Abstract

本研究では匂いの同定しやすさ(同定率),快・不快(感情価),日頃嗅ぐ頻度(接触頻度)が匂いからの無意図的想起の生起要因となるかを検討した.74名の参加者にさまざまな匂いを提示して,<i>SD</i>評定を求めた.その後,評定中に自伝的記憶を意図せずに想起したかを尋ねた.その結果,接触頻度の高い匂いほど無意図的想起が生じやすかった.しかし同定率や感情価は無意図的想起の有無と関連がなかった.この結果は,匂いからの無意図的想起では言語表象を介した活性化が生じないこと,無意図的想起は手がかりの種類によって想起過程が異なることを示唆する.

This study examines whether the involuntary recollection of an autobiographical memory elicited from an odor cue is determined by cue identifiability, emotional valence, or frequency of everyday encounters. After a semantic-differential (<i>SD</i>) task for various odors, participants (<i>N</i>=74) were asked about occurrences of involuntary recollections during the <i>SD</i> task. The results revealed that more frequently encountered odors were more likely to trigger involuntary recollections. However, no effects were observed for identifiability or emotional valence. These findings suggest that odor cues induce involuntary recollections in a non-verbal manner and that the process of involuntary recollection varies according to cue type.
