Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This systematic literature review aimed to understand how the neural basis of prospective memory is assessed with electrophysiology following the PRISMA methodology -Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis. The main focuswas to understand which methods and analyses were used, the oscillatory activity identified, as well as the differences in the neural basis between time-based prospective memory (TPMB) and event-based prospective memory (EBPM). Six studies published between 2011 and 2021 were included. The results highlight important neural bases for prospective memory (MP) such as the anterior cingulate cortex (CCA) and anterior prefrontal cortex (CPFa), as well as relevant neural correlations in the face of prospective memory (e.g., N300, N400, prospective and parietal positivity, etc.). We conclude that the neural basis and correlations found are congruent with those already described in the literature.
