Reminiscence: Evidence for Reorganization in Free Recall.
Tzeng, Ovid J. L.
Sixty subjects learned four different 16-word lists in four different conditions. Within each list, every word was repeated. The four conditions were defined by a 2 (whole vs. blocked presentation) by 2 (same order vs. random order repetition) factorial design. An unexpected final free recall followed the immediate free recall of the fourth list. It was found that significantly more reminiscence was observed in the whole-random condition, suggesting that initially imposed organization hindered the subsequent reorganization. (Author)
