Prospective memory in schizophrenia: The impact of varying retrospective-memory load


Altgassen, M; Kliegel, M; Rendell, P; Henry, J D; Zöllig, J (2008). Prospective memory in schizophrenia: The impact of varying retrospective-memory load. Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology, 30(7):777-788.

Abstract

The present study investigated event-based prospective memory in individuals with schizophrenia (n = 23) and healthy controls (n = 23). The retrospective-memory load was varied to disentangle the relative contributions of the retrospective and prospective components on prospective-memory functioning. A generalized prospectivememory deficit in schizophrenia emerged, with significant impairment evident even when retrospective-memory demands were minimal. Exploratory analyses suggest that both the retrospective and the prospective components contribute to the prospective-memory deficit in schizophrenia.
