DD303: Autobiographical memory


Made up questions based on the DD303 chapter on autobiographical memory.

  • What are the methodological challenges to studying autobiographical memory?
  • How can we measure autobiographical memories?
  • Why are only some autobiographical memories consciously experienced? Make reference to the ‘working self’ in your answer.

Memory and perception

It’s a shame that the Man, Machine and Memory episode of this history of psychology is no longer available on on iPlayer.  Worth tracking down if you want an easy 15 minutes that highlights links between all of the DD303 memory chapters and back to perception.
