ZIBETTI, Murilo Ricardo; BORDIGNON, Suelen  and  TRENTINI, Clarissa Marceli. Memory and learning in a free and cued selective reminding procedure. Temas psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.4, pp. 771-782. ISSN 1413-389X.

The objective of the study was to verify, in an exploratory way, the factor structure and differences between each trial on instruments that use the procedure Free and Cued Selective Reminding (FCSR). The responses of 83 elderly people to FCSR were retrospectively analyzed. The results suggest that there is an ascending curve between almost all trials in a free recall and no significant differences after second trial in a total remembered. In addition, a three factor solution was observed. Factors 1 and 2 suggest maintaining a division between recovery and storage scores, while the presence of factor 3 suggests the presence of a score that asses a temporary storage of information. There is a hypothesis that factor 3 was related with episodic buffer in working memory. These results serve to better understanding the FCSR and used to develop a new memory test (MAPS Test).
