The Initiation and Release of Retrieval Inhibition
Abstract Subjects free recalled or were cued with either four or eight retrieval cues in a modified directed-forgetting study. A directed-forgetting effect was observed for free but not cued recall.
Emotion, directed forgetting, and source memory.
The negatively arousing pictures, particularly the ones with violent content, showed a higher tendency of producing misattribution errors than the other picture types, supporting the notion that negative emotion may produce source memory impairment, even though it is still not clear whether the impairment occurs at encoding or retrieval.
Segregation accuracy in item-method directed forgetting across multiple tests.
The R-item advantage in accurate recall is viewed as consistent with the account they receive more rehearsal at study than do F- items and the bias to report items retrieved on an immediate test lacking instructional tags as F-items is viewed.
The antecedents of retrieval inhibition
Abstract The subjects were given one of three types of retrieval tests—free-recall, part-list cued-recall, or part-set cued-recall—in a modified directed-remembering study. A directed-remembering
Brief Report: Effects of Informational Feedback on Aluminum Can Recycling
The impact of informational feedback on the depositing of aluminum cans in recycling receptacles at a medium-sized university was investigated. Informational signs were placed over 20-recycling

The Role of Intentional Forgetting in Employee Selection
Data patterns support laboratory-based studies on intentional forgetting by showing that participants who were instructed to disregard the forbidden information rated the Target Applicant more favorably than did those who were not aware of its presence.
Classification Accuracy across Multiple Tests following Item Method Directed Forgetting
Recall of line-drawing pictures paired at study with an instruction either to remember (TBR items) or to forget (TBF items) showed directed forgetting, which indicates hypermnesia as measured by net recall is possible for items from multiple sets, but at the cost of accurate source information.
Is there hypermnesia and reminiscence for information intentionally forgotten?
The pattern of results suggest that cues to forget impair the encoding of information but, after an initial memory test, they do not interrupt the accessing of that information.
Directed Forgetting of Faces: The Role of Response Criterion
Recognition for faces following item method directed forgetting was examined to indicate that participants employed a strength-based criterion when responding, and participants responding to new faces were more likely to classify those faces as forget faces from study rather than as remember Faces from study.
