Abstract:
The differences between bipolar-diagnosed and non-clinical control participants were investigated for three memory processes: mood-dependent memory, mood-congruent memory and autobiographical memory perception. Fifty-eight participants generated six autobiographical memories after receiving a positive mood induction and rated them in a number of ways. They also saw four inkblots. After receiving the same or a contrasting mood induction, participants recalled and re-rated the autobiographical memories and attempted to recognise the inkblots. There were significant differences in inkblot recognition amongst the groups, showing mood-dependent memory. Mood congruent judgment was observed for some of the memory ratings. This study paves the way for further investigation into memory differences of this sort in mood disorders.
