Memory and Language Memory and the self q

  title={Memory and Language Memory and the self q},

The relationship between the working self and long-term memory is a reciprocal one in which autobiographical knowledge constrains what the self is, has been, and can be, whereas the… 

Retrieval Interference in Syntactic Processing: The Case of Reflexive Binding in English

The retrieval processes that underlie the reflexive binding are naturally realized in the Lewis and Vasishth (2005) model, and the key predictions of the model concerning the use of non-structural cues are confirmed, which present a challenge for theories advocating the infallibility of the human parser in the case of reflexive resolution.

The emergence and early development of autobiographical memory.

The authors provide a new framework that integrates autobiographical memory with other early achievements (e.g., gesturing, language, concept formation) in a theory that arises as a natural consequence of developments in related domains including in the "software" that drives general memory functioning.
