Effect of Association Value in a Memory Scan Task
Department or Administrative Unit
The effects of association value of nonsense forms on reaction times of 16 college students on a Sternberg-type recognition-memory task were examined. Results indicated a linear relation between RT and length of the memorized list for high association-value forms but a non-linear relation for low association-value forms. These data support Briggs' (1974) conclusions regarding the nature of the RT/list length function.
