Reminiscence and Motivation



The experiments described in this chapter are of particular interest, for two reasons. In the first place, reminiscence seems to be a particularly stable and sensitive index of motivation; the well-known difficulty of finding many such indicators suggests that we should cherish those we have found with particular care. In the second place, the use of motivation as the independent variable in our experimental design enables us to perform what seem crucial experiments to decide between the inhibition and the consolidation theories.
