Distinguishing Lexical- versus Discourse-Level Processing Using Event-Related Potentials
Published online: 12 October 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Two experiments examine the links between neural patterns in EEG (e.g., N400s, P600s) and their corresponding cognitive processes (e.g., lexical access, discourse integration)...
Do People Keep Believing Because They Want to? Preexisting Attitudes and the Continued Influence of Misinformation
Published online: 5 September 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Misinformation-defined as information that is initially assumed to be valid but is later corrected or retracted-often has an ongoing effect on people's memory and reasoning. We...
Executive Control Influences Linguistic Representations
Published online: 9 August 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Although it is known that words acquire their meanings partly from the contexts in which they are used, we proposed that the way in which words are processed can also influence their...
Identity Categories and Transformational Paths for Face Changes across the Age Spectrum
Published online: 11 September 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract How faces change across lengthy time periods and whether the changing appearance of a face functions as an identity category was investigated in two experiments. In Experiment...
Intentional Forgetting: Note-Taking as a Naturalistic Example
Published online: 7 September 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract In the present study, we examined whether note-taking as a memory aid may provide a naturalistic example of intentional forgetting. In the first experiment, participants played...
Pilgrims Sailing the Titanic: Plausibility Effects on Memory for Misinformation
Published online: 5 September 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract People rely on information they read even when it is inaccurate (Marsh, Meade, & Roediger, Journal of Memory and Language 49:519-536, 2003), but how ubiquitous is this phenomenon?...
Prospective Memory: Effects of Divided Attention on Spontaneous Retrieval
Published online: 18 September 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract We examined the effects of divided attention on the spontaneous retrieval of a prospective memory intention. Participants performed an ongoing lexical decision task with an embedded...
Relational and Item-Specific Influences on Generate-Recognize Processes in Recall
Published online: 15 January 2014# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract The generate-recognize model and the relational- item-specific distinction are two approaches to explaining recall. In this study, we consider the two approaches in concert. Following...
Testing Potentiates New Learning in the Misinformation Paradigm
Published online: 12 September 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Retrieval enhanced suggestibility (RES) is the finding that the misinformation effect is exacerbated when a test precedes misleading postevent information (Chan, Thomas, &...
The Effect of Discourse Structure on Depth of Semantic Integration in Reading
Published online: 17 September 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract A coherent discourse exhibits certain structures in that subunits of discourses are related to one another in various ways and in that subunits that contribute to the same discourse...
The Effects of Healthy Aging on the Mnemonic Benefit of Survival Processing
Published online: 30 July 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract A number of studies have shown that information is remembered better when it is processed for its survival relevance than when it is processed for relevance to other, non-survival-related...
The Emergence of Explicit Knowledge from Implicit Learning
Published online: 20 September 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Substantial evidence has highlighted the ability of observers to incidentally extract statistical contingencies present in visual environments. This study examined whether the...
Using the Memory Activation Capture (MAC) Procedure to Investigate the Temporal Dynamics of Hypothesis Generation
Published online: 31 August 2013# Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2013Abstract Research investigating top-down capture has demonstrated a coupling of working memory content with attention and eye movements. By capitalizing on this relationship, we have developed...
