Interference in Memory for Pictorial Information
Anderson, John R.; Paulson, Rebecca
Cognitive Psychology, 10, 2, 178-202, Apr 78
To determine whether different long-term memory representations are necessary for verbal and visual material, subjects studied faces composed of visual features or verbal facts composed of concepts. Findings showed interference between verbal and pictorial information, and supported the ACT theory that pictorial and verbal materials are stored together in an abstract propositional network.
