Note-Taking and Information Recall: An Empirical Study
May, Jerry R.; Miller, Paul R.
Journal of Medical Education, 52, 6, 524-5, Jun 77
The amount of recorded information from a medical interview by note-taking was compared with that received with no note-taking. The study with 46 medical students suggests that note-taking facilitates recall and that there is a progressive decay of memory recall with the passage of time between the physician-patient interview and the recording of data.
