Abstract [en]

Selective information processing bias has been studied in a few investigations. In a study from 2003, tinnitus patients were found to generate fewer specific autobiographical memories on the autobiographical memory test when compared with a control group.

 Aim of the current study was to replicate this study with a standardized measure of autobiographical memory and also with a control group with depression. We included 30 tinnitus patients and compared the results with a normal hearing ontrol group (N=20) and a depressed control group (n=20) with diagnosed major depression.

Results showed a significant main effect of group for the number of specific positive memories, with the tinnitus group performing worse than the control group. However, the tinnitus group did not differ from the depressed group, even after controlling for age differences. Similar effects were observed for the negative specific memories, with the tinnitus and depressed group reporting fewer specific memories. We conclude that tinnitus patients with significant tinnitus distress perform on par with depressed persons on a test of autobiographical memory functioning.
