Murphy, Martin D.; Brown, Ann L. – Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 1975
Preschoolers' recall and clustering of organized lists of pictures were examined either under deliberate instructions to remember or in incidental learning situations. It was concluded that the activity of the children determines depth of processing and subsequent retention, not the intent to remember. (JMB)
