Recollection of repeated dental visits

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Pär-Anders Granhag - University of Gothenburg, Department of Psychology orcid

Rebecca Willén - University of Gothenburg, Department of Psychology

Description:

Dental care patients (n=95) participated in a quasi-experiment during 2012 in Sweden. The respondents were interviewed twice about dental visits they had made between 2002 and 2012. For verification purposes, the narratives were compared to the dental records. The data can be reused to further analyse memory for repeated events. It can be used as experimental data (including both interviews) or as single interview data (including data from only the first interview).

Purpose:

The main purpose is twofold. First, to empirically investigate the effectiveness of context-specific cues on adults’ memories of events they had experienced repeatedly. The second main purpose was to shed light on methodological issues in re-search on memory for repeated events by exploring whether factors such as rehearsal, interviewee age, and number of experienced events had different effects on the two measures of specificity.
