Abstract: The purpose of the present research was to investigate the relationship between depressed affect and the organization and recall of positively and negatively valenced affective information. Experiment 1 examined the clustering and recall performance of inpatient depressives, psychiatric patients, and normals as a function of positive and negative words presented either randomly or in blocked fashion. Experiment 2 examined the recall performance of the same three groups of subjects as a function of positively and negatively valenced words that the subjects either rated or generated in an incidental recall task.
