An Experimental Study of the Relationship Between Odor-cued Involuntary Autobiographical Memory and Individual Differences in Olfactory Imagery Ability

山本, 晃輔

内容記述
The present study examined the relationship between odor-cued involuntary autobiographical memory and individual differences in olfactory imagery ability. In the experiment conducted, 34 participants completed the Vividness Odor Imagery Questionnaire (VOIQ). After completing a semantic-differential (SD) task for odors, the participants were asked about occurrences of involuntary recollections during the SD task and rated their vividness, emotional arousal, emotional valence (positive-negative), and the importance and frequency of the memory. The results showed that the odor-cued involuntary autobiographical memories were emotional, positive, important, and vivid. In addition, participants with low VOIQ scores recalled more emotional, more important, and more frequent memories than did those with high VOIQ scores. These findings suggest that olfactory imagery ability plays a significant role in odor-cued involuntary autobiographical memory.
