Welcome to the Dickerson Lab: Prospective Memory

Document Actions

Prospective memory is an exciting topic of relatively new investigation that focuses on a variety of aspects related to the ability to remember to do things in the future or the ability to envision a future action or situation. There are a number of experimental measures that have been developed to test these abilities, and a few tests have been developed to test these abilities in patients with memory disorders.
