Kins, 1976; Williams, 1966). An evolved system, defined with respect to functionality, consists of those component processes--and their coordinated interactions--that are necessary to accomplish a specific adaptive task. We suggest that many features of human memory systems have been designed by evolution, in part, to interface with systems for long-term planning. For an organism to behave more a

Argued that although survival is not high on the participants' list of things that they associate with being on a camping trip, survival-related thought and emotion play a larger role in planning for a trip. Since planning is the focal element of the present study, we decided to repeat our pretest with a new set of participants (N = 18) and a slight change in the instructions. The participants we

We argue that when memory is so engaged, its performance should be especially efficient. Our prediction draws on

Ummary, although it is always possible to argue that survival concerns play a nonconscious role in cognition about camping (whether in the past, present, or future), the participants' subjective reports revealed little, if any, conscious concern with survival in the camping setting. On the basis of these findings, and the arguments presented above, we predicted that the recall performance associa

Pay attention to all of the feelings and thoughts that go through your
