Motivational Influences on Cognition: Task Involvement, Ego Involvement, and Depth of Information Processing.
Graham, Sandra; Golan, Shari
Journal of Educational Psychology, v83 n2 p187-94 Jun 1991

Ego involvement resulted in poorer word recall at deep rather than shallow information processing levels. Implications for the study of motivation are discussed. (SLD)
