The finding that new items are judged as remembered in the remember-know paradigm presents a challenge to traditional process and systems accounts of memory. In three experiments, we demonstrated that false remember responses can be caused by misattributing recollection to a context other than the study list. In Experiments 1 and 2, false remember responses to distractors that were unrelated to studied words increased if they were encountered in a “preexposure” phase a few minutes or even a few… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Remember/Know Judgments Probe Degrees of Recollection
TLDR
This work found that the accuracy of source recollection was significantly above chance for studied words that were declared to be old and known and held true even when the source decision was made before the old/new decision (i.e., even after successful recollection had just occurred). Expand
The influence of instructions and terminology on the accuracy of remember–know judgments
TLDR
It is concluded that researchers should use neutral terminology and source-specific instructions to collect the most accurate reports of the experiences of remembering and knowing arising from the study context. Expand
On the validity of remember–know judgments: Evidence from think aloud protocols
TLDR
Results indicated that the vast majority of remember judgments for studied items were associated with recollection from study, but this correspondence was less likely for high-confidence judgments, and high- confidence judgments were more likely than remember judgments to be associated with incorrect recollection and a lack of recollection. Expand
Aging reduces veridical remembering but increases false remembering: Neuropsychological test correlates of remember–know judgments
TLDR
Any comprehensive explanation of recollective experience will need to account for the processes underlying both remember hits and false alarms, and it is shown that the neuropsychological correlates of remember Hits andfalse alarms differ. Expand
A continuous dual-process model of remember/know judgments.
TLDR
A new signal-detection model is proposed that does not deny either the validity of dual-process theory or the possibility that remember/know judgments can-when used in the right way-help to distinguish between memories that are largely recollection based from those that are mainly familiarity based.

Resisting false recognition: An ERP study of lure discrimination
  • A. Morcom
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Brain Research
  • 2015
TLDR
Electrical brain activity was measured while healthy young adults performed a mnemonic discrimination task, deciding whether color pictures had been studied, were similar to studied pictures (lures), or were new, suggesting reliance on recollection to decide that items were studied, supported by post-retrieval processing. Expand
Chapter Three - False Recollection: Empirical Findings and Their Theoretical Implications
This chapter reviews the literature documenting particularly compelling false memories—memory errors that people subjectively experience as similar to authentic memories (referred to as falseExpand
Automatic processing influences free recall: converging evidence from the process dissociation procedure and remember-know judgments
TLDR
It is concluded that retrieval in free recall tests is not driven solely by conscious recollection (or remembering) but also by automatic influences of the same sort believed to drive priming on implicit memory tests. Expand
Covert retrieval in working memory impacts the phenomenological characteristics remembered during episodic memory
TLDR
The results are consistent with the view that covert retrieval in WM promotes content-context bindings that are later accessible from EM for both objective performance and subjective details of the remembered information. Expand
Pre-experimental Familiarization Increases Hippocampal Activity for Both Targets and Lures in Recognition Memory: An fMRI Study
TLDR
The present results are incompatible with “noncriterial” or “false” recollection being reflected solely in inflated DPSD familiarity estimates and support a positive correlation between hippocampal activity and memory strength irrespective of the accuracy of list discrimination, consistent with the unequal variance signal detection model account.

TLDR
The nature of recollective experience was examined in a recognition memory task, and data support the two-factor theories of recognition memory by dissociating two forms of recognition, and shed light on the nature of conscious recollection. Expand
Remembering and knowing in context
Abstract Prior to a recognition test, subjects studied one set of words in a medium level of processing (LOP) task and another set of words in either a shallow or deep LOP task. Medium items receivedExpand
Examining the basis for illusory recollection: The role of remember/know instructions
TLDR
Results suggest that remember responses to falsely recognized items are driven partly by retrieval of studied items, rather than illusory recollection of the critical lures themselves, and point to the importance of instructions in influencing subjective reports. Expand

Abstract In three recognition memory experiments, subjects studied a list of randomly generated geometric shapes, followed by a recognition test in which old items were either size congruent (sameExpand

TLDR
The results show that subjective feelings of recollection play a role in the effects of environmental context but are likely based more on a sense of familiarity that is evoked by the context than on explicit associations between targets and their study context. Expand
Aging reduces veridical remembering but increases false remembering: Neuropsychological test correlates of remember–know judgments

TLDR
The authors proposed a decision-based mechanism called "the expectancy heuristic" to explain why remember responses were more likely when items were studied or tested in the context of words that were relatively less distinct. Expand
