Interfering with the perceptual processing of a stimulus can improve memory. The perceptual-interference effect was investigated from the perspective of the item-specific/relational encoding distinction. This perspective suggests that perceptual interference enhances item-specific encoding but disrupts the encoding of relational and order information. The results of 6 experiments were largely consistent with this view. In Experiments 1 and 2, perceptual interference (a hypothesized item… CONTINUE READING
