Abstract

Autobiographical memory is a system of memory, derived from personal life, by events and semantics based combination of episodes. It is a type of explicit memory. This study aims to examine the effect of culture and gender on individual’s recall of specific and general events. It analyzed how culture impacted autobiographical memories by analyzing data from 208 participants in a survey. It found that memory is affected by gender and ethnicity, but not by whether the memory is about specific or general events. The result shows that culture does not affect the number of recalled for general memories or specific memories.
