The influence of memory on the subjective experience of later events was investigated in two experiments. In one experiment, previously heard sentences and new sentences were presented against a background of while noise that varied in intensity. In a second experiment, a cue set of words was presented either before or after a target set that was embedded in noise. The cue set was either the same as or different from the target set. In both experiments, one of the tasks was to judge the…

Differences in perception and memory for speech fragments in complex versus simple words

Abstract Two experiments investigated how people perceived and remembered fragments of spoken words that either corresponded to correct lexical entries (as in the complex word drink-er) or did not

An illusion of memory: false recognition influenced by unconscious perception

The results of two experiments showed that an illusion of memory can be produced by unconscious perception. In a first phase of those experiments, a long list of words was presented for study. For

The Effect of Aging and Priming on Same/Different Judgments Between Text and Partially Masked Speech

The current results suggest that, under some conditions, the automatic priming process that may contribute to benefits from context is not as strong in older as in younger adults.

Effects of Prior Experience on Judgments of Normative Word Frequency: Automatic Bias and Correction

Four experiments examined repetition priming effects on judgments of normative word frequency. Experiment 1a found reliable priming, but only when words were studied under conditions of full

The marriage of perception and memory: Creating two-way illusions with words and voices

In two experiments, listeners gave reduced noise estimates to previously heard words, but only when the original voices were preserved, and in two recognition memory experiments, viewers gave increased old responses to words (or voices) presented in relatively soft background noise, suggesting that memory can be mistaken for perceptual fluency, and perceptualfluency can be confused for memory.

Memory predictions are influenced by perceptual information: evidence for metacognitive illusions.

Highly accessible perceptual cues can strongly influence JOLs, likely via encoding fluency, and this effect can lead to metacognitive illusions.



The effect of a prior presentation on temporal judgments in a perceptual identification task

The results indicate that duration judgments provide a valuable dependent measure of memory in the perceptual identification task and support the misattribution hypothesis: A prior presentation enhances perceptual identification, and this increase in relative perceptual fluency is incorrectly attributed to a longer presentation duration.

On the relationship between autobiographical memory and perceptual learning.

The experiments that are reported were designed to explore the relationship between the more aware autobiographical form of memory that is measured by a recognition memory test and the less aware form ofMemory that is expressed in perceptual learning.

It is concluded that both perceptual and memory tasks rely on the retrieval of memory for whole prior processing episodes but can differ in terms of the number and nature of retrieval cues that they provide.

Units of episodic memory in perceptual recognition

Two studies examined the cognitive units of sentence memory using a perceptual recognition task and no conclusive evidence was obtained for concepts, integrated propositions, or nonintegrated propositions as cognitive units.

Visual position discrimination: A model relating temporal and spatial factors

This paper presents a decision theory model of the perceptual processes by which an observer compares two visual stimuli presented at different points in time and at different locations in the visual
