Special Issue: Prospective Memory
Guest Editor: Mathieu Hainselin, PhD, Centre de Recherche en Psychologie: Cognition, Psychisme et Organisations, Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, France
Prospective Memory (PM) is generally defined as “memory for actions to perform at a defined time in the future”, but recent publications discussed this definition to specify it. PM is the most common cognitive complaint after 50 years old, and everybody asked him/herself one in a while “I have something to do, but do not remember what it is” or “I should have done that before, why did not I remember it at the appropriate moment”.
After 25 years of specific research in this area, there is still a growing interest about PM (8 publications in 1994, 17 in 2004, 122 in 2014 according to PubMed). Experimental and Clinical Psychology, Neuropsychology, Medicine, Neuroscience and Education developed different methods to explore and understand PM through lifespan, for healthy participants or patients.
However, there is still no rehabilitation programs with high level of evidence nor consensus about explicative model of PM functioning.
This special issue on PM will bring together research on the evaluation, rehabilitation, brain substrates, emotional factors and models from different fields.
