McKone (1995) reported a short-lived repetition priming effect, superimposed on long-lived priming. This short-term implicit memory survived a few intervening items and several seconds for words but decayed precipitously for nonwords, producing a lag 3 lexicality interaction. Here, mechanisms of decay are studied by disconfounding the time delay and interference components of lag. In Experiment 1, time delay was varied while number of intervening items was held constant, and vice versa. In… Expand
Acquisition of novel traces in short-term implicit memory: Priming for nonwords and new associations
TLDR
Two cases are presented where, in contrast, preexperimental familiarity did not affect short-term priming, indicating acquisition of novel traces in lexical decision and naming. Expand
In search of decay in verbal short-term memory.
TLDR
The results of these studies indicate that short-term memories are subject to very small decay effects with the mere passage of time but that interference plays a much larger role in their degradation. Expand
Memory, Interference and Depression.
Is forgetting in the short-term due to decay with the mere passage of time, interference from other memoranda, or both? Past research on short-term memory (STM) has revealed some evidence for decayExpand
The Interdependence of Long- and Short-Term Components in Unmasked Repetition Priming: An Indication of Shared Resources
TLDR
Both long-term and short-term priming were accurately captured by a single power function over seven minutes post repetition, suggesting the two components may draw on the same resources. Expand
Writing and overwriting short-term memory
  • P. Killeen

TLDR
An integrative account of short-term memory is based on data from pigeons trained to report the majority color in a sequence of lights and shows that averaging exponential and power functions from individuals or items with different decay rates generates new functions that are hyperbolic in time and in log time, respectively. Expand
Short-term implicit memory: Visual, auditory, and cross-modality priming
TLDR
Modality differences suggest that short-term priming has a perceptual locus, with the phonological lexicon maintaining stimuli active longer than the orthographic lexicon and treating pseudowords as potential words. Expand
Recognizing the Role of Consistency in a Delayed Memory Task
Past research on short-term memory decay has found that participants are more efficient at remembering information when the delay between stimuli presentation and recall is short as opposed to long.Expand
The role of implicit memory in visual word recognition: Principles and processes of long- and short-term repetition priming
This review examines the role of lQngand short-term repetition priming research in the theoretical debate between episodic and abstractionist accounts of implicit memory. The empirical research andExpand
The mind and brain of short-term memory.
TLDR
A conceptual model tracing the representation of a single item through a short-term memory task is described, describing the biological mechanisms that might support psychological processes on a moment-by-moment basis as an item is encoded, maintained over a delay with some forgetting, and ultimately retrieved. Expand
Explaining short-term memory phenomena with an integrated episodic/semantic framework of long-term memory
TLDR
It is concluded that an integrated theory of long-term memory must be augmented to explain a small number of outstanding memory phenomena, and whether the augmentation needs to involve a dedicated mnemonic system, or sensory or language-based systems, which also have mnemonics capabilities. Expand

Short-term implicit memory for words and nonwords.
A short-term implicit memory effect is reported and interpreted as arising within the word recognition system. In Experiment 1, repetition priming in lexical decision was determined for low-frequencyExpand

Long-term repetition priming with symmetrical polygons and words
TLDR
The results indicate that response facilitation accruing from repeated exposure can be observed for stimuli that have no preexisting memory representations and suggest that perceptual factors contribute to repetition-priming effects. Expand

TLDR
This effect was observed with college students and amnesic patients, suggesting that word completion performance is mediated by implicit memory for new associations that is independent of explicit recollection. Expand
The time course of repetition effects for words and unfamiliar faces.
TLDR
Results are taken as showing that repetition effects, like other measures of memory, are influenced by the type of stimulus, its preexperimental history, the level to which it is processed, and the lag between the initial presentation and the test. Expand
Does implicit memory extend to legal and illegal nonwords?
  • J. Bowers

TLDR
Results suggest that implicit memory can extend to legal and illegal nonwords and that significant inhibitory priming for legal nonwords was observed when a lexical-decision task was used. Expand
Episodic and lexical contributions to the repetition effect in word identification.
TLDR
The results of the experiments suggest separate contributions of lexical status and presentations to the repetition effect, and a model was developed that outlines the relative contributions of episodic traces for particular events, and of uriitized representations of words in semantic memory, to the repeats in word and nonword identification.

TLDR
The modality-specific component of the repetition effect found in the word/nonword categorization paradigm may be attributed to persistence in the nonlexical, as distinct from lexical, part of the word categorization process. Expand

TLDR
Five experiments investigated the role of sublexical components in implicit memory for novel words and found that priming on an implicit word judgement task occurred consistently but minimally for nonwords formed out of unfamiliar pseudosyllabic components. Expand
