Imagery and the short term recall of words by schizophrenics



Imagery and the short term recall of words by schizophrenics



Psychological Record 31(1): 47-56



Process schizophrenics, reactive schizophrenics and normal adult volunteers were tested for immediate free recall of 2, 3 and 4 pair word lists that were presented dichotically. Each pair consisted of 1 high imagery and 1 low-imagery word. Amount recalled was an interactive function of imagery and list position and was similar for each list length. The groups differed in amount recalled but their patterns of recall as an interactive function of imagery and list position were virtually identical. Supplementary analyses tentatively linked the differences in amount recalled to processes underlying the tendency to emit acoustically related intrusion errors, the tendency to begin recall with items from the 1st list position and the tendency to preserve presentation structure in recall.
