Everyday forgetting experiences: real-time investigations with implications for the study of memory management in brain-damaged patients.
In order to attempt to measure everyday forgetting experiences outside the laboratory, groups of undergraduates, healthy old people, and neuropathological patients with memory complaints were asked to use portable memory diaries. For a period of 7 days, they were immediately to write down every instance of noticing that they had forgotten anything. Types of forgetting, their frequency, and types of cues in the world that served as reminders that forgetting had occurred are discussed.
