Although the majority of research on human memory has concentrated on a person's ability to recall or recognize items as having been presented in a particular situation, the effects of memory are also revealed in a person's performance of a perceptual task. Prior experience with material can make that material more easily identified or comprehended in perceptually difficult situations. Unlike with standard retention tests, effects of prior experience on a perceptual task do not logically…

Autobiographical memory and perceptual learning: A developmental study using picture recognition, naming latency, and perceptual identification

The results support the idea that perceptual memory is distinguishable from recognition memory, and that it is developmentally stable.

Recognition Memory and Recollective Experience in Alzheimer's Disease

Results are consistent with the assumption that recognition memory may entail two processes, only one of which gives rise to conscious recollection, and they suggest that an impairment of conscious recollection is responsible for the poor performance of AD patients in recognition memory.

State-dependent effects of alcohol on recollective experience, familiarity and awareness of memories

A dissociation of alcohol effects on measures of EM and IM is demonstrated, confirming previous findings with alcohol and providing new evidence for state-dependent retrieval effects on EM but not IM.

The observed dissociations have led a number of investigators to propose that repetition-priming effects are mediated by a "memory system," "memory process," or "form of memory" that is relatively spared in amnesia and that can function independently of the damaged memory process or system that underlies conscious and explicit recolle~tion.

Retention Without Remembering

" Explicit measures of human memory, such as recall or recognition, reflect conscious recollection of the past. Implicit tests of retention measure transfer (or priming)from past experience on tasks

Illusions of face memory : Clarity breeds familiarity q

When people perform a recognition memory task, they may avail themselves of different forms of information. For example, they may recall specific learning episodes, or rely on general feelings of

Exploring the recognition memory deficit in Parkinson's disease: estimates of recollection versus familiarity.

Overall, the Parkinson's disease group showed a reduction in recognition memory, but this appeared to be primarily due to impairment of familiarity, with a lesser decline in recollection, which is related to dysfunction of striatal, prefrontal and/or medial temporal regions in Parkinson's Disease.

Reporting Recollective Experiences: Direct Access to Memory Systems?

It has been suggested that the use of different memory systems can be identified by asking subjects whether they remember or know a recognized stimulus (e g, Gardiner & Java, 1990, Tulving, 1985) In

Illusions of face memory: Clarity breeds familiarity.




Telling more than we can know: Verbal reports on mental processes.

Evidence is reviewed which suggests that there may be little or no direct introspective access to higher order cognitive processes. Subjects are sometimes (a) unaware of the existence of a stimulus

Repetition and Memory1

An analysis of the visual component in recognition memory for verbal stimuli

The results indicate that information about the physical features of verbal stimuli is retained in a visual code that is partially’ or wholly independent of the verbal code for the same stimuli.

Recognizing: The judgment of previous occurrence.

Several suggestions for a class of theories of recognition memory have been proposed during the past decade. These models address predictions about judgments of prior occurrence of an event, not the

Recognitive thresholds for words as a function of set and similarity.

The present investigation was carried out to determine the relationship between preparatory set and the structural characteristics of the words to the recognitive threshold, and it was assumed that the underlying continuum of structural similarity was in terms of perceptually similar units.

Effects of decision difficulty on recognition and recall

Depth of processing and the retention of words

SUMMARY Ten experiments were designed to explore the levels of processing framework for human memory research proposed by Craik and Lockhart (1972). The basic notions are that the episodic memory

Cognitive Effort and Memory

We propose that the concept of cognitive effort in memory is both useful and important. Cognitive effort is defined as the engaged proportion of limitedcapacity central processing. It Was
