Investigating Proactive Interference Effects After Switching Encoding Language in Bilingual Individuals 2023 156 Proactive interference (PI) is the phenomenon where previously learned information hinders recall of later learned information. A common method of studying PI is to ask participants to memorize several lists of words, with poorer recall of words from...
When to move on to new learning: meta-cognition’s role on updating with incorporation 2019 269 Updating with incorporation occurs when people learn previously unstudied (newer) information with the intention of adding it to a body of previously studied (older) information. Testing information usually leads to better recall later, even when exp...
Is the plausibility account of the illusion of truth effect plausible? 2019 359 Repeated statements are more likely to be judged as true compared to statements that have not been repeated. This phenomenon in known as the Illusion of Truth effect. The most studied theory is that fluency induced by repetition gives an illusion tha...
Remember to forget: does strategic retrieval from the list before the last enable forgetting of the most recent information 2020 184 Successful forgetting in list-method directed forgetting procedures has only been observed when new information is encoded following the forget cue. A recent study, however, observed forgetting of the most recent information without post-cue encoding...
Remembering when to better recall what 2021 107 The possible role that temporal context plays in recall has been a recurring theme within the spacing literature. This study aims to determine whether remembering an item’s temporal context makes that item more likely to be recalled. Participants wer...
Problem solving difficulty from unrecognized equivalency 2011 1407 Equivalency occurs in problem solving when a single state can be represented by multiple configurations. If unrecognized, multiple equivalent states can be perceived as new, unique states. This confusion can hinder problem solving. Three experiments ...
Assessing summary writing as a memory strategy 2011 3834 Writing a summary has been described as the most effective text-retention strategy. However, a review of the literature suggests that existing experiments on summarizing fail to include some of the most productive methods for improving text-retention...
Assessing temporal associations in recall: a new take on the strategy disruption account of the part-set cuing effect 2012 1619 Presentation of cues during recall impairs recall of non-cued items (part-set cuing effect). Assessment of retrieval strategies (i.e. temporal associations) within the part-set cuing paradigm can lead to a better understanding of the mechanisms under...
Does the testing effect impact favorability judgments? 2013 986 Delayed recall of material is better when the material is retrieved on a previous occasion relative to when the material is restudied -- a phenomenon known as the testing effect. The studies reported here aimed to better understand the link between a...
