The authors argue that implicit measures of social cognition do not reflect only automatic processes but rather the joint contributions of multiple, qualitatively different processes. The quadruple process model proposed and tested in the present article quantitatively disentangles the influences of 4 distinct processes on implicit task performance: the likelihood that automatic bias is activated by a stimulus; that a correct response can be determined; that automatic bias is overcome; and that… 
Cognitive processes in implicit attitude tasks: An experimental validation of the Trip Model
Implicit attitude tasks have become very popular in various areas of psychology. However, little is known about the cognitive processes they involve. To address this issue, we investigated the
Toward a comprehensive understanding of executive cognitive function in implicit racial bias.
The main findings were that measures of implicit bias were only weakly intercorrelated, and EF and estimates of automatic processes both predicted implicit bias and also interacted, such that the relation between automatic processes and bias expression was reduced at higher levels of EF.
What Mistakes Disclose: A Process Dissociation Approach to Automatic and Controlled Processes in Social Psychology
Process dissociation is a model for separating automatic and controlled contributions to responses in a single task. Although it was developed to separate conscious and unconscious uses of memory,
An integrative review of process dissociation and related models in social cognition
This chapter reviews the use of formal dual process models in social psychology, with a focus on the process dissociation model and related multinomial models. The utility of the models is
Dissociating Automatic Associations: Comparing Two Implicit Measurements of Race Bias.
These findings support models positing distinct learning and memory systems for different forms of race bias, and suggest that these differing forms contribute to estimates of automatic associations.
What Do Implicit Measures Tell Us?: Scrutinizing the Validity of Three Common Assumptions
The validity of all three widespread assumptions in research using “implicit” representations is equivocal and theoretical interpretations should be adjusted accordingly, and an alternative conceptualization is discussed that distinguishes between activation and validation processes.
Implicit Attitudes Reflect Associative, Non-associative, and Non-attitudinal Processes
Author(s): Calanchini, J; Sherman, JW | Abstract: It is a common assumption that responses on implicit measures are proxies for automatically activated associations stored in memory. Consequently,
The role of recoding in implicit social cognition: Investigating the scope and interpretation of the ReAL model for the implicit association test
The initial goal of the present research was to validate an abbreviated version of the ReAL model on the standard IAT procedure, and the application of these findings to implicit social cognition research, and their implications to social cognitive theory.
Response Interference as a Mechanism Underlying Implicit Measures Some Traps and Gaps in the Assessment of Mental Associations with Experimental Paradigms
Over the last decade, implicit measures of mental associations (e.g., Implicit Association Test, sequential priming) have become increasingly popular in many areas of psychological research. Even
A Process Dissociation Model of Implicit Rapid Revision in Response to Diagnostic Revelations
This work finds consistent support across two different implicit measures that diagnostic behaviors result in rapid changes in evaluative processes, and helps to reveal the cognitive processes underlying rapid implicit revision.


Toward unbiased measurement of conscious and unconscious memory processes within the process dissociation framework.
Several variants of the original process dissociation measurement model are integrated in this article, and it is shown that the model ignores guessing and, hence, response bias.
How do indirect measures of evaluation work? Evaluating the inference of prejudice in the Implicit Association Test.
A surprising additional result was that nonwords were treated as though they were evaluated more negatively than obviously negative items like insects, suggesting that low familiarity items may generate the pattern of data previously interpreted as evidence for implicit prejudice.
Dual-process theories in social psychology
This informative volume presents the first comprehensive review of research and theory on dual-process models of social information processing. These models distinguish between qualitatively
Abstract We hypothesized that scores on the Implicit Association Test (IAT) are confounded with a general cognitive ability of how quickly one can process information when the IAT categories seem in
Imagining stereotypes away: the moderation of implicit stereotypes through mental imagery.
The results suggest that implicit stereotypes are malleable, and that controlled processes, such as mental imagery, may influence the stereotyping process at its early as well as later stages.
Underlying processes in the implicit association test: dissociating salience from associations.
Salience asymmetries corresponded to IAT results and also accounted for common variance in IAT effects and explicit measures of attitudes or the self-concept.

Bearing false witness under pressure: Implicit and explicit components of stereotype-driven memory distortions.
Abstract This research asked why people falsely remember stereotype-consistent information when cognitive resources are depleted. A task adapted from Jacoby's (1991) process dissociation procedure
Implicit memory. Retention without remembering.
The article reviews research on the relation between explicit and implicit memory and argues that many dissociations can be understood by appealing to general principles that apply to both implicit and explicit tests.
