The Role of Response Confusion in Proactive Interference
Dillon, Richard F.; Thomas, Heather
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 14, 6, 603-615, Dec 75

However, results indicate that proactive interference is primarily the result of inability to generate correct items, rather than confusion between present and previous items. (CHK)
