The effect of spacing on judged frequency was independent of P1 duration. In Experiment II, pictures were given M massed presentations just prior to the PM-PM+1 spacing interval. The form of the spacing curve was independent of M. Neither experiment confirmed the prediction of “overhabituation,” derived from… CONTINUE READING
