Conditions of Cumulative Proactive Inhibition
Postman, Leo; Keppel, Geoffrey
Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 106, 4, 376-403, Dec 77
The conditions and characteristics of cumulative proactive inhibition were investigated in three experiments. Subjects went through 8 study-recall cycles, with the critical tests of retention occurring 48 hours after acquisition. Results of the experiments suggest that cumulative proactive inhibition builds up only when retention is measured by means of a test of recall. (Editor/RK)
