To set an optimal decision criterion on a test of recognition, a subject must estimate the degree to which they can discriminate previously studied from unstudied stimuli. To do so accurately, the subject must assess not only their mastery of the material but also the extent to which the distractors yield mnemonic evidence that makes them difficult to discriminate from studied items. In these experiments, we manipulated the degree to which the distractor set overlapped semantically or… CONTINUE READING
