The authoress investigated the role of emotional and metacognitive components in the prediction of autobiographical memory and tried to confirm that people use cyclic temporal schema to date the events. Three subjects wrote down two important events every day during three months. Each event was estimated on five scales: arousal, emotionality, importance, length of the sequence and probability of rehearsal. She wondered if those variables would predict accuracy in dating the events. Only age of the events was a good predictor for remembering the events. There was no difference in remembering positive and negative events. Thus a hypothesis stating that people use week schema for the events from near past is confirmed.
