Expectancies as a Determinant of Interference Phenomena
Hasher, Lynn; Greenberg, Michael
American Journal of Psychology, 90, 4, 599-607, Dec 77
One version, by Lockhart, Craik, and Jacoby, of a levels-of-processing model of memory asserts the importance of the role of expectancies about forthcoming information in determining the elaborateness of a memory trace. Confirmed expectancies result in less-elaborated memory traces; disconfirmed expectancies result in elaborate memory traces. Tests an extension of this model to account for the buildup and release from proactive interference seen in Brown-Peterson (1976). (Editor/RK)
