A Stringent Test of the Influence of Attitudes on Text Memory.
Zimny, Susan T.; Robertson, Donald U.
Discourse Processes, v24 n2-3 p167-97 1997
Uses W. Kintsch's Construction Integration model as a framework to explore the effects of preexisting attitudes on memory for texts. Shows that preexisting attitudes interacted with attitude texts over delay although not in a direct or expected fashion. Emphasizes the need to manipulate representational levels of attitude texts and to consider capacity restraints in construction of these levels of representation. (SR)
