On the response bias explanation of selective memory effects in depression
- 54 Downloads
Response bias is a potentially relevant factor in explaining selective memory effects in depression. It is argued, however, that recent work by Zuroff, Culossy, and Wielgus (1983) does not demonstrate that this potential is in practice actualized. Rather, we conclude that it has not been established that response bias plays any role in the enhancement of negative memory functioning within depression.
