Investigation of the hypothesis that the measured criterion increases systematically with the memorability of old items leads to results consistent with this hypothesis, which is supported by three experiments using the list-strength paradigm and a review of the prior literature.
True and False Recognition in MINERVA2: Explanations from a Global Matching Perspective
The results of four experiments support the predictions of the model and are consistent with the notion that true recognition is primarily due to a high degree of match to a single trace, while false recognition is due to the summing of smaller amounts of similarity to numerous traces.
Oral contraceptives and androgenicity: influences on visuospatial task performance in younger individuals.
Results show that the androgenic activity in OCs influences MRT performance in the presence of static estrogen levels, consistent with a broad range of results demonstrating that visuospatial performance may be enhanced in women who are exposed to androgensic treatments.
The Role of Decision Processes in Conscious Recollection
Dual-process models of recognition memory posit a rapid retrieval process that produces a general sense of familiarity and a slower retrieval process that produces conscious recollections of prior
The Generation Effect : Support for a Two-Factor Theory
When a response word bearing an orthographic, acoustic, or semantic relation to a stimulus word is generated rather than read, later recall is enhanced. Such "generation effects" have been attributed
Modeling the conscious correlates of recognition memory: Reflections on the remember-know paradigm
A single-process model of the remember-know paradigm is presented, emphasizing the dependence of remember and know judgments on a set of common underlying processes (e.g., criterion setting), to demonstrate how a single- process model can give rise to the functional dissociations presented in the remember -know literature.
