Prospective metacognitive judgments: Memory experiment

968839-36191ff8-b804-11e4-b41b-d516c533d6a5One more psychology experiment that you can participate in if you are willing! This one is a little different though – it’s about metacognitive judgments that you can make while studying information and how accurate these are at predicting your later memory performance.

Full details are provided on the first page of the study.

Are obsessive-compulsive checking behaviours related to impaired performance on prospective memory or metacognitive tasks?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety-producing condition, characterised by repetitive compulsions and intrusive thoughts. Research by Cuttler and Graf (2007; 2008; 2009) indicates that impaired prospective memory (PM) could be responsible for obsessive-compulsive checking behaviours. PM is our memory to carry out an intended action in the future. For example, an event-based prospective memory may be remembering to post a letter when we next see a post-box; whilst a time-based prospective memory may be remember to call someone at 4 pm. PM tasks involve metacognitive monitoring, though little research has looked at traditional metacognitive monitoring tasks within OCD.

Until now….!

Jamie Adams, a student working with me this year, is conducting a research study looking at memory checking behaviours and metacognitive monitoring. We are looking for participants across the range of checking behaviours, whether you think you have any OCD tendencies or none at all you can participate:
