Abstract: Three incidental-learning procedures tested the hypothesis that the picture superiority, imagery, and generation effects each depend on the convergence of elaboration on the target concept rather than on the extent of elaboration. Undergraduates saw pairs of either words or pictures, either interacting or adjacent, and either verbalized or imaged the relationship between the items.
