Understanding serial position curves in short-term recognition and recall

  title={Understanding serial position curves in short-term recognition and recall},
  author={Klaus Oberauer},
The experiment analyzed serial position curves in recall, global recognition (comparing probes to whole lists) and local recognition (comparing probes to specific items in a list). Input order, output order, and the spatial order to be memorized were deconfounded by presenting and probing items in random order in different spatial positions. Primacy and recency effects over input position were observed for all three tasks. Only primacy emerged over output position. Spatial position affected… CONTINUE READING
