Howe, Mark L. and Malone, Catherine (2011) Mood-congruent true and false memory: Effects of depression. Memory, 19 (2). pp. 192-201. ISSN 0965-8211Full text not available from this repository.
The Deese/Roediger-McDermott paradigm was used to investigate the effect of depression on true and false recognition. In this experiment true and false recognition was examined across positive, neutral, negative, and depression-relevant lists for individuals with and without a diagnosis of major depressive disorder. Results showed that participants with major depressive disorder falsely recognised significantly more depression-relevant words than non-depressed controls. These findings also parallel recent research using recall instead of recognition and show that there are clear mood congruence effects for depression on false memory performance.
