CRAM (Cue-Recalled Autobiographical Memory) Test.

Welcome to the CRAM test! The aim of this test is to quantify measurable aspects of human autobiographical memories. Autobiographical memories are recollections of past episodes directly experienced by the subject.

We now have completed tests in the database correpsonding to memories!

Due to some technical problems the test is not functional.

In the meanwhile you could download and use the fully functional XL-based version of the test .

Also, you could take a look at the research papers that arose thanks to this data:

Quantitative Measurements of Autobiographical Memory Content - Robert S. Gardner, Adam T. Vogel1, Matteo Mainetti, Giorgio A. Ascoli.

The Natural Frequency of Human Prospective Memory Increases With Age - Robert S. Gardner, Giorgio A. Ascoli.

Older Adults Report Moderatly Moredetailed Autobiographical Memories - Robert S. Gardner, Matteo Mainetti, Giorgio A. Ascoli.

"Just what do you remember?" asks the doctor...


This site is dedicated to measuring the quantitative dimensions of autobiographical memories across the population. The line graphs represent the distribution of memories across a life-span (top = all memories, middle = age differences, and bottom = female v. male) while the bar graph is a graphical example of the dynamics of different elements in a memory. The data was largely acquired from undergraduates and thus samples only a refined group of the population. Since the launching of this site data has been collected from all over the world across all age groups. After completing the full version test you will be able to compare your results with our memory database.
