The purpose of this study was to investigate symptom recall bias among college students. We expect that the results will show that subjects who take the survey while experiencing physical illness will estimate related symptoms to occur more frequently than they estimate when they are not sick.

Keywords: symptom, recall, bias, physical, illness, state-dependent memory, frequency
