Telescoping is not time compression: a model of the dating of autobiographical events.
(Mem Cognit, 1989-11)
A model of telescoping is proposed that assumes no systematic errors in dating. Rather, the overestimation of recent occurrences of events is based on the combination of three factors: (1) Retention is greater for recent ...
Story recall by mentally retarded children.
(Psychol Rep, 1983-12)
Cross-cultural variability of component processes in autobiographical remembering: Japan, Turkey, and the USA.
Although the underlying mechanics of autobiographical memory may be identical across cultures, the processing of information differs. Undergraduates from Japan, Turkey, and the USA rated 30 autobiographical memories on 15 ...
Regulation of spine structural plasticity by Arc/Arg3.1.
(Seminars in cell & developmental biology, 2018-05)
Dendritic spines are actin-rich, postsynaptic protrusions that contact presynaptic terminals to form excitatory chemical synapses. These synaptic contacts are widely believed to be the sites of memory formation and information ...
Event memory: A theory of memory for laboratory, autobiographical, and fictional events.
(Psychol Rev, 2015-01)
An event memory is a mental construction of a scene recalled as a single occurrence. It therefore requires the hippocampus and ventral visual stream needed for all scene construction. The construction need not come with ...
Less wiring, more firing: low-performing older adults compensate for impaired white matter with greater neural activity.
(Cereb Cortex, 2015-04)
The reliable neuroimaging finding that older adults often show greater activity (over-recruitment) than younger adults is typically attributed to compensation. Yet, the neural mechanisms of over-recruitment in older adults ...
Inhibition-Induced Forgetting Results from Resource Competition between Response Inhibition and Memory Encoding Processes.
(J Neurosci, 2015-08-26)
UNLABELLED: Response inhibition is a key component of executive control, but its relation to other cognitive processes is not well understood. We recently documented the "inhibition-induced forgetting effect": no-go cues ...
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 ...
The effects of song familiarity and age on phenomenological characteristics and neural recruitment during autobiographical memory retrieval.
Recent research suggests that emotional music clips can serve as a highly successful tool for eliciting rich autobiographical memories, and that the utility of these cues may be related to their subjective familiarity. The ...
