Flashbulb memories for Paris attacks in an alcohol-abstinent patient

Abstract : Alcohol-dependence has been associated with difficulty to retrieve specific autobiographical memories. Our paper investigated whether this difficulty is also observed for flashbulb memories in an alcohol-abstinent patient. Using a directed interview technique, we assessed flashbulb memories for the Paris attacks in a patient who had been abstinent for two years. Our patient demonstrated reliable recall of event memory (i.e., the attacks). He also provided fair details about how he first became aware of the attacks (i.e., high flashbulb memories). Our patient also succeeded to answer questions about where he was, with who he was, and what day of the week/time it was when he first learned about the attacks. Moreover, the patient demonstrated fair subjective reliving. Together, flashbulb memories seem to trigger high recall as well as extensive reliving in alcohol-abstinent subjects, at least in our participant.
