NOW RETURN TO THE EXPERIMENT
From Squire & Zola (1996)
Encodes context Does not encode context
Threshold retrieval process Retrieval varies with ‘memory strength’
Is degraded in amnesia Is relatively preserved in amnesia
Cannot be manipulated Can be manipulated
Feeling of remembering Feeling of knowing
Variables that increase probability of remembering
Levels of processing (Gardiner, 1988)
Intentional learning (Gardiner, 1988)
Short retention interval (Knowlton & Squire, 1995)
Variables that increase probability of knowing
Revelation effect (LeCompte, 1995)
Priming (Rajaram, 1993)
Non-word vs word presentation (Gardiner & Java, 1990)
