Our study shows promising results for future research on implicit learning processes in daily life, with the proviso of careful consideration of the timescale used. Short-term retrospective ESM design with beeps approximately six hours apart may suffer from mismatch noise that hampers accurate detection of associative learning effects over time.
We investigated deviations in the temporal dynamics (i.e., variability, instability, and inertia) of Positive Affective in anhedonia and showed that individuals with anhedonia are likely less ‘flat’ or ‘blunted’ than generally thought.

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is the leading cause of disability worldwide. The cardinal features of MDD are depressed mood and anhedonia. Anhedonia is defined as a markedly diminished interest or pleasure in all, or almost all, activities of the day, and has generally been investigated on group-level using retrospective data (e.
