  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The research investigated individual differences in autobiographical events recollection of the childhood amnesia period. Two studies were conducted: in the first study three groups of subjects (8; 12; 18 old) were tested on the events recollection about different childhood periods (0/2-3; 3/6; 6/7-8 years). The second study investigated individual differences about autobiographical recollection in children with social adaptation problems ("toughs"). The first study confirmed the literature data about childhood amnesia. The results obtained from the second study showed that children labelled as "toughs" recollect more events from their past than the others and these events were mainly labelled with negative emotion. The results have been discussed within the models supporting the idea that the lifestyle and the social adaptation could affect the ontogenetic development of episodic autobiographical memory.
