Abstract: Clinicians are often confronted with the self-report of memory difficulties by patients. This study explored the possible correlates of subjective memory in 67 adult Chinese patients with epilepsy in Hong Kong. These correlates include epilepsy-related factors, mood state, and actual performance on neuropsychological tests. Results suggested that there exists no significant systematic relationship between subjective and illness-related factors such as seizure frequency, age at onset, and medication. Instead, stepwise regression analysis revealed that mood (anxiety) explained about 17% of the variance of subjective memory difficulties, whereas performance on a memory test accounted for only 8% of the variance. Findings are discussed in the light of the need to attend to the anxiety of patients with epilepsy in the process of rehabilitation.
