Erroneous and Veridical Recall Are Not Two Sides of the Same Coin: Evidence From Semantic Distraction in Free Recall

Article English OPEN
Marsh, John Everett; Hughes, Robert W.; Sörqvist, Patrik; Beaman, Charles P.; Jones, Dylan M.;

Two experiments examined the extent to which erroneous recall blocks veridical recall using, as a vehicle for study, the disruptive impact of distractors that are semantically similar to a list of words presented for free recall. Instructing participants to avoid errone... View more
