Participants learned the locations of 12 stimuli that were uniquely colored but could be grouped by shape (4 circles, 4 triangles, 4 crosses). Following the study, a retrieval-practice phase required participants to recall the colors of a subset of the stimuli (i.e., 2 circles, 2 triangles) using shape and location as cues. In a final test, participants recalled the colors of all 12 stimuli. Compared with the control set of stimuli (i.e., 4 crosses), memory was facilitated for practiced items… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Forgetting induced by recognition of visual images.
TLDR
It was found that practicing recognition of a subset of items resulted in forgetting of other objects in the group, however, impaired recognition did not spread to new objects belonging to the same category.
Incidental retrieval-induced forgetting of location information
TLDR
Evidence is provided that peripheral location information associated with an item during study can be also inhibited when the retrieval conditions promote the inhibition of more central, item identity information.
Forgetting induced by recognition of visual images
TLDR
It was found that practising recognition of a subset of items resulted in forgetting of other objects in the group, however, impaired recognition did not spread to new objects belonging to the same category.
How motor practice shapes memory: retrieval but not extra study can cause forgetting
TLDR
Retrieval was a necessary component for practice to shape memory for body movements by impairing the subsequent recall of motor sequences that were related to the practiced motor sequences.
Exploring Retrieval Induced Forgetting with ad hoc categories
The retrieval-practice paradigm has demonstrated that the act of selectively recovering some of the previously studied items from a category impairs the retrieval of the remaining items from that
Target strength and retrieval-induced forgetting in semantic recall
TLDR
The evidence that RIF in semantic retrieval is both retrieval dependent and weaker following massive target practice than following moderate target practice provides strong support for inhibition-based theories of RIF.
Interference in episodic memory: retrieval-induced forgetting of unknown words
TLDR
The results show that episodic associations suffice for selective retrieval of verbal material to entail retrieval-induced forgetting independent of association strength between items and categories in semantic memory.
Retrieval-induced forgetting occurs in tests of item recognition
TLDR
These results conceptually replicate those of previous retrievalinduced forgetting studies done with cued recall and are inconsistent with the hypothesis that item-specific cues during retrieval will eliminate retrieval interference in the retrieval-practice paradigm.
Retrieval-induced forgetting: Evidence for a recall-specific mechanism
TLDR
These findings argue that retrieval-induced forgetting is not caused by increased competition arising from the strengthening of practiced items, but by inhibitory processes specific to the situation of recall.

TLDR
A critical role for suppression in models of retrieval inhibition and a retrieval-induced forgetting that implicate the retrieval process itself in everyday forgetting are suggested.

TLDR
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.

TLDR
This paper reviews the studies that have yielded the effect of having available a subset of the items as cues, and considers several explanations of it that have been proposed.
Retrieval-induced forgetting in an eyewitness-memory paradigm
TLDR
Repeated interrogation of a witness can modify the witness’s memory-enhancing the recall of certain details while inducing the forgetting of other details-even when no misinformation is contained or implied in the questioning.
A retrieval theory of priming in memory.
TLDR
The retrieval theory is applied to priming phenomena and is shown to be capable of explaining the same empirical findings as spreading activation theories.
