Now after they read the words and answer the questions, the subjects are randomly split into two groups. Again, this is on more instance where we see “memory for meaning”, rather than verbatim recall of what was previously presented. Alphabetical List Categorical List Memory: Cognitive Psychology 2 Look Specifically at items 1,4,6,12, A second piece of evidence for semantic integration is that subjects were very good at responding “NEW” to sentences which combined ideas across groupings from the first list.

Ss’ subsequent attempts to recognize those exact sentences heard during acquisition are shown franis be a function of the complete ideas acquired. The higher the propositional complexity, the more confident the subjects were that they had heard the sentence in List 1. Subjects are asked to identify the briefly presented word.

Dissertation, University of Minnesota, Grammatical structure and the immediate recall of English sentences. Interlingual facilitation of short-term memory. Shows evidence that learning takes place when the subject is not aware their memory is brnasford to be tested. This is a little bizarre that a consciously chosen encoding strategy can affect the unconscious process of Implicit memory tests.


Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior,4, Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior,2, Thus, Ss are most confident of “recognizing” sentences expressing all the semantic relations characteristic of a complete idea, in spite franke the fact that such sentences expressed more information than was communicated by any single sentence on the acquisition list.

Semantic Memory seems to be unaffected, while episodic memory is considerably disrupted, or not available for access. These our ONE proposition statements. They constructed a clever experiment which showed how we link together related ideas into an integrated whole. The participants were given a set of short sentences that expressed simple concepts.

The implicit memory test was NOT affected by the type of question which was paired with the word. After they heard and answered 24 sentences, there was a five minute delay, and subjects were then presented with a second list of sentences.

Neurological Evidence supporting multiple long term memory systems. Subjects were much more likely to “false alarm” or false positive to 3 and 4 propositional sentences. Ss become less confident of having heard particular sentences as a function of the degree to which a sentence fails to exhaust all the semantic relations characteristic of a complete idea.

Results indicate that during an acquisition phase of the experiments, Ss spontaneously integrate the information expressed by a number of non-consecutively experienced but semantically related sentences into wholistic, semantic ideas, where these ideas encompass more information than any acquisition sentence contained.

Cognitive Psychology Class Notes: Schemas

Recognition memory for syntactic and semantic aspects of connected discourse. Perception and Psychophysics,2, Propositional complexity in the first list varied from 1 to 3.

Since the complete integration of the related sentences resulted in a four proposition structure, they falsely believed the 4 proposition statements presented during the testing phase had indeed come from the original list, because that combined proposition is consistent with their internal mental representation of those related, but unconnected sentences.


Each word is flashed on computer screen for 35 ms.

bransfrod In addition to rating the sentence as new or old, they also assigned confidence values which stated how sure the subject was of their response. What was your average CR given for these items?

They identified the long sentences composed of the short sentences they had seen more readily than the short sentences themselves. This suggests that participants automatically integrate concepts they see into schemas that integrate the concepts. Some effects of grammatical transformations on the adn of English sentences. The phenomenon of “idea acquisition and retention” is demonstrated experimentally and contrasted with an “individual sentence memory” point of view.

Second, PET scan results show different patterns of activation dependent upon whether subject is accessing a semantic or an episodic memory. The psychological reality of phrase-structure rules.

The Integrative Memory Tendency: Integration of linguistic materials. Alphabetical List Categorical List. Then they were asked to identify which of the sentences they had seen before. Found evidence for depth of processing effects with Implicit memory tests. What was your average CR confidence rating given to these items?
