2004 (English)In: Journal of Psychosomatic Research, ISSN 0022-3999, E-ISSN 1879-1360, Vol. 57, no 4, 363-366 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Objective Previous research has shown that several clinical groups have difficulties with generating specific autobiographical memories. The aim of this study was to investigate autobiographical memory function in women who had been treated for breast cancer and to compare those patients who had undergone mastectomy only with those who had undergone breast reconstruction surgery after mastectomy. Method A sample of 26 women treated for breast cancer were tested via telephone using the Autobiographical Memory Test (AMT). Results Breast cancer patients had difficulty retrieving specific autobiographical memories compared to a group of age-matched controls without any history of breast cancer. There were essentially no differences between the two patient groups. Conclusion Since breast cancer patients are vulnerable to emotional distress, autobiographical memory deficits should be investigated further. © 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
