I must remember tomorrow to make an appointment at the doctors or I must send my cousin a birthday congratulations message on Tuesday are two examples of prospective memory. This book investigates the mechanisms and processes that make this type of remembering possible. It takes a simple scenario consisting of an event-based task and a time-based task and looks at how the functioning of cognitive capabilities such as attention and working memory change during the different stages. The book also suggests ways of improving the skills required and looks at psychological testing methods including The Prospective Remembering Fan Fiction Test.
