Recollection-based recognition memory judgments benefit greatly from effortful elaborative encoding, whereas familiarity-based judgments are much less sensitive to such manipulations. In this study, we have examined whether rote rehearsal under divided attention might produce the opposite dissociation, benefiting familiarity more than recollection. Subjects rehearsed word pairs during the “distractor” phase of a working memory span task, and were then given a surprise memory test for the… 
Investigation into the memory processes that underlie judgments of recency
Judgements of recency (JORs) are decisions about how long ago a repeated item was initially presented. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were acquired in three experiments, alongside behavioural
Exploring the Utility of Recollected Content in a List-Specific Recognition Task
School of Psychology ii ABSTRACT There has been considerable debate within the literature between those who view recognition as the result of two processes (recollection and familiarity) and those
The effect of intrinsic image memorability on recollection and familiarity
The results show that current machine vision algorithms that can predict an image’s intrinsic memorability in terms of hit rates fall short of describing the subjective quality of human memories.
The development of recollection and familiarity in childhood and adolescence: evidence from the dual-process signal detection model.
Overall, recollection and familiarity showed distinct developmental and functional characteristics and the dual-process signal detection model proved promising for developmental investigations.
The effect of ageing on recollection: the role of the binding updating process
The overall results support the hypothesis that the age-related decline in episodic memory is partly due to a greater vulnerability to interference on bindings, impairing the ability to update content-context bindings as and when events occur.
Emotional valence influences the neural correlates associated with remembering and knowing
Results suggest that memories for negative items may be vividly recollected due to increased sensory processing during encoding, whereas enhanced gist-based processing of positive information may lead to increased feelings of familiarity.
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 Nature of Recollection and Familiarity: A Review of 30 Years of Research
To account for dissociations observed in recognition memory tests, several dual-process models have been proposed that assume that recognition judgments can be based on the recollection of details
Maintenance rehearsal affects knowing, not remembering; elaborative rehearsal affects remembering, not knowing
In a directed-forgetting paradigm, each word in a study list was followed by a cue designating that word as eitherlearn orforget, and there were more remember responses after the short cue delay; cue delay influenced know responses, regardless of word designation.
The Relation between Remembering and Knowing as Bases for Recognition: Effects of Size Congruency
Abstract In three recognition memory experiments, subjects studied a list of randomly generated geometric shapes, followed by a recognition test in which old items were either size congruent (same
The Role of Decision Processes in Conscious Recollection
Dual-process models of recognition memory posit a rapid retrieval process that produces a general sense of familiarity and a slower retrieval process that produces conscious recollections of prior
Recognition memory ROCs for item and associative information: The contribution of recollection and familiarity
The results showed that memory judgments about items relied on a combination of recollection and familiarity, but that judgments about associations relied primarily on recollection.
How Level of Processing Really Influences Awareness in Recognition Memory
Abstract In yes/no and two - alternative forced - choice recognition tests, subjects reported one of three states of awareness when selecting each target: remembering, knowing, or guessing. A
The detection model of recognition using know and remember judgments
The signal detection model forknow andremember recognition judgments was tested in two experiments and predicted that measures of memory sensitivity are equivalent in value when based on either the recognition (know or remember) criterion or on the remember criterion.

Investigation of the hypothesis that the measured criterion increases systematically with the memorability of old items leads to results consistent with this hypothesis, which is supported by three experiments using the list-strength paradigm and a review of the prior literature.

Evidence is presented that recognition judgments are based on an assessment of familiarity, as is described by signal detection theory, but that a separate recollection process also contributes to
