We report three experiments investigating source memory for words that were called "new" on a recognition test. In each experiment, participants could accurately specify the source of words that they failed to recognize. Results also demonstrated that source memory for unrecognized items varied with the bias to respond "old" in recognition decisions:(More)
Three experiments investigated whether event-based prospective memory was affected by the associative fan of the cues to be detected. The associative fan was operationally defined as the number of associates paired with event-based cues in a paired associate learning phase. Subsequent to the paired associate learning, participants were given a lexical(More)
This study sought to investigate the relationship between cell phone conversation type and dangerous driving behaviors. It was hypothesized that more emotional phone conversations engaged in while driving would produce greater frequencies of dangerous driving behaviors in a simulated environment than more mundane conversation or no phone conversation at(More)
BACKGROUND It has been suggested that high titres of tTG are associated with elevated positive predictive values (PPV) for celiac disease. However, the PPV of a strongly positive tTG will depend on the celiac disease prevalence in the different risk groups of the disease AIMS To assess the PPV of a strongly positive tTG for celiac disease. In addition, to(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the intravesical efficacy of 60 million units of interferon (IFN) alpha-2b in preventing recurrences of Stage pT1 transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder, as well as to assess its local and systemic toxicity. METHODS A total of 90 patients were included in a double-blind, randomized, prospective clinical trial and divided into two(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to examine the specificity of the effects of acquiring expertise on visual working memory (VWM) and the degree to which higher levels of experience within the domain of expertise are associated with more efficient use of VWM. BACKGROUND Previous research is inconsistent on whether expertise effects are specific to the area of(More)
The effect of delay on prospective memory (PM) is mixed. Research has typically shown that PM either decreases or remains unchanged as the time increases between intention formation and encounter with a PM cue. However, the results of one study demonstrated that PM sometimes increases with increasing delays (Hicks, Marsh, & Russell, 2000). Hicks et al.(More)
