Sample text

A test of recall for the word pairs revealed that the use of visual imagery increased memory scores, but the group using interactive images produced the highest scores of all. 5 An interactive image A recent study by De Bene and Moe (2003) confirmed the value of imagery in assisting memory, but found that visual imagery is more effective when applied to orally presented items rather than visually presented items. e. the visuo-spatial loop of the working memory), whereas visual imagery and orally presented items will be held in different loops of the working memory (the visuo-spatial loop and the phonological loop, respectively) and will thus not be competing for storage space.

Sometimes we cannot find a memory trace even though it remains stored in the brain somewhere. e. e. retrievable). In fact, most forgetting is probably caused by retrieval failure rather than the actual loss of a memory trace from storage, meaning that the item is available but not accessible. Successful retrieval has been found to depend largely on the availability of suitable retrieval cues (Tulving & Pearlstone, 1966; Tulving, 1974, 1976). Retrieval cues are items of information that jog our memory for a specific item, by somehow activating the relevant memory trace.

Anderson, Bjork, & Bjork, 1994, 2000; Macrae & MacLeod, 1999; MacLeod & Macrae, 2001). Anderson et al. (2000) established that the inhibition of an item only occurs when there are two or more items competing for retrieval, and when a rival item has actually been retrieved. This supported their theory that retrieval-induced forgetting is not merely some accidental event, but involves the active suppression of related but unwanted items to assist the retrieval of the item actually required. Early experiments suggested that retrieval-induced forgetting might have a relatively short-lived effect, but MacLeod and Macrae (2001) found a significant inhibition effect lasting up to 24 hours after the retrieval practice occurred.
