Prospective memory (PM) involves the ability to form and realize intentions after a time delay (Einstein & McDaniel, 1990). This study examines the relationship between clinical measures of PM and an event-related potential paradigm (West & Ross-Munroe, 2002) before and after Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy (CRT). Participants with traumatic brain injury (TBI) were assigned to one of two groups, CRT and an active control condition. Electrophysiological and behavioral data were collected while subjects performed a computerized PM measure and the Memory for Intentions Screening Test (MIST) (Raskin, Buckheit, & Sherrod, 2011), a clinical measure. The results from the two groups were compared to determine physiological and clinical change as a result of treatment.
