The Isolation Effect in Free Recall and Recognition

Abstract

The isolation effect was studied in an experiment which measured, in different groups, either free recall or recognition of a series of words, each series containing one isolated item. An isolation effect was obtained in free recall but not in recognition. The results are discussed in terms of the retrieval mechanisms operating in free recall.
