Abstract or Summary
  • This experiment used a choice recognition time task. The subjects task was to decide whether a probe tone was or was not among a presented set of one to four tones. One of three cue conditions occured on each trial: the cue (a light) was presented immediately following the tone to-be-forgotten; simultaneously with the tone to-be-forgotten; or not at all. Results indicate that the recognition (and decision) time was a linear function of the number of tones not cued rather than the total number of tones presented. These findings suggest that non-verbal auditory items may be intentionally forgotten, although, an alternate interpretation considered was that the tones may have remained in memory and the subjects selectively scanned and compared only the non-cued tones with the probe.
