Interference and encoding processes

The interference effects of a card-sorting task on immediate and final free recall were investigated and it was hypothesized that as the amount of interference present during learning increased, Ss would resort to the use of a more stable storage mechanism but the results did not support this hypothesis.

Serial position curves in free recall.

The scenario for free recall set out in Laming (2009) is developed to provide models for the serial position curves from 5 selected sets of data, for final free recall, and for multitrial free

Concerning the role of perceptual factors in the serial position effect

The experiment described here addresses itself to the serial position effect of recall, and in particular to the cause of primacy. Two of the three theories discussed here (selective rehearsal and

Serial position phenomena: Training and retrieval effects

With successive free recall lists primacy items are usually among the first to be reported on the initial list. Recency items will then take over and be first reported on later lists. This retrieval

Contextual variability and serial position effects in free recall.

Both the end of list Recency effect and the lag recency effect, across all distractor conditions, can be explained by a single-store model in which context, retrieved with each recalled item, serves as a cue for subsequent recalls.

Time of Day and Processing Strategy in Free Recall

Consistent effects of time of day have been observed in digit span/sequence performance, and in the immediate memory for information presented in prose. However, studies using syntactically

Testing the Idea of Distinct Storage Mechanisms in Memory

This paper sets out quantitative foundations for testing the idea that memory is served by two distinct storage mechanisms, a short-term and a separate long-term store, using data from the



Serial effects in recall of unorganized and sequentially organized verbal material.

The serial position curve for serial anticipation and that for free recall are roughly mirror images of one another, since the exact form of the curves will depend upon the material and method of testing.

Some Tests of the Decay Theory of Immediate Memory

A theory of the memory span, based on this hypothesis, is put forward and shows that the effect of additional stimuli interpolated before recall remains considerable even when there is an interval of several seconds between presentation of required and additional stimuli.

Serial Organization in the Recall of Disconnected Items

In the recall of any series of discrete verbal items, the probability of recall for any given item depends upon the position of that item in the series. The exact form of the relationship between

Decay Theory of Immediate Memory

In the course of a study relevant to the memory requirements for using telephone dials, an experiment was carried out which would seem to provide unambiguous support for the decay theory of recall.

The serial position effect of free recall

The serial position curve is characterized by a steep, possibly exponential, primacy effect extending over the 1st 3 or 4 words in the list, an S-shaped recency effect extending over the last 8 words

Perception and communication

First published in 1958, this book has become recognized as a classic in its field. It marked a transition between behaviourist learning theory and the modern 'information processing' or 'cognitive'
