    Jennifer A Sumner
    Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208, USA
    Memory 21:646-56. 2013
    ..Specifically, greater AMS in self-defining memory narratives predicted fewer depressive symptoms at a 10-week follow-up over and above baseline symptom levels. Implications for future research and clinical applications are discussed. ..
  2. pmc The mechanisms underlying overgeneral autobiographical memory: an evaluative review of evidence for the CaR-FA-X model
    Jennifer A Sumner
    Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, 2029 Sheridan Road, Swift Hall, Suite 102, Evanston, IL 60208, USA
    Clin Psychol Rev 32:34-48. 2012
    ..Recommendations for future research that will enhance understanding of the factors that contribute to OGM are suggested...

    Behav Res Ther 48:614-25. 2010
    ..These findings highlight OGM as a predictor of the course of depression, and future studies should investigate the mechanisms underlying this relationship...

    Jennifer A Sumner
    Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208, USA
    Memory 19:169-83. 2011
    ..We found no evidence of interactions between these mechanisms. Findings are interpreted with respect to current autobiographical memory models. Future directions for OGM mechanism research are discussed...

    Jennifer A Sumner
    Northwestern University, Department of Psychology, 2029 Sheridan Road, Suite 102, Evanston, IL 60208, USA
    Cogn Emot 25:183-92. 2011
    ..Thus, our findings suggest that OGM, in interaction with chronic interpersonal stress, predicts the course of depression among adolescents, and highlight the importance of measuring interpersonal stress in OGM research...

    J Behav Ther Exp Psychiatry 43:S21-31. 2012
    ..The AMT has adequate psychometric properties, but there is great variability in methodology across studies that use it. Methodological recommendations and suggestions for future studies are presented...

    Memory 17:609-23. 2009
    ..In addition, item response theory analyses showed that the AMT is most precise for people who score low on memory specificity. Implications for using the AMT with high-functioning samples are discussed...
