|Can you Forget what you Believe? Directed Forgetting of Attitude Information
||Research shows that people can intentionally forget previously learned information when instructed to do so - known as the directed forgetting effect (for a review, see MacLeod 1998). The current experiments investigated intentional forgetting of sel...
|Individual differences in forgetting strategies
||Two experiments employed a combination of item method and list method directed forgetting methodologies (Bjork, LaBerge, & Legrand, 1968). Participants studied two lists of items, half of which were subsequently cued to-be-forgotten (TBF) or to-be-re...
|Investing the "time" in time-based prospective memory
||Time-based (TB) prospective memory tasks require the estimation of time in passing - known as prospective timing. Prospective timing is said to depend on an attentionally-driven internal clock mechanism, and is thought to be unaffected by memory for ...
|Beliefs about item memorability affect metacognitive control in item-method directed forgetting
||Across six experiments, I examined the role of metacognitive control in item-method directed forgetting. In Experiment 1, participants studied loud and quiet items, which were subsequently cued as to-be-remembered (TBR) or to-be-forgotten (TBF). Typi...
|The effect of list two length on context information in list-method directed forgetting
||The current study investigated the claim that in list-method directed forgetting, List 2 must be as long as List 1 in order to obtain directed forgetting (Pastötter & Bäuml, 2010). Participants studied two lists of words for a later memory test, and ...
