Abstract
The study intended to examine how context influenced event segmentation and memory based, temporal estimation. Furthermore the study explored correlation between mental illness and event segmentation. A computerized memory test was conducted to investigate how the contexts influenced the estimation of temporal proximity between two objects. The objects were presented with either same context, two different contexts or without context. Self-report questionnaires were utilized to measure depression, anxiety, stress and subjective well-being in order to examine the relationship between mental illness and event segmentation. The number of participants was 67, 35 women and 32 men, with an age-range between 20-71 year. All the participants lived... (More)

The number of participants was 67, 35 women and 32 men, with an age-range between 20-71 year. All the participants lived in Skåne. The results showed that context did influence event segmentation in the sense that temporal proximity was significantly higher when objects were presented with same context than with two different contexts. The change of context represented an event boundary possibly creating two separate events, hence the result of decreased temporal proximity between objects. No significant correlation between event segmentation and mental illness could be detected. In conclusion the current study showed that event segmentation occurs and that context does influence the estimation of temporal proximity. (Less)

Studien avsåg undersöka hur kontext påverkade eventsegmentering och minnesbaserad, temporal bedömning. Vidare undersöktes samband mellan psykiskt mående och förmåga till eventsegmentering. Ett datoriserat minnestest användes för att utforska hur kontext påverkade upplevelsen av temporal närhet mellan två objekt. Objekten hade tidigare presenterats med antingen samma kontext, två olika kontexter eller utan kontext. Självskattningsformulär som avsåg mäta depression, ångest, stress och välmående användes för att undersöka samband mellan psykiskt mående och eventsegmentering. Deltagarantalet var 67, 35 kvinnor och 32 män, med ett åldersspann mellan 20-71 år. Alla deltagare var boende i Skåne. Resultatet visade att kontext påverkade... (More)

Deltagarantalet var 67, 35 kvinnor och 32 män, med ett åldersspann mellan 20-71 år. Alla deltagare var boende i Skåne. Resultatet visade att kontext påverkade eventsegmentering såtillvida att upplevelsen av närhet var signifikant större när objekt presenterats med samma kontext än med olika kontexter. Bytet av kontext representerade en eventgräns och tänktes bilda två separata event vilket resulterade i minskad närhetsupplevelse mellan objekt. Inga signifikanta samband mellan eventsegmentering och psykiskt mående kunde detekteras. Sammantaget påvisade den aktuella studien att eventsegmentering sker och att kontext påverkar upplevelsen av temporal närhet. (Less)
