We developed a laboratory analogue of the "forgot-it-all-along" effect that J. W. Schooler, M. Bendiksen, and Z. Ambadar (1997) proposed for cases of "recovered memories" in which individuals had forgotten episodes of talking about the abuse when they were supposedly amnestic for it. In Experiment 1, participants studied homographs with disambiguating context words; in Test 1 they received studied- or other-context words as cues; and in Test 2 they received studied-context cues and judged… Expand

Tables and Topics from this paper

Making remembering more memorable*
TLDR
Reminding significantly reduced the negative effect of cue change, with self-generation being especially potent and indicates that reminding can make remembering more memorable in the face of context change. Expand
Memory of Remembering: Investigating the Forgot-It-All-Along Effect Using Pictures
from your past, and then suddenly remembered that event many years later? If so, you may have experienced a phenomenon known as a recovered memory, in which an event that has been forgotten for anExpand
Forgetting having denied: The “amnesic” consequences of denial
TLDR
It is shown that denial does not impair memory for the experienced stimuli, but that it has a unique ability to undermine memory for what has been talked about. Expand
A Remember/Know Examination of Free-recall Reveals Dissociative Roles of Item- and Context-Information over Time
TLDR
The findings provide several converging pieces of evidence for differential roles of item and contextual information in driving recall and thus highlight the need to extend longstanding theories of free-recall to account for cases in which recall relies less on context. Expand
Self-referential encoding does not benefit memory for prior remembering across changing contexts
TLDR
It is suggested that self-referential encoding does not benefit memory for prior remembering in the face of contextual change, as shown in the findings of the present study. Expand
Underestimation of prior remembering and susceptibility to false memories: Two sides of the same coin?
TLDR
Results show that FIA and DRM performances are relatively independent from each other, suggesting that these measures empirically apparently refer to separate dimensions, however, they do not seem to define different profiles in terms of dissociation, fantasy proneness, and cognitive efficiency. Expand
Forgetting of Prior Remembering in Persons Reporting Recovered Memories of Childhood Sexual Abuse
TLDR
People reporting recovered or continuous memories of childhood sexual abuse and control subjects reporting no history of abuse participated in two experiments examining this “forgot it all along” phenomenon. Expand
The impact of false denials on forgetting and false memory
TLDR
It is suggested that false denials not only have negative consequences, but can have positive ones too (reduction in false memories) and that the act of falsely denying reduced the formation of false memories. Expand
I haven't thought about this for years! Dating recent recalls of vivid memories
In three studies, we examined memories for previous recall. In Studies 1 and 2, undergraduates were asked whether they had vivid memories about various childhood events. After a one-hour (Study 1) orExpand
The Continued March Towards Ecological Validity in Laboratory Studies of Blocked and Recovered Memories
The debate over the existence of recovered memories remains a divisive issue for mental health practitioners and cognitive scientists, in part due to a limited understanding of the processesExpand

Case studies of individuals who claimed to have recovered previously repressed memories of abuse during situations that involved memory cueing revealed that some individuals had discussed abuse withExpand
Recollective experience in word and nonword recognition
TLDR
The findings are interpreted as providing further support for the distinction between episodic memory and other memory systems, and also as providing more qualified support for theories that assume that recognition memory entails two components, one of which may also give rise to priming effects in implicit memory.

Encoding specificity and retrieval processes in episodic memory.

This paper describes and evaluates explanations offered by these theories to account for the effect of extralist cuing, facilitation of recall of list items by nonlist items. Expand

Memory for memory
TLDR
Although participants accurately remembered the majority of past memory successes, they were poor at remembering past memory failures, and after being provided with the correct answer and tested again, the participants’ performance improved somewhat, especially for memory failures. Expand
Transfer-appropriate processing (TAP) and repetition priming.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the importance of the specific intentional processes engaged during repetition priming and the potential heuristic value of TAP, as a principle and methodology, for exploring the organization of memory and related process models. Expand
