  • Chunking and redintegration in verbal short-term memory. [Journal Article]
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 2019Norris D, Kalm K, Hall J
  • Memory for verbal material improves when words form familiar chunks. But how does the improvement due to chunking come about? Two possible explanations are that the input might be actively recoded into chunks, each of which takes up less memory capacity than items not forming part of a chunk (a form of data compression), or that chunking is based on redintegration. If chunking is achieved by redi…
  • The (lack of) effect of dynamic visual noise on the concreteness effect in short-term memory. [Journal Article]
    Memory 2018; 26(10):1355-1363Castellà J, Campoy G
  • It has been suggested that the concreteness effect in short-term memory (STM) is a consequence of concrete words having more distinctive and richer semantic representations. The generation and storage of visual codes in STM could also play a crucial role on the effect because concrete words are more imaginable than abstract words. If this were the case, the introduction of a visual interference t…
  • Testing the redintegration hypothesis by a single probe recognition paradigm. [Journal Article]
    Memory 2018; 26(9):1256-1264Kowialiewski B, Majerus S
  • The lexicality effect in verbal short-term memory (STM), in which word lists are better recalled than nonwords lists, is considered to reflect the influence of linguistic long-term memory (LTM) knowledge on verbal STM performance. The locus of this effect remains, however, a matter of debate. The redintegrative account considers that degrading phonological traces of memoranda are reconstructed at…
  • Phrase frequency effects in free recall: Evidence for redintegration. [Journal Article]
    J Mem Lang 2017; 97:1-16Jacobs CL, Dell GS, Bannard C
  • Four experiments examined the effects of word and phrase frequency on free recall. Word frequency did not affect word recall, but when participants studied and recalled lists of compositional adjective-noun phrases (e.g. alcoholic beverages), phrase frequency had a consistently beneficial effect: both words from frequent phrases were more likely to be recalled than for infrequent phrases, providi…
  • Keeping it together: Semantic coherence stabilizes phonological sequences in short-term memory. [Journal Article]
    Mem Cognit 2018; 46(3):426-437Savill N, Ellis R, … Jefferies E
  • Our ability to hold a sequence of speech sounds in mind, in the correct configuration, supports many aspects of communication, but the contribution of conceptual information to this basic phonological capacity remains controversial. Previous research has shown modest and inconsistent benefits of meaning on phonological stability in short-term memory, but these studies were based on sets of unrela…
  • Serial reconstruction of order and serial recall in verbal short-term memory. [Journal Article]
    Mem Cognit 2017; 45(7):1126-1143Quinlan PT, Roodenrys S, Miller LM
  • We carried out a series of experiments on verbal short-term memory for lists of words. In the first experiment, participants were tested via immediate serial recall, and word frequency and list set size were manipulated. With closed lists, the same set of items was repeatedly sampled, and with open lists, no item was presented more than once. In serial recall, effects of word frequency and set si…
  • The phonological neighbourhood effect on short-term memory for order. [Journal Article]
    Memory 2017; 25(3):391-402Clarkson L, Roodenrys S, … Hulme C
  • There is a growing body of literature that suggests that long-term memory (LTM) and short-term memory (STM) structures that were once thought to be distinct are actually co-dependent, and that LTM can aid retrieval from STM. The mechanism behind this effect is commonly argued to act on item memory but not on order memory. The aim of the current study was to examine whether LTM could exert an infl…
