AbstractThe present study aims at examining the relationship between specific memory recall and future event processing. Previous research suggested that the ability in generating specific future events was closely linked with recalling specific past memories. A total of 73 participants (40 in depressed group and 33 healthy control group) completed a specific memory recall and a future event generation task with emotional cues (positive and negative) and a neutral cue. The number of specific responses generated and the mean specific memory latency were recorded for analysis. Result not only replicated previous findings that the depressed group demonstrated more difficulties in generating specific responses, it also provided new insight in exploring the relationship between specific memory recall and future events processing. Firstly, the result indicated that the number of specific responses was fewer and the mean latency of specific responses was longer in generating future events than recalling specific memories. Secondly, the number and the mean latency of specific responses depended on different emotional loaded cues. Further discussion was focused on the valence effect on specific responses. Lastly, it was revealed that depressed patients had a particular difficulty in generating positive future events. Discussion was emphasized on the emotional loaded effect and hopelessness. Both theoretical and clinical implicated were suggested based on the new findings.
