In the presence of interference, recall of pairs can critically depend on the diagnostic power of memory of the order of items within the pair. Models of pair memory make different assumptions about whether and how such order information is stored, from convolution-based models, which assume no explicit storage of order, to matrix models and several models(More)
Associations are confusable when they share an item. For example, double-function pairs (with the form AB, BC) are harder to remember than control pairs. Although ambiguous pairs are more difficult on average, it is not clear whether memories for associations compete directly with one another (associative competition hypothesis), as assumed by models that(More)

In learning associations (e.g., a pairing of items, A-B), the hippocampus appears to implement Associative Symmetry, namely, when learning a forward association (A->B), picking up the backward association (B->A) for free [3], a characteristic of human association-memory that has been replicated numerous times (e.g., [5]). A mathematical operation that does(More)
