Basic and Applied Memory Research: Practical Applications - Vol. 2

By Douglas J. Herrmann; Cathy McEvoy et al. | Go to book overview

that it does not reflect the important components of that process in the real world. We have engaged in certain biases in designing our laboratory procedures, and we recognize that our tasks capture only some characteristics of real-world prospective memory tasks. For example, in general our tasks involve very little planning and are not integrated into one's life space and habitual activities. In principle, however, we believe that the present limitations in prospective memory research do not signal an inescapable problem with using laboratory approaches to studying prospective memory, but rather they underscore the nascent character of prospective memory research. In the future, we need to be especially creative in designing laboratory tasks that capture more characteristics of real-world prospective memory tasks.
