Presentation-time limits on memory retrieval.


Journal Article

An experiment which varied presentation-time of a list of 20 sentences relating pairs of words was done. The subjects were 94 undergraduates. Processing variations included for some groups instructions to use visual imagery, and retrieval variations included recall and matching recognition. The results indicate that variations in presentation-time are strongly related to memory retrieval. Several experiments are reviewed, and the importance of specifying presentation-time in studies of memory-retraining in brain-damaged patients is emphasized.
