Abstract

The final Version of a ''famous events'' test for the assessment of remote memory is presented. The normative sample comprised 428 healthy subjects ranging from 18 to 75 years in age. Subjects were recruited according to census data with respect to age, sex, income, and rural/urban distribution. Only those subjects who had lived within well defined regions of the northwestern part of Germany throughout their lives were investigated. Subjects with a history of CNS disorders or drug abuse were excluded. Thus, subjects in the normative sample definitely had access to the public events in question. Results show that the 22 items of a long version of the remote memory test and the 14 items of anabbreviated version clearly distinguish those subjects who were at least 21 years of age at the time of the event's actuality from those subjects who were less than 10 years of age or who had not yet been bornat that time. The events relate to a time period extending from 1938 to 1993. Items are of comparable difficulty and salience. Reliability scores were adequate. A study of an additional sample of 107 subjects from the southern part of Germany showed equivalent results. By contrast, results obtained with 76 residents of the former German DemocraticRepublic indicated that the test should only be used with people fromthe former Federal Republic of Germany.
