Noncriterial Recollection : Familiarity as Automatic , Irrelevant

  title={Noncriterial Recollection : Familiarity as Automatic , Irrelevant},
  author={Larry L. Jacoby},
Recollection is sometimes automatic in that details of a prior encounter with an item come to mind although those details are irrelevant to a current task. For example, when asked about the size of the type in which an item was earlier presented, one might automatically recollect the location in which it was presented. We used the process dissociation procedure to show that such noncriterial recollection can function as familiarity—its effects were independent of intended recollection.  1996…

On The Relation Between Memory And Metamemory In Free Recall: The Effects Of List Length And Word Frequency On Dual Processes
Subjective judgments about retrieval phenomenologies (remember/know) and memory strength (confidence) are often used in dual-process research to separate recollective from nonrecollective retrieval.
The role of the medial temporal lobe in discriminating complex object and scene stimuli
It was found that young healthy adults at increased genetic risk of AD (ApoE-e4 carriers) showed increased scene-related activity in posterior cingulate cortex (PCC); a region affected, structurally, early in AD.

In three experiments it was found that increasing the length of a study list interfered with conscious recollection but left familiarity in place, suggesting that the two processes were acting in parallel.
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 Process-Dissociation Procedure and Similarity: Defining and Estimating Recollection and Familiarity in Recognition Memory
In this article, we have two objectives. One aim is to demonstrate that estimates of the contributions of recollection and familiarity to recognition memory judgments obtained with Jacoby's (1991)
Process dissociation procedure: Handle with caution!
Abstract The process dissociation procedure (PDP) was introduced as a general-purpose tool for quantifying the extent to which performance on various cognitive tasks is mediated by consciously

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
Separating conscious and unconscious influences of memory: measuring recollection
How can conscious and unconscious influences of memory be measured? In this article, a processdissociation procedure (L. L. Jacoby, 1991) was used to separate automatic (unconscious) and consciously
The Problem of Differing False-Alarm Rates for the Process Dissociation Procedure: Comment on Verfaellie and Treadwell (1993)
Results reported by M. Verfaellie and J. R. Treadwell (1993) contain an interesting paradox: Under standard study conditions in which subjects read words, amnesic patients and control subjects
Source monitoring.
It is argued that source monitoring is based on qualities of experience resulting from combinations of perceptual and reflective processes, usually requires relatively differentiated phenomenal experience, and involves attributions varying in deliberateness.
