Study of Everyday Memory Errors

Memory Study – Volunteers Wanted

University of Hertfordshire Psychology Research Project on Memory Errors in Everyday Life

Jump to enquiry form

  • Are you interested in monitoring your memory in everyday life? 
  • Are you in good health, and able to hear clearly over the telephone? 
  • Is English your first language?
  • Do you have access to a phone (landline or mobile)?
  • Are you based in the UK?

If your answer to the above questions is yes and you are prepared to take part in this project your help will be very much appreciated. By taking part in this study you may provide us with valuable information about how memory operates in everyday life and the changes that may occur in memory processes, as people get older.

We  will ask you to keep a diary of your memory lapses during everyday life for a period of seven days. Diaries will be pocket size paper diaries, or a smartphone app (on an Apple iPhone or an Android phone – e.g. a Samsung, HTC, Sony etc.).

Participation is voluntary and you will be free to withdraw from the interviews or diary keeping at any stage if you wish to do so, without having to offer any explanation. All information and data collected will of course be treated in strictest confidence.

Please complete the enquiry form to express your interest or phone Andrew Laughland on 01707 286587 for more information.

This study has been approved by the University of Hertfordshire Department of Psychology Ethics Committee. Registration Protocol Number: PSY/12/12/AL
