Warren, Linda – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1974
The present experiment attempted to separate these three aspects of retention loss (response competition, loss of list differentiation, and loss of response availability) and to assess their effects at both a short and long retention interval. (Author/RK)

Deffenbacher, Kenneth A.; And Others – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1974
Thirty-two male undergraduates were given a paired-associate list and then tested for recall either 2 min. or 45 min. later. Arousal level at time of learning was manipulated by E observing some Ss. (Editor)

Comstock, Elizabeth M. – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1973
The data from this study support the hypothesis that the encoding of a letter, as well as operations associated with responding, requires attention in the sense of processing capacity. (Author)

Adams, Jack A; And Others – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1972
The hypothesis was tested that forgetting could be found on one trial in the absence of interference if the conditions or response-produced feedback were sufficiently reduced. The task was the learning and recall of a linear movement. (Author)

Parkinson, Stanley R. – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1972
The results of the experiments reported here are in support of the hypothesis that visual and aural presentation lead to different forms of storage and/or retrieval. They are not consistent with models of human memory in which short-term storage is restricted exclusively to an auditory-verbal-linguistic process. (Author)

Postman, Leo; Hasher, Lynn – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1972
This study investigates proactive inhibition (PI) under conditions of multiple trial free recall (MFTR). The question of theoretical interest concerns the mechanisms of interference that influence response recall per se. (Authors)

Lehr, Donald J.; And Others – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1972
Certain assumptions regarding the mechanism of retroactive inhibitions (RI) and spontaneous recovery were examined. Results are considered supportive of an interpretation of RI and recovery based upon the dissipation of response set interference. (Authors)

Fuchs, Alfred H.; Melton, Arthur W. – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1974
The principal objective of this research was to examine the interelations of degree of learning, length of to-be-remembered (TBR) units, and retention interval, with particular reference to the concept of "intraunit interference". (Author/RK)

Tell, Phillip M.; Ferguson, Alexander M. – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1974
The present study was designed to provide a finer analysis of the effects of active and passive vocalization vs. silent visual presentation on recall at various retention intervals through the use of the distractor technique. (Author)
