Trauma-Cueing and Short-Term Memory in College Students with PTSD
Kolts, Russell L.; Lombardo, Thomas W.; Faulkner, Ginger
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v19 n2 p29-47 Oct 2004
A number of studies have revealed short-term memory deficits in individuals with PTSD. The current study sought to extend these findings to a college PTSD population. Additionally, a cueing manipulation was used to examine the effects of trauma-memory cueing on memory in PTSD and control groups. The study utilized a 2 x 2 (PTSD, No PTSD; Trauma-cue, Neutral-cue) design. Following the cueing procedure, 83 students completed various indices of memory and attention. No differences were found on any memory measure as a function of PTSD status, but trauma-cued individuals performed more poorly on the memory task immediately following the cueing procedure.
