In this paper, we make a preliminary attempt to approach the phenomenon of prospective memory (PM) from the point of view of Haken's theory of synergetics that refers to complex, self-organizing systems, in general, and to brain functioning and cognition, in particular. In the following, we consider one form of PM only-the so-called event- or cue-dependent PM. We first interpret cue-dependent PM in terms of synergetics and then applythe mathematical formalism of synergetics.
