Abstract [sv]

Förekomsten av stressrelaterad ohälsa har ökat de senaste åren. Långvarig stress utan möjligheter till behandling och rehabilitering kan få allvarliga konsekvenser med kognitiva symtom som försämrad minnesfunktion som följd. Episodisk minnesprestation vid stressrelaterad ohälsa har undersökts i en handfull studie och syftet i föreliggande uppsats har varit att undersöka verbal episodisk minnesprestation hos patienter med utmattningssyndrom (UMS). Genom att använda Buschkes selektiva påminnelseprocedur jämfördes en patientgrupp (n = 121) med en frisk kontrollgrupp (n = 60) för att undersöka mått på fri återgivning (RC), långtidsminne (LTR, LL) samt korttidsminne (STR). Resultatet analyserades med mixad ANOVA och visade att patientgruppen presterade marginellt signifikant sämre på ett av måtten för långtidsminne (LTR). På de övriga måtten återfanns inga signifikanta skillnader. Resultatet går i linje med tidigare forskning som också indikerar små eller inga skillnader på verbal episodisk minnesprestation hos patienter med UMS. För klinisk praktik innebär det att de minnesnedsättningar som patienter med UMS upplever inte alltid speglas i kognitiva test.

Abstract [en]

The incidence of stress-related illness has increased in recent years. Prolonged stress without opportunities for treatment and rehabilitation can result in serious consequences with cognitive symtoms such as impaired memory. Episodic memory performance in stress-related illness has been examined in a handful studies and the aim of the present thesis was to study verbal episodic memory performance in patients with exhaustion disorder (ED). By using Buschke selective reminding procedure a patient group (n = 121) was compared with a healthy control group (n = 60) to examine measures for free recall (RC), long-term memory (LTR, LL) and short-term memory (STR). The result was analyzed with mixed ANOVA and showed that the patient group performed marginally significantly worse in one of the measures for long-term memory (LTR). In the remaining measures no significant differences were found. The result is in line with previous research that also indicates small or no differences in verbal episodic memory performance for patients with ED. In clinical practice this implies that the memory impairments that patients with ED experience not always are reflected in cognitive tests.
