Lind, P. M. – British Journal of Psychology, 1976
The present study predicted that, if arousal is unitary, then stressors which separately induce it should be additive in their effects on behavioral efficiency. (Editor)

Allsopp, J. F.; Eysenck, H. J. – British Journal of Psychology, 1975
Predictions based on theories of verbal learning proposed by Spence and Eysenck were compared by using a noncompetitive list of paired-associates formed from seven synonym pairs, and a competitive list formed by pairing each of the seven S words with a R word with which it was not synonymous.

Putz, Vernon R. – British Journal of Psychology, 1975
The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of different modes of supervision on a relatively low demanding activity such as a Mackworth-type vigilance task (1950). (Author)

Tilley, Andrew J. – British Journal of Psychology, 1981
Subjects, awaked, presented with a word list, and tested with arousal measures, were reawaked during REM or non-REM sleep and retested. Recall was facilitated by REM sleep. It was hypothesized that the high arousal level associated with REM sleep incidentally maintained the memory trace in a more retrievable form. (Author/SJL)

Millar, Keith; And Others – British Journal of Psychology, 1980
Three separate groups of women performed a semantic classification task during the morning, afternoon, or evening. Results were directly opposite findings that short-term memory performance declines as the day progresses. It is suggested that physiological arousal, which rises through the day, may benefit retrieval efficiency from long-term…

Hamilton, P.; And Others – British Journal of Psychology, 1972
Two experiments were performed to investigate the effects of noise-induced arousal on immediate recall of visually presented paired-associate adjectives. (Authors)

Smith, Barry D.; Principato, Frank – British Journal of Psychology, 1983
Measured arousal and motor responses as a function of conflict type and field structure. Using paper-and-pencil fields, subjects performed under four conflict conditions and a control condition. Arousal increased significantly with increasing conflict complexity and was habitual over repeated trials, though arousal did not differentiate field…

Folkard, Simon; Monk, Timothy H. – British Journal of Psychology, 1980
Two experiments are described that examined the influence of time-of-day of presentation on immediate and delayed retention and its potential effects on retrieval from long-term memory. Time of presentation was found to influence both immediate and delayed (28 day) retention, but not retrieval from long-term memory. (Author/SJL)
