The role of attention during encoding in implicit and explicit memory.

  • 1998
TLDR
The results indicate that perceptual implicit tests rely minimally on attention-demanding encoding processes relative to other types of memory tests, and the obtained pattern of dissociations is not readily accommodated by the transfer-appropriate-processing (TAP) account of implicit and explicit memory.

TLDR
The results provide no evidence that generation enhances recollection of contextual details and the specificity of the negative generation effect in context memory argues against a general item-context trade-off.
Divided attention and indirect memory tests
TLDR
The results indicate that conceptually driven indirect memory tests, like direct memory Tests, are affected by divided attention, whereas data-driven indirect tests are not.

The multifactor account of the generation effect makes detailed predictions about the effects of generation on item-specific and relational encoding, predictions confirmed in four experiments using a
Divided attention can enhance memory encoding: the attentional boost effect in implicit memory.
TLDR
It is shown that detecting an infrequent target in a dual-task paradigm actually improves memory encoding for a concurrently presented word, above and beyond the performance reached in the full-attention condition.
Attention and implicit memory tests: The effects of varying attentional load on conceptual priming
TLDR
This study manipulates attention at encoding over several levels (by varying short-term memory load) and examines the effects on the category-exemplar production task (a conceptual implicit memory test) and its explicit counterpart, category-cued recall, to clarify the relationship between attention and performance on implicit memory tests.
Easily perceived, easily remembered? Perceptual interference produces a double dissociation between metamemory and memory performance
TLDR
The perceptual fluency hypothesis of metamemory is tested, which proposes that easily perceived items are predicted to be remembered better, regardless of actual memory performance, and JOLs were higher for intact than for backward-masked words, despite similaractual memory performance for both types of words.
The effects of perceptual interference at encoding on organization and order: investigating the roles of item-specific and relational information.

  • 1999
TLDR
The perceptual-interference effect was investigated from the perspective of the item-specific/relational encoding distinction, which suggests that perceptual interference enhances item- specific encoding but disrupts the encoding of relational and order information.
Memory for actions: Enactment and source memory
TLDR
Sources memory for SPTs decreased and SPT encoding failed to increase source memory and in one condition actually decreased source memory, relative to EPT encoding, as predicted by the source-monitoring framework.
The effects of perceptual interference at encoding on implicit memory, explicit memory, and memory for source.

TLDR
Although perceptual interference enhanced old-new recognition memory, it did not enhance rhyme recognition or source discriminability and an account based on compensatory processing of higher level perceptual representations remains viable and is discussed in terms of the transfer-appropriate processing framework and the item-specific-relational distinction.
