauma exposure.
(J Pers, 2014-04)
Using longitudinal data, the present study examined change in midlife neuroticism following trauma exposure. Our primary analyses included 670 participants (M(age) = 60.55; 65.22% male, 99.70% Caucasian) who completed the ...
Autobiographical memory for stressful events: the role of autobiographical memory in posttraumatic stress disorder.
(Conscious Cogn, 2011-09)
To provide the three-way comparisons needed to test existing theories, we compared (1) most-stressful memories to other memories and (2) involuntary to voluntary memories (3) in 75 community dwelling adults with and 42 without ...
Narrative centrality and negative affectivity: Independent and interactive contributors to stress reactions.
(Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 2014)
One bump, two bumps, three bumps, four? Using retrieval cues to divide one autobiographical memory reminiscence bump into many
(Journal of Applied Research in Memory and Cognition, 2015-01-01)
Differential predictability of four dimensions of affect intensity.
(Cogn Emot, 2012)
Individual differences in affect intensity are typically assessed with the Affect Intensity Measure (AIM). Previous factor analyses suggest that the AIM is comprised of four weakly correlated factors: Positive Affectivity, ...
The temporal distribution of autobiographical memory: changes in reliving and vividness over the life span do not explain the reminiscence bump.
(Mem Cognit, 2011-01)
When autobiographical memories are elicited with word cues, personal events from middle childhood to early adulthood are overrepresented compared to events from other periods. It is, however, unclear whether these memories ...
Age Effects in Cultural Life Scripts.
(Appl Cogn Psychol, 2011-03-01)
Life scripts are culturally shared expectations about the timing of life events in an idealized life course. Because they are cultural semantic knowledge, they should be known by all adult age groups including those who ...
