Objective: The study aimed to compare the effects of positive- and negative-induced false-memory and true-memory of people with anxiety-depression symptoms and normal individuals.
Method: In this study, using post-test quasi-experimental design with control group, the participants first completed depression, anxiety and stress scale (DASS) forms. Then, 29 individuals with depression-anxiety symptoms were selected as the experimental group and 29 participants without symptoms were selected as the control group. First, false-memory test in terms of normal mood was taken by members of both groups. Then the two groups in terms of positive and negative mood were assessed by false memory test. The results were analyzed using two-way analysis of variance.
Results: The results showed that the experimental group and the control group were different in terms of recognition and false recall in positive and negative mood, while there was no difference between the two groups in terms of recall and correct recognition.
Conclusion: Positive and negative mood along with depression-anxiety state increases false memory.
