Speech register research shows that humans are adept at finetuning components of their speech to accommodate the needs audience of the audience, suggesting that they have a model of human communication needs. However, when that audience is a computer rather than another human, such a model may be invalid. Here we examine humans’ speech to other humans or an(More)

Studies manipulating emotional valence in prospective memory (PM) have so far revealed inconsistent results. In the present study, two experiments were conducted to systematically disentangle the effects of varying emotional valence in the encoding versus retrieval phase of PM in older adults. Results showed that, while cue valence at retrieval had no(More)
Some studies have found that prospective memory (PM) cues which are emotionally valenced influence age effects in prospective remembering, but it remains unclear whether this effect reflects the operation of processes implemented at encoding or retrieval. In addition, none of the prior ageing studies of valence on PM function have examined potential costs(More)
