Abstract

This thesis comprises three studies investigating Prospective Memory (PM) in Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), with the aims
of: 1) Meta-analytically reviewing the current literature with respect to neuropsychological predictors of everyday functional outcomes following ABI; 2) Comprehensively measuring PM in an ABI population to evaluate the extent to which PM can predict everyday functioning; and 3) exploring the extent to which brief interventions can improve PM performance amongst individuals recovering from ABI.This thesis contributes to the PM literature, and highlights the need for future research to further develop a promising area of study, and support a complex, at-risk population.
