Nairne (1988) has recently demonstrated that interfering with the perceptual processing of an item at study improves later memory for that item. Nairne hypothesized that interfering with perceptual processes induces a data-driven generation process that enhances the representation of visual information. Using a variant of Nairne's procedure, we both replicated his original findings and tested his hypothesis that enhanced data-driven processing causes the current effect. The results of studies… CONTINUE READING
