Standard context-dependent memory studies have shown that when information is encoded in a certain environmental context (EC), recall performance is weakened when retrieval occurs in a different, rather than the same, EC. Here, we show that this contextdependent forgetting can be eliminated using mental imagery at encoding. In two studies, participants used mental visualization of the retrieval EC during the encoding process. The results of the first study highlighted the importance of context… Expand
