Remembering and knowing: Two means of access to the personal past
The nature of recollective experience was examined in a recognition memory task, and data support the two-factor theories of recognition memory by dissociating two forms of recognition, and shed light on the nature of conscious recollection.

An alternate framework that emphasizes a distinctiveness-fluency processing distinction is proposed to account for these findings because they cannot easily be accommodated within the existing account of differences in conceptual and perceptual processing for the 2 categories of recollective experience: Remembering and Knowing.
Conceptual fluency selectively influences knowing.
This article shows that Know responses can be selectively affected by fluency of processing that is created using a conceptual manipulation.
Collaboration Both Hurts and Helps Memory
Humans spend a majority of their lives in a social context. So historically, several disciplines have pursued a study of the social aspects of memory. Yet, research on memory in cognitive psychology
The effects of conceptual salience and perceptual distinctiveness on conscious recollection
Two experiments were conducted to examine the hypothesis that recollective experience is influenced by the manipulation of salient or distinctive dimensions of the encoded stimuli (Rajaram, 1996). In
Collaborative Memory: Cognitive Research and Theory
The cognitive components of this complex phenomenon are elucidated and an overarching theoretical framework that specifies the cognitive mechanisms associated with the costs and benefits of collaboration on memory is proposed.
Influence of re-exposure and retrieval disruption during group collaboration on later individual recall
Results show that repeated group recalls (CCI), and securing individual retrieval organisation prior to group recall (ICI), benefit later individual recall more than repeated individual recalls (III).
What Causes Humans to Begin and End a Meal? A Role for Memory for What Has Been Eaten, as Evidenced by a Study of Multiple Meal Eating in Amnesic Patients
It is suggested that memory for what has recently been eaten is a substantial contributor to the onset or cessation of eating of a meal.
Direct comparison of four implicit memory tests.
Four verbal implicit memory tests, word identification, word stem completion, word fragment completion, and anagram solution, were directly compared in one experiment and were contrasted with free
