An involuntary memory research method



A wide range of publications in domestic scientific literature, where the paradigm related to the classical studies of P. I. Zinchenko and A. A. Smirnov dominates in the vast majority of research, as well as in foreign thematic publications devoted to the study of involuntary memory. At the same time, the efficiency of involuntary memorization is an important part of almost any professional activity, and, therefore, studies on this issue are of great practical importance. The result of the generalization of experimental data is proposed by the authors of the present work: the method of the study of involuntary memorization, which is a constituent part of the program of professional evaluation.
