Repeated recall of pictures, words, and riddles: Increasing subjective organization is not sufficient for producing hypermnesia



Repeated recall of pictures, words, and riddles: Increasing subjective organization is not sufficient for producing hypermnesia



Bulletin of the Psychonomic Society 30(5): 407-410



Davis and Dominowski (1986) presented subjects with riddles to solve followed by five recall tests with no intervening study opportunities. They found increasing net recall levels across tests (i.e., hypermnesia), as well as an increase in the degree of organization in recall. In the present experiment, subjects were presented with riddles, pictures, or words. A significant hypermnesic effect was obtained with the riddles and pictures, but not with the words. There were significant and equivalent increases in subjective organization across tests for all three conditions, indicating that an increase in subjective organization across tests is not sufficient to produce hypermnesia. Finally, there were systematic changes in the rate of recalling items across tests, and these may be related to hypermnesia.
