Differential Memory of Picture and Word Stimuli in a Paired-Associate Learning Task.
Bartels, Laura Grand; Feinbloom, Jessica
Ten concrete nouns represented in either a pictorial or a linguistic mode and accompanied by ten nonsense syllables were shown to 77 college students in a study of how pictorial stimuli varied in recall and recognition tasks. The group receiving pictorial stimuli recalled and recognized significantly more nonsense syllables than did the group receiving written stimuli. Regardless of mode of presentation, significantly more nonsense syllables were recognized than recalled, adding further support for the effectiveness of pictures in learning situations. (Author/RL)
