Effect of repetitive presentation of study lists on pictorial false recognition
repetitive presentation of study list
In the DeeserRoediger and McDermott(DRM) procedure (Deese,1959;Roediger &McDermott,1995),false recognition of an item that is not presented (the criticallure) can occur when participants study and are tested on their recognition of items related to the critical lure.The present study examined effect of repetitive presentation of study lists on false recognition,using pictorial items.In the experiment,Participants were presented with lists of pictorial items either 1 time or 2 or 7 times,followed by a recognition test.The present study showed that true recognition of presented items increased with lists repetition and false recognition of critical lure decreased with lists repetition. The findings were consistent with dual process accounts of false memory. Taking into account the previous results in the studies that examined the efftct of repetitive presentation on false recognition with word items,the present study that used pictorial items represent an important generalization to the physical realm of repetitive presentation.
