Smith, Steven M.; Handy, Justin D.; Hernandez, Alan; Jacoby, Larry L. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2018
It has often been shown that intentional recollection is influenced by context manipulations, such as context reinstatement (e.g., Smith, 2013; Smith & Vela, 2001), but whether or not automatic retrieval (e.g., Jacoby, 1991) is likewise context dependent remains an open question. Here, we present two experiments that examined effects of…

Terry, John; Strait, Gill; McQuillin, Sam; Smith, Bradley H. – Advances in School Mental Health Promotion, 2014
Motivational interviewing (MI) is a brief client-centred intervention that increases intrinsic motivation for change. Little research has been conducted on MI to promote academic behaviours, but two studies found that one session of MI did improve middle-school students' math grades [Strait, G., Smith, B., McQuillin, S., Terry, J., Swan, S., &…

Masicampo, E. J.; Sahakyan, Lili – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2014
We tested whether imagining another context during encoding would offset context-dependent forgetting. All participants studied a list of words in Context A. Participants who remained in Context A during the test recalled more than participants who were tested in another context (Context B), demonstrating the standard context-dependent forgetting…

Smith, Eliot R.; Collins, Elizabeth C. – Psychological Review, 2009
Research on person perception typically emphasizes cognitive processes of information selection and interpretation within the individual perceiver and the nature of the resulting mental representations.

Emery, Alyssa A. – ProQuest LLC, 2017
As careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) increase in both variety and quantity, the need for a STEM-literate public also increases.

Xu, Lihua; Clarke, David – Research in Science Education, 2012
Density has been reported as one of the most difficult concepts for secondary school students (e.g. Smith et al. 1997). Discussion about the difficulties of learning this concept has been largely focused on the complexity of the concept itself or student misconceptions. Few, if any, have investigated how the concept of density was constituted in…

Scott, Rose M.; Fisher, Cynthia – Cognition, 2012
Recent evidence shows that children can use cross-situational statistics to learn new object labels under referential ambiguity (e.g., Smith & Yu, 2008). Such evidence has been interpreted as support for proposals that statistical information about word-referent co-occurrence plays a powerful role in word learning. But object labels represent only…

In their recent article, N. Spillane and G. Smith suggested that reservation-dwelling American Indians have higher rates of problem drinking than do either non-American Indians or those American Indians living in nonreservation settings. These authors further argued that problematic alcohol use patterns in reservation communities are due to the…
