280 Evidence from human memory research indicates that humans can exert active control over the maintenance of memories. In studies involving " directed-forgetting " procedures , in which presentation of a list of items includes signals to remember some of those items but not others, humans show better memory for to-be-remembered items than for items that are signaled to be forgotten (e.g., Bjork, 1972; Epstein, 1972). A possibly related phenomenon has been reported in pigeons using a variation… CONTINUE READING
